We have so very much to be thankful for this year...although it's been a difficult year for so many, we still have much for which to be thankful. Where do I begin? My mom
of 89, despite the fact that she is very ill is soooooooooooo excited that the kids will be here for the holiday. A pretty good doctor's report yesterday, no transfusion this week...and that's exactly what mom wanted them to say. My sweet husband
, I know for sure I wouldn't have made it through these last months without him. He's there to do whatever needs to be done, always has words of reassurance, and sometimes just the fact that he's sitting with me is all I need to make it through. My wonderful Josh and Katie
, who completely changed their plans for Thanksgiving, we were all going there. Josh and the children will be here this evening, he's driving down with them and Katie will be here in the morning, she's flying in at 9...the doctor wouldn't let her sit in the car for that long since our "Buster" is due the beginning of Jan and she always goes at least a week early. My amazing friends
, the calls, the e-mails, the notes of support have done more for me than any of you will ever know...I am so thankful. Good health
, despite the fact that I turn the big 60 tomorrow I am in wonderful health, a little twitch or twinge occasionally but for the most part in great shape for an old girl.
I could go on and on I know...but it feels really good to make a list of things to be thankful for...this is exactly what I need to do each and every day...stop and think of the things I have to be thankful for and not dwell on the other stuff...as a very dear friend of mine told me the other day..."We can't do a thing about yesterday, we are not able to control what tomorrow will bring, we have today, we need to take care of today." I love it! Really put everything in perspective for me...yesterday's done, I can't fix anything that happened then...tomorrow is going to come and I need to just wait and take care of it when it gets here...TODAY
, that is the gift I have.
Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving...ENJOY every moment...I know I will!
