not so tongue in cheek being thankful

Dear All,

As Thanksgiving approaches I am truly grateful to all the wonderful people in my life. 

Not just my friends, family (which includes my sweet and oh so amazing  man), but I am thankful and grateful to all of you out there whom I have not met who have been part of this journey thus far.  Whether you are just a reader of my sometimes seemingly endless streaming flows of consciousness or know me in real-time, I am appreciative of your support, love, cheering on, and occasional kicks in the ass.

Having popped a breast cancer diagnosis on April 28th, to being at this moment in time cancer free (and may I stay that way forever bless God, knock on wood) , as well as being your 1 6/8 boobed scribe, I count myself the most fortunate of women.

This experience has taught me really have faith in myself and to have courage to move forward and try new things and to go for what I want.  When you are faced with not having life, it is almost indescribable what it does for your personal resolve all in all.

Suffice it to say I will have a lot to be thankful for this coming Thanksgiving Day and you all will be in my thoughts.

I will end this brief post with a quote from Marcel Proust:

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
