So yesterday I concentrated mostly on things I was/am thankful for. One of which is the double oven we have cause it made cooking a hell of a lot easier on us! Other than that, here is what I came up with in no particular order:

  • Obviously being alive!
  • What little family & friends I have left.
  • Our dog Lexie, who is my baby!
  • Great Medical Insurance that covers my cancer & reconstruction & doesn't cost a fortune.
  • A WONDERFUL husband, who has stood by through-out all highs & lows of cancer, menopause, multiple surgeries, and caring for myself and carrying the household while I was on bedrest healing for 3 months!
  • I'm extremely thankful to not have had any tropical storms or hurricanes close in on NOLA this past "season".
  • To be blessed with the life we have that allows us to live a life of excess - buying what we want, when we want - to have 2 vehicles that are fairly new, nice and paid for - to have a beautiful 4,000 sq. foot home, as a roof over our heads - to not have to worry about money and bills and have little to no debt. I am very thankful for being able to live comfortably!
  • To have plenty of food to eat, a roof over my head, warmth when cold, A/C when hot, cable, internet, and lots of other things normally taken for granted!

Now if only we could all lose all the excess weight we have, become healthy, and be able to fore go surgeries, that would really make me thankful!

So what are you thankful for this year? I can't wait to hear!
