Thankful Thursday – What are you thankful for?


Most of the time I feel as if life really sucks. That my world is broken, but I know that I still have things to be thankful for:

  1. A roof over my head (albeit maybe not l long one as the house is gone when my 83 year old father passes)
  2. Food in my mouth (and I spent a year eating out of food pantries)
  3. My health (even though it is painful and hurts all the time I am thankful I can still walk)
  4. My family (blood relations and the friends I am making on here)
  5. Clothes to wear (even if from thrift stores)
  6. A cat to keep me company (even if she does drive me nuts always wanting to eat.)
  7. Fingers that can still type (even when painful)
  8. A mind that allows me to think (even with the brain fog and medications interrupting my thoughts)

P.S. My sugar is only 84 this morning and remembered all pills. I didn’t sleep well, took the Latuda too late.

      Nice sign and you have a lot to be thankful for. My daughter is raising her kids alone. The father’s wander in and out of their lives.

      Yes I redid the whole thing almost. I didn’t have a picture before. Thank you. I wanted it to look more friendly and professional than the old one. I am glad you like it.

    I am thankful all day long, every day, thankful for all that I have been blessed with. If there’s a storm I can stand on my porch, safe and comfortable, enjoying the storm. In the past, the rain would sweep across the entire porch driving me back inside. No more. The roof doesn’t leak anymore and there are no holes in the ceiling or walls anymore. I was able to make a room for my mother in law. I had the good fortune to be able to borrow and pay back the money to change my hole in the wall kitchen with the single dangling light and the wall coverings peeling off the walls to something Grandmom enjoyed. I am very thankful that I could make her last years as comfortable and dignified as possible. I have a wonderful, loving, caring husband. I have four cats to lower my blood pressure! And, there are books to read, a computer to enjoy, and the beauty in my back yard. Every single day I think of these things and I am very, very thankful I have been so blessed. Thinking of these things helps me handle the negatives in my life, with pain being at the top of the list, neck and neck with brain fog. lol I’m a very positive person and it helps..

      I think we all have a lot to be thankful for if we actually sit and think about it like I did before I wrote this post. I, however, am a negative person so I think I did pretty good with my list of things to be thankful for.

      We do it in one of my anxiety groups and so I thought I would try it here. I have to remind myself that there is much to be thankful for.
