  • Thankful

    I am thankful that I have my mom to be with for thanksgiving. She is a tremendous blessing when my chips are down. It is quite humbling.I am stronger than I was five years ago, yet I wonder if it is enough especially for these times.I am thankful for the resources available to me to help me better manage my chronic health needs. I am thankful there is a degree of peace and understanding between my husband and I at this time. I am thankful that there are credit cards. I am thakful that I did find a ride to work when the car stopped. I am thankful that I don't know the future and that God is loving and kind.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    I'm thankful for my family! Without them, I would be lost.

      Thanksgiving worked out. Mom made it happen. I helped with my special dessert. I made broccoli, I cut the snack veggies, set the table, I said how much I enjoyed the meal. No bladder discomfort even with several slices of crustless pumpkin pie!!!!! I am pleased that I have current pictures of my family.
