thankful thursday

(Originally published by Nattie on May 24, 2007)
I know people think I’m crazy. I have cancer, but I have oodles of things to be thankful for.
1. My mom is here doing all my laundry. lol
We joke that I got cancer so I wouldn’t have to do housework. It is all part of my evil plan. bwahahahaha
2. I’ve got great friends and family. Really. I can’t describe the outpouring of love and help I’ve gotten from them.
3. I have cute new fuzzy flip flops to wear around the house.
4. I have new pjs to wear post op.
5. I can move my laptop and sit in my comfy chair so I can be online a little longer.
6. My ipod. Last night I couldn’t sleep so I listened to an audio book.
7. Even though I can’t handle any “hardy” reading right now…I have oodles of “friends” (i.e. old books) that I can reread.
8. I am allowed to eat as much ice cream as I want. Never mind that I can only eat half a cup. I can eat ice cream whenever I want. The only time I was allowed to do that before was when I had my tonsils out.
9. When people come visit and ask what I want I can say, “Ice cream” and not feel guilty.
10. The most important thing of all is that God is by my side through this all. I don’t know how people handle tragedy without their Heavenly Father. I know I couldn’t and for this I am very thankful.

You brought tears to my eyes. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Have a scoop ice cream for me, will you?

Sorry to hear that you’re sick. Last time I checked in, I know you were concerned, but it sounds now like there’s a plan in place for some surgery? I hope it goes well and that you have a quick recovery. It’s great that you’re focusing on the positives in life!

Know that people like me (the quiet and reserved ones) are praying for you, Nattie. I love your spirit, and God will see you through this.

I snuck my computer on the family vay-cay just to keep tabs on you, girl. I am glad to find you in a thankful – cheerful mood. Love you!

Miss talking about books with you at church, I got a new catalog from christian books.com and I was going I want that one and that one. Thinking of you, praying always.
