I'm Thankful for...

I have been reading "One girls head noise" by Pam in AOL, UK journals and was truly inspired by her. She is taking me on a journey that is very scary yet beautiful in the way she looks at her journey and writes about it. I feeling especially thankful this year and after reading about Pam, I feel this is a perfect time to share what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for ALS, it took this two by four to change my life for the better. I got to raise my girls, find a power stronger than
myself, appreciate life, the gift of compassion and an abundance of love.

I am thankful for Dave, who loves me endlessly, learned to cook, does the laundry without complaints and has bought us a retirement home in the mountains near a lake. I retired 11 years ago and he retires at 50 in 21 months...WaaHoo. I love you!

I am thankful for my children, minus the hormones and mood swings. They are healthy and are struggling but becoming the women they were meant to be. Love you my babies!

I am thankful to get to see my 1st grandchild on December 28th. I never thought I'd get this gift but I'm still going to spoil it rotten. Pay back time! Sorry...My bad...LOL

I am thankful to my friends who have become the family I never had. They taught me how to "receive love" and to ask for help because it's a gift for them as much as it is for me. I love you guys!

I am thankful for my new blog where I can share my thoughts, always have a good read, find inspiration and be productive. I am thankful for Pam!

I am thankful the most for God, you never left my side, you took away my fears and you rewarded me beyond my imagination. Forever yours!

I like the way you look at life's challenges. I'm an AOL refugee. I found you through Beth's journal, on her front porch. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Tammy, Sorry you are sick on Thanksgiving! Drink some hot tea and get some hugs from your family. BTW, a student of mine recommended CRASH to me and I watched it just a couple of weeks ago. Very powerful movie, and it fits my philosophy perfectly. Keep recommending; I thrive on that sort of thing. Get well!

Happy Thanksgiving Tammy!

I like your list of things you're thankful for very much, and I want to say congratulations on your impending "grandmotherhood" (Is that a word? It is now!) You're going to love being a grandmother! (I know; I have Xander, who's 3). Happy Thanksgiving to you and to Dave.

I understand this entry to the bottom of my soul...

I really do.

It is how I feel about my brain tumor and my MS.

I am grateful for them because they helped me stopped and really thank God for the good things I do have.

Like you, I have more than enough.

Lovely post.
