Thankful in March 2012
March 4 – 10:
This week I’m thinking about how thankful I am for pretty good health. I went for my follow-up at the doctor’s office and all that’s really wrong with me is vitamin d deficiency. There are so many other things that could be wrong, so many other diagnosis for fatigue, and I’m fortunate that it’s not something worse. I was talking to my Aunt Carine about how she’s coming along, and how she’s better than she was. I said that when you start feeling better, you can forget so quickly what the worst felt like. When you were at your worst, you would have been mighty happy to feel like you do today. But you forget what the worst felt like and so today, though so much better, is still a “bad day”. It’s all relative.
I’m so thankful for my general good health. I may not be in the best shape ever, but I can walk and talk and I have hands to grasp yours in, and arms to hug you with. I have a mind like a steel sieve, so sometimes that organ fails me, too. But I know who I am and it works pretty okay most of the time. All in all, I’m a pretty fortunate person.

I’m experiencing a kind of this and that week this week. When I think about what I’m thankful for, I feel like it’s just a lightness inside me. I’m thankful to be alive. I’m thankful for the quickly approaching spring (or is it summer, because it’s already in the 70’s this week). I’m thankful for my family and friends and the opportunities that I’ve had to spend with family this week. My body has had a couple of particularly hard days this week, but there is a light at the end of that tunnel, and I need only be patient and diligent with administering the remedy.
Basically, I’m just feeling like I am fortunate to have this life. I have this blog and a decent car. I have a house to live in and my bills are paid. I have a loving little dog to come home to every day and nourishing food to eat. There are people in the world who care for me, who love me, who even like me.
Thank you, God, for making me me and not anyone else. I’m not perfect, and neither is my life, but the possibilities are simply endless.

I had a great week, with so many things to be thankful for. I’m thankful that my sister and her family love their new house. I’m thankful for the photography class I started this week. I’m so thankful for my dear little nieces.
And I’m super thankful that cutting off all my hair was not the biggest hair mistake I’ve ever made!
March 25 – 31:
I’ve really felt thankful this week that things were going so well with the financial planning and the healthy eating resolutions. Things are starting to go so smoothly. I felt positive and in control, I feel confident about the next month, that I could be at about 95% healthy eating. I’m thankful that I am accomplishing my goals, that I have savings in the bank and am developing more financial responsibility, and that I feel healthy!
