To say the least, this has been a difficult year. It started off with a lumpectomy and, oh joy, it turned out to be benign! I am so thankful.
Then my mother passed away. She had very advanced Alzheimer's disease and she went peacefully after what we found out later, must have been a very painful existence. I am thankful she is no longer in pain and is at peace. We nearly lost my dad right after that and today he really is pretty good. Again, so thankful I still have him.
Yes, my home was somewhat flooded with the water tank disaster but now I'm thankful that I got rid of so much stuff I really didn't need and I gave so much to people who had nothing. I have a roof over my head, heat in my home, two healthy kids and a job. I'm thankful for all of that.
This thanksgiving I am over 30 lbs less than I was at last thanksgiving. Wow, just saying that is pretty shocking. I did it. I know I still have 10 more to go and it looks like I will be slow in losing it but for now, I'm so thankful I feel good, I look pretty good and I will have lots of friends and family over for the holiday.
All in all, I'm pretty blessed and very thankful.
Oh, and I met a great guy and we are just maybe starting off a new, possibly great relationship. Who knows what the next year will bring. As bad as this past one was, it was still really pretty good.
