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?

  1. 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.
