What am I Thankful For

Okay - so on Thanksgiving Becky told me she did her list of what she's thankful for (I have no idea what she wrote) but figured I'd try to do one. To be honest though, with the big "C" hanging over my head, and feeling a bit sorry for myself, it's hard for to do this but I thought I'd give it a try.

  • I'm thankful for my family and friends who have been so incredibly supportive through this.
  • I'm thankful that other than the "C" I'm in pretty darn good health.
  • I'm thankful that the rest of my family is in good health.
  • I'm thankful everyone is coming over today.
  • I'm thankful that I had a great trip to Italy.
  • I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head.
  • I'm thankful I have good food to eat and good wine and beer to drink!
  • I'm thankful for the Macy's parade (and that it's not windy so we should get balloons today).
  • I'm thankful that the girls didn't freak out when we cancelled our trip to Disney World in January to see Chris run the Goofy challenge.
  • I'm thankful Anna is coming back to clean my house on Monday.
  • I'm thankful Fala is feeling better (she has brittle nails, broke one, and her paw got infected. She's in one of those silly cones now but she slept better last night and the meds seem to be working).
  • I'm thankful Dad got me a banana chocolate chip muffin for breakfast.
  • I will be thankful as soon as Chris stops reading the paper behind me, and makes another pot of decaf.
  • I'm thankful Mom has stayed with me through my surgeries.
  • I'm thankful we saw a bald eagle flying yesterday - never saw one out of captivity; they're beautiful.
  • I'm thankful for my doctors and their quick action and their thoughtful oversight.
  • I'm thankful we're decorating the house this weekend. It will be good to have some holiday cheer.
  • I'm thankful we're still planning a trip to Hawaii in June
  • I'm thankful the girls aren't fighting.
. . . I'm thankful to get into bed now. :)

Laura (Chachalaca @ Slowtrav):

Happy Thanksgiving! You did up a great list! I am thankful that you are sharing your journey. You are brave.


Let me add some:

I am thankful for good friends.
I am thankful for early detection!
I am thankful for the snow that is up here in Rochester is not back home.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!


An inspiring post, Kim. I have so much to be thankful for, but waste far too much time dwelling on what I don't have, rather than focusing on what I do have!
Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful that you talked me into starting a blog.

I'm thankful that I could not get all the way back to Hawaii in a day...which led me to meeting you in person.

AND I'm thankful that you are coming to Hawaii next June! Do you know what part of June yet?

Wendy Ashworth:

I am thankful that you no longer have breast cancer Kim and that your forthcoming treatments are going to help keep things that way.
5 years on from my own diagnosis I am very thankful to still be alive and to have had slowtravellers to help me along during my treatment.

Happy thanksgiving, blog buddy! Hope you have a nice and restful weekend. It must be a little hard to be thankful right now so I am impressed with your list!

Lovely list, Miss Kim...
You have your priorities in the right order, girl!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your wonderful family!

I am also thankful that you are having good treatment, and sharing your story with us!
