Gratitude

This Sparked Me!

Remembering to be grateful for what I do have and focusing on that. When I had my double mastectomy this year I was grateful for a loving and supportive family, a good job, health benefits and a skilled and caring plastic surgeon. I was grateful that I didn't need chemo. I don't play "Pollyanna" and yet the truth is that there is always something good that comes from even the most challenging situation - even if it is the realization that you had the strength to get through it.

    I too believe, things happen for a reason. My family and I are probably healthier than ever since my Breast Cancer in 2005. We us totally organic personal items and eat the best we can. I think it makes you a stronger person as well - being able to endure, seem to give you intestinal fortitude!

    I believe that everything happens for a reason. The hard times that we endure help us to become stronger. It is also true for our loved ones when they see us going through a hard time. They learn how to deal with things. Best wishes to you and keep up the great attitude.

    This is fantastic. God is surely with you.

    Someday what seems 'Terrible' right now may turn into the Best thing that ever happened to us.
