As the Holidays are coming into full swing it brings with them a wave of emotions for me. This is where the depths of my Chronic Illness showed it’s ugly face and forced my plans and priorities to take a different turn.
Last Thanksgiving was the first really bad day I had with my disease, and for the first time in my life, I was unable eat a bite of food during our Thanksgiving meal.
This year, although things are far from perfect and ever evolving for me, I am beyond thankful to be able to eat and have a full stomach!
I am thankful to be surrounded by family who give me so much love and support!
I am thankful for the doctors I have access to and are helping me figure this out!
My hope is that this Thanksgiving will be a day that reminds us to give thanks, but instead of showing gratitude for one day, it is carried into every day moving forward!
Let’s Be grateful for the little things and worry less about the big things in life. Even the smallest change in our perspective can make a world of a difference in the way we see ourselves and the people around us!
This Thanksgiving, let’s wrap our arms around the ones we love and don’t let go! Tell them how much we love them, and truly mean it! Make plans with them, and actually follow through because in the blink of an eye, our whole lives could change!
They say the healthy are the ones who wear the crown, but only the sick can see it. Today choose to see your crown and don’t forget to polish it. If you don’t have one now, my wish is for you to be wearing a bright and shiny crown real soon!
Happy Thanksgiving From Our Family To Yours!
