Thankful Thursday: Remembering to Live!

It sure is tricky being thankful when things just aren't cool.

I struggle to see every morning. Making the school lunches in my "pirate feathersword" get up. One eye patched so that I may negotiate the kitchen effectively. Ridiculous really, but if I don't my vision is a swimming mess of multiple images. Bloody, brain, bloody tumour, grrrrrr.

Even the Bougainvillea growing on my deck looks like it's worthy of thanks. Beautiful!

But it was for his very reason I started doing Thankful Thursdays. I needed to be reminded, even on the worst days and weeks. I AM NOT DEAD YET.

For this.......... I am REALLY thankful :-)

And while I'm still kicking, breathing and walking into things, there is hope. Plenty of it.

So today is purely a reminder to oneself. Come on Jaz. You aint dead yet. Still plenty of stuff to achieve. Even if it's slightly modified, altered or impaired. Life still needs to be lived.

I needed this reminder today.

Maybe you need it too.

Jaz xx

  6. Jaz, if I wake up in the morning then to me it's a Good Day and I'm thankful. I don't have to contend with all the crap that you have to endure because I can see and I can get around. I'm fortunate that I can live with the problems the cancer caused me although there have been times...(and there still are days...). But it was you who made me take stock each week and remind myself that I am thankful. So this comment is to say a big THANK YOU to you for your Thankful Thursdays; to say how much I admire you and your attitude; and to wish with every fibre in my body for your full recovery. Because you're worth it!

  7. Loving that you share your journey with us, both the good and the bad. Your honesty and courage are such an inspiration to me in my own life. xx

  8. Thank you for the reminder. So much to be thankful for. xxx
