Things I am thankful for

Thursday, November 28, 2013

I am thankful to be alive. This is my first Thanksgiving as a amputee. Remembering how close I was to dieing last June, it is a very small price to pay. I am very thankful for having a great doctor and physical therapist. I am thankful for my spark family that has helped in ways you can't imagine. I am thankful for a great wife, who has stuck with me thru thick and thin these 43 years. But, most of all I am thankful for God who has brought me thru all of this and taught me a new respect for life.

    What a positive blog. It is wonderful to know that you are still sparking and still being positive despite your challenges.
    It is true that we can only see rainbows after the rain.

    Keep on sparking.
