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.
