Thanks to all who reminded me to be thankful. I know I complain too much and have my own little ‘pity parties’ too often.
I’m thankful for a wonderful supportive husband who takes care of me without complaint.
I’m thankful for my wonderful children. One son lives close enough to be a real help. Today, he and his girl friend took me Christmas shopping and wrapped gifts. My other son lives too far away to be more than moral support – but I’m grateful for that. His wife is in a wheelchair and he takes such good care of her.
I’m thankful for my Abyssinian cat, Fritz, for all the time he spends cuddling with me when I’m down.
I’m thankful all my family will be with me at Thanksgiving – and that they are staying in motels this year.
I’m thankful for a good job with good medical insurance, for good doctors who don’t blow me off, and that my back feels wonderful after the very successful surgery.
I’m especially thankful for my church family and pastor. Their prayers keep me going.
I’m so thankful for all of you. I can read and learn. Listen and share. I can laugh and cry and know you are all feeling the same. There is such comfort in that.
