As 2019 comes to an end I look back at the year and have gratitude for many things, not least of all that my husband is still here with me despite his diagnosis of cancer, a failed pacemaker replacement, potentially fatal heart blood clot and congestive heart failure. While he/we still have a long road to travel we are grateful for every single moment we have.
I am grateful for landing a dream job with a great company at just the right time and working for the best leader I have had in years.
I am grateful for genuine friends that truly care about me/us.
I am grateful for the challenges because they are learning lessons that have helped me grow.
These are just a few things I am grateful for; there are far to many things to mention here.
In this moment of reflection I look forward to the new year and all it has to offer and I am gratful that I can share it with you.
Happy New Year
I am grateful or today, to be here, where I am meant to be.
I am grateful for time spent with those I really care about and those that care about me.
Today I am grateful for quiet moments of self reflection and contemplation.
Being able to let go of things that are not important and have no intrinsic value to my journey through this life.
Recognizing that past actions of others towards me had nothing to do with me and was about them. That it is ok to let go and still love the person.
For continuing to believe that everything happens for a reason and it will all be ok in the end.
Today I am grateful we live in a time of advanced medicine. Because of all our advanced I still have someone who has been part of my life for the past 32 years.
I am grateful for those that dedicate themselves to caring for those who are sick. There compassion and commitment makes such a difference.
Despite all of it’s challenges, the stress, uncertainty and fear, I find gratitude in this recent experience as it is making me appreciate every moment and I am a better person. What are you grateful for today
Today I am grateful for...
This morning I was up and out before the sun was up and noticed the stars in the morning sky. Living in a large metropolitan area where there are so many lights you don't get the same view of the stars as you do living in the country. I realized that I have taken for granted the beauty and wonder of seeing the stars in the sky.
I am grateful to be able to see the sunrise this morning. The time before the sun actually appears from the horizon as the night sky is giving way turning from black to shades of purple, burgundy and blush and organge. The opportunity to experience the new day and all it's potential.
I am grateful to be able to breath fresh morning air. The air smells different in the morning especially this time of year. It is cool and crisp without being cold, refreshing in a a way that wakes you up. I was reminded of when I was a kid and how I would get up early in the morning so eager to get outside to play and explore the world.
