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?
