I have much to be thankful for, even in the midst of a difficult year.
First, the minor things:
I am thankful that I'm done with chemo and was able to skip radiation.
I am thankful that my hair is growing back.
I am thankful for this time of year in Florida....bye bye heat and humidity.
Now the most important things:
I am thankful for my family.
- thankful for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law who helped us through this difficult time.
- thankful for my children who weathered things well and showed compassion for me when I wasn't feeling well.
- thankful, most of all, for my husband who lived up to his marriage vows in an incredible way. As life has continued to unfold for us, I am thankful that we found each other and have stuck together for 11 years. I grow to appreciate and love him more every day....except for when he forces me to watch inane Jackie Chan movies--there are some things which go beyond the bounds of love.
There are endless things for which I should be grateful. I don't always recognize them at the time. May God help me to remember the unexpected graces which come my way.
