Things I'm Thankful For

This Thanksgiving was one of particular importance. I have so much to be thankful for right now. So, so much. Something you might want to know before reading my list, though, is that I had yet another surgery. Yes––less than two weeks ago. To remove more abnormal tissue––this time on my right kidney.

Things I'm Thankful For
  • Not having cancer
  • Being able to perform basic bodily funtions
    • Urinating on my own
    • Having a bowel movement post-surgery
  • Nurses who know how to get a catheter in on the first try
  • Wonderful doctors!
  • Parents who come to visit
  • A mom who makes meals when I'm recovering
  • Medical glue
  • Peeling medical glue off!
  • Leggings!
  • Friends who send food!
  • Friends who make delicious butternut squash soup
  • Nieces and nephews who decorate my Christmas tree for me
  • Hot chocolate
  • Space heaters
  • Binding cloths
  • Lightly salted Lays potato chips
  • An understanding and compassionate manager
  • Forgiveness
  • Prayer
  • Stacks of magazines
  • Snow
  • Christmas lights
  • Pictures on Hangouts
  • Fuzzy blankets
  • Boots that don't require tying the shoelaces
  • A heavy winter coat
  • Flowers!

And everything in between.
