Since this is the month of gratitude and Thanksgiving, I thought that once a day I would write down something I am grateful for. We are already on the 6th of November so here are my first 6 things (in no particular order):
November 1. I am grateful for my dad and his willingness to fly us all home for Christmas! (We just got our tickets yesterday, and even our 20 month old son has his own seat. Now that is truly something to be grateful for!)
November 2. I am grateful for my health. Even though I have Polycystic Kidney Disease and a Microadenoma (a small pituitary tumor), I am still in really good health. I have these diseases, but at least not with multiple symptoms.
November 3. I am grateful for modern medicine and for how it keeps me in good health. Without it I wouldn’t have 2 beautiful and wonderful kids. I am really grateful for fertility drugs.
November 4. I am grateful for my husband and all the good laughs and talks we have together.
November 5. I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and the peace and comfort it always brings me.
November 6. And on a lighter note, I am grateful for chocolate : ) !! I especially love a good cup of hot cocoa … and being able to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a good book and a quiet house on a beautiful, Fall and rainy day! (The weather is cooperating, now I just need to do my part!)
