I went and visited my ex today. She is doing well and she appreciated my visit. We had a nice little chat together.
Somehow the conversation made its way to my pancreas surgery. The cyst was discovered back in January when I had pain from kidney stones and they took a scan. On that day I was not even certain I would live to see this Thanksgiving as pancreatic cancer is quite deadly and rather fast-moving. But here I am, grateful for God’s blessings.
Sadly I lost my grandmother this year. But my mother and sister are still doing well. I was able to visit them both two weeks ago when the weather was good for traveling. I’m grateful for the opportunity I had to go see them once more before the year was out.
As I sit here at my computer desk I realize I have much to be thankful for. In many ways it was a challenging year. But I know there are many who are worse off than I am, including those who have gone though Mother Nature’s fury this year. Floods and typhoons have struck… and yet here I am, high and dry with a roof over my head and food in my belly.
So this year Thanksgiving is kind of special to me. And I hope you can find a way to make it special for you as well. Thanks for stopping by. Take care and God bless…
