This year I have so much to be thankful for.
I'm very thankful for all of you that are very near and extremely dear to me. My wonderful, dear husband Tom, my family and a whole bucket load of great friends. Thank you all for your help, offers of help and just being there to listen or help out - when I allowed it! I also want to toss out a thank you to Dr Jaime Michel, for doing such a superb job with the surgery and followups. My leg is stronger every day, and I'm almost, almost cane free! Yea!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
Now, I want to send a thank you to all those people out there who do things in their normal course of the day with out getting many thanks.
I'm sitting in a Seattle Hospital as I write this. My Dad, Gordie just had bypass heart surgery yesterday. I arrived late last night and saw him briefly this morning. He's doing good, in fact was sitting up in a chair! The family is here, and we're taking shifts holding his and mom's hand. He's going to be just fine.
So, here it is Thanksgiving. I've heard people say "Happy Thanksgiving" to people. Our family, like most of you usually spend the day with family. This year, since we're not doing the usual family meal, I've decided to thank those people who don't get many thanks. So today, so far I've thanked the cashier in the cafeteria for working today so that I could get some breakfast. The lady who was cleaning up the family lounge, was doing a great job and is hoping to get to go home a few hours early. A couple of other hospital nurses and staff as well.
So go out of your way today to Thank someone who maybe doesn't get much in the course of their day.
And to all of you, Thanks for being a part of my life. You are cherished and loved!
