Wow! Yes I have so much to be thankful for. In reality I do every year, I think we all do. This year however I was given a second chance at life. I am not sure what I've done so good in my life that I deserve that second chance, but I was given it. Rest assured I am thankful for it and will be doing some major changes in my life to show my gratefulness. It's not every day you cheat death. Someone was most definitely watching out for me. By all accounts I should not be here. The pain started on Friday and I did not go to the hospital until Sunday. On Monday as they did tests they found three arteries blocked. A triple bypass in order. I was lost on the table yet the Doctor brought me back. I believe in God and do think he saved me that day. I also believe my sister was there too. I saw no bright light, flowing gown, and I heard no voices (but my sons) but I know she was there. She was telling me to stop trying follow her ::grin::
My son. OMG! How lucky I am to have a child so mature and responsible. I've known that along time and have been proud of him for years. His strength and compassion that he showed during my time of need was incredible. He is still watching out for me and every day shows a love that not many are privileged to have with their child. Unconditional. Again, what I've done in my life that was so good that I deserve him is beyond me but I am thankful.
My family. Standing by me, pushing me to get better. Doing what they can to make the recovery that much easier. Friends have been there too. In real life and online. Over and over again letting me know I mean something to them. A wonderful feeling that makes me feel special. Loved. Thankful again.
I had a list, a long list, but decided this year I am thankful for everything and a list isn't needed. I have my second chance and will do some soul searching for self improvement. A little more caring, be kinder, more helpful. All things that I need to do to show how thankful I am.
I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. Let you know I am thankful for you too! Each of you are very special to me. Enjoy your day no matter what your plans are. Find the goodness and live happily.
