So I made it to the end of this blog challenge by writing something everyday for 7 days. Ya me (considering my first post was about procrastination, haha).
I thought I would end things with what I am grateful for. I’m blessed to have an awesome husband who has supported me through all the crap things (of which there have been plenty the last few years, namely cancer, reconstruction and blood clots, along with the recent death of my mom, touched my heart more than he can know to see a tear in his eye at her memorial service).
I’m also lucky to have good friends, not a whole gaggle of them but some very important, close ones. They supported me through all our challenges too. Just being there to listen is wonderful but they always go beyond that.
My sister is also someone I am hugely grateful for. Even though we were adopted apart and grew up separately, we’ve become so much closer the last few years. She’s an incredible and compassionate person. I’m lucky to have her in my life and so glad we’ve gotten closer.
There’s the mundane things I’m grateful for, a good job, a nice house, not having to spend my days stressing about bills.
I also have 4 furry kids that bring joy to my life. They also bring a lot of mayhem but how can you be mad at them when they are so adorable?
Lastly, everyone always says they are grateful for their good health. Unless you have gone through bad crap, you don’t realize how important it is to be healthy. The days when you don’t make you realize how much you yearn for it and are jealous of those that are healthy and oblivious to how blessed they are. Currently, I have good health. Had a scare a couple weeks ago but that seems to be how things go in my post-cancer life. You’re always on alert and always waiting for results. But today, I am healthy enough and I am thankful for that and to not be in pain.
Try to find one thing today you are grateful for!
