What we all are so thankful for

The subject of this post may sound crazy when its presented to people that are suffering from spinal problems one type or another. I know that sometimes I get so wrapped up in spinal situations, that I tend to forget how many other problems are out there and how many other people are having rough times.

I wanted to start this tread just so that others here could also say why they are so thankful.

I am thankful for:

- A loving and supporting wife, who without her, I could never have endured half the things I have
- A loving and supporting family, my children have been with me, at my side the entire time.
- Understanding friends, who know when to come and know when to go.
- The roof over our heads and food on our table, so many others may not have either
- To live in a world where we can say whats wrong and what is right
- To the members of Spine-Health, who have given me a bigger purpose than just logging on.

I do so love and enjoy life and I will live each day to the best that I am capable of doing.

  • :) Ron, this is the time to turn our thoughts to those things that make life richer and more fullfilling. >:D< like a great husband of 28 years by my side and a faithful, four legged friend named Sirius. :X i have a warm bed everynight to lay claim to. I) my computor which opens up the world to me. i have been led to SH, where i have met wonderful, cyber-friends and feel of some value. i am thankful for the ready heart God has given me and an open mind that still wants to learn and be useful. there is of course so much more and this page isn't that long. i hope everyone can look inside, step away from the pain for a few moments, and find an endless amount of things to be grateful for. Jenny :)

  • I am thankful for each and every moment that I spend on this side of the ground. I am thankful for each breath that I take. I am thankful for my sweet intelligent daughter. I am thankful for my selfless husband. I am thankful for my family, just as they are. I am thankful for my many and varied friends. I am thankful for my three cats, as needy and irritating as they sometimes are. I am thankful for the roof over my head, the food on my table, and the bed under bones. I am thankful for my view out the plateglass window in my living room while I recover. Where I have witnessed neighbors and moon light alike. I am thankful for every nano second that I am painfree. I am thankful for Veet, and Mara to apply it! :) I am thankful for my squishy pillow, for garlic, for the printed word. I am thankful for advanced technology. I am thankful for simple mechanics, such as the milk carton that gets my socks on. I am thankful for hot chocolate with cinnamon, whipped cream, and sprinkles. I am thankful for deep thought and lighthearted conversation. I am thankful for healthy coping mechanisms. I am thankful for patience and the wisdom to use it.

    One Love,
