Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for something that seems miniscule, but I am trying not to take stuff for granted. I'm thankful for the health insurance that comes with my job. I have an extended dental plan that covers the majority of any dental work I need done (including cleanings and exams every 9 months). My dentist has recommended that I get a night guard to prevent me from grinding my teeth at night. The pricing of the night guard is just shy of $500, so it's not a small amount. Fortunately for me, my dental insurance covers the cost, so I won't be out of pocket right before Christmas.

It's small, but right now it feels like a lot.

I need to get one of those too! I am sooooo THANKFUL for our benifits as well.... medication (100% covered for us) would cost us about $1000.00 per MONTH, if we didn't have coverage. OUCH! Let me know if the brace helps, I have been avoiding getting mine :P

$500 is a big deal. I'm glad it's covered for you. Vince doesn't get any kind of health benefits through his job so I'm glad I have them too so he has coverage.
