Thankful Thursday. This is a tough one.
It’s Thankful Thursday again. I am not sure where to start this week. Life in general has been pretty trying for me lately. I have had mental trials, monetary trials and now physical trials.
I will start by saying I am thankful just to be alive. Without going into detail I have a number of medical problems at the moment but at least I am alive. Enough about that.
My mother isn’t doing well but at least she is hanging on. I have a friend who’s mother is 20 years younger and she isn’t doing well either. The mother that is. And my mother’s problems are minor compared to her mother’s problems. I am thankful that she is 82 and still around.
Oh I just realized that my eye is feeling better. I know I said I wouldn’t dwell on my medical problems but my eye got infected today for some reason. I just put drops in it and it is feeling better now. I am thankful for modern medicine.
I am thankful that I avoided an accident the other day. This crazy diver was texting in heavy traffic and she almost slammed into me. After that she quit texting though but soon I noticed that she was scratching off instant lottery tickets while driving. Some people amaze me.
I am thankful for little signs of hope. The other day while I was driving home, my son noticed that there was a huge cross in the sky made of clouds. He tried to get a photo of it but failed. All I can say was that it was amazing. I told him it was a sign and he asked if I was serious. I just said maybe it is, who knows.
Have a great Thankful Thursday,
