Thankful, Grateful, Blessed 

Ninth Taxol treatment in the works! Three more to go and then on to the AC. 

Nothing much to report today. Thankfully! And in the spirit of being thankful, which I am on the daily, I’ll share with you my current alphabet list. 

Remember way back, when I told you all that sometimes I play the alphabet game in my head? Well, today’s genre is gratitude and things that make me happy. 🤗 Note- this list is NOT the end all, be all. Just the things that popped into my head while trying to pass the time during chemo. And because it’s my game, I make the rules. You’ll see what I mean when we get to X 😁

Did any of you watch This Is Us last night? Man I love that show! William’s speech about appreciating the tiny beautiful moments really hit me, gave me the chills. So real and relevant. 

You don’t need me to remind you, especially during this season, but I’ll say it anyway. Always remember to be thankful; say it out loud, write it down, or just say it in your head. Express gratitude even for the little things- for those, sometimes, really are the big things. 

Each night, as I close my eyes, I give thanks for the wonderful things in my life. Try it out. It feels nice. 

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! And if you feel like putting it out there, tell me- What are you grateful for? 🍁
