Today, I am grateful for many things. I think it is important to think about those things that we have been blessed with (whatever your faith may be), so that we do not take those things for granted.
I am grateful to have a loving and supportive, kick-ass family. We may be big and loud, but we also have a ton of love to share. This goes out, also, to those friends that feel like family. I love you all.
I am grateful to have a wonderfully geeky fiance, who loves me like there is no tomorrow. I thank him for his love and support, even when I decide to do crazy things like quit my job and start my own companies. He gets me, and I love that.
I am grateful for my health, even in its weakened condition. Part of yesterday’s fear included a trip to the Hematologist/Oncologist, where they would give me my test results. I tend to run a high white blood cell count (which means you are fighting an infection), even when I am feeling well. The long-term implications with no infection could mean leukemia, or something equally horrible. I, in fact, completely convinced myself that I was going to be diagnosed, and tried coming to terms with that (mostly based on the receptionist insisting that I be seen right away!). Which is probably why the old man at the table next to me in the mall asked me if I had lost my only friend in the world. I guess my ability to hide my emotions kind of blows.
Fortunately, I got a clean bill of health from the doc. Whew! I have never felt so scared and then totally jazzed. Especially since I just quit my job with health insurance. Doh!
I am grateful for my ability to work to support myself, even if it is in an unconventional way. I am looking forward to truly challenging myself in my work for the first time in, well, ever. I am also thankful for my friends who are working with me in these ventures. Love you guys!
So, that is about all the sappy prose I have in me for today. I really want to blog about the parade of ugly prom dresses we saw at a rehearsal dinner last night, and am kicking myself for not taking pictures. I could have had a seriously kick-ass 27 Dresses kind of post. Oh well.
What are you grateful for today?
I’m grateful that God give us opportunities for 2nd chances in life!
It is funny you pose this question and I am reading it today…because today I feel very grateful for the life I have. As much as I tend to complain about it…I love my life. I love everything about it.
I need to appreciate that more. Lots more.
