I wanted to say a very happy, blessed Thanksgiving to all of those who are celebrating! I wanted to do a list of things I'm grateful for. The first of which is I am thankful to have all of you in my life! You keep me strong and help keep me motivated in my weight loss, you listen to me bitch and moan and share in my success!!
I am also very thankful that I have my health and that I am continuing to work toward a healthier me. As a nurse, I always see people who are in poor health and are suffering this time of year. I am so grateful that I am not ill or in pain or suffering! And I pray that those who are find peace this holiday season!
I am so thankful to be employed in a time where so many are unemployed or underemployed. I'm thankful that I have patients who I adore and who brighten my day up! Even though it may be tough some days, I am always grateful that I have what I do!
I'm thankful to have a roof over my head and food on my table. I'm thankful that I have clothes to wear and shoes on my feet!
But most of all I'm thankful for my family. I'm here in Illinois with my family who I love and wish that I got to see more often. I'm thankful that my paternal grandparents are still living and are in good health, I'm so thankful that I have aunts and uncles, cousins, my brother and sister, and my parents!!
I'm heading off to my Uncle's house for Thanksgiving. He's fighting head and neck cancer and I'm so happy to be here with him this year and to enjoy each and every minute with those I love!
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Have a wonderful day, enjoy yourself and life!
