Gratitude For What You Gave

I’ve been on medical leave since mid November. Because of my surgery I was dependent on a lot of things. I’m thankful for everything everyone gave me during my hardest first three weeks.

The most important thing is everyone’s time. Time to me is very valuable. My mom, sisters and even my niece and nephew spent time catering to my needs. Then I have the friends and family that took time out of their schedules to visit me. That warmed my heart each time.

Even though their time was the most precious gift for me to be thankful for, there are other things as well. I’m thankful for the food that was bought and/or cooked. That was great since I couldn’t stand that long to do it myself. I’m also thankful for the money and gifts I received as well. Everything was so thoughtful, it is still appreciated.

Being homebound and unable to do the simple things reminds you to be thankful each and every day.
