In the grand scheme of things, I didn't know them particularly well. They started coming to our office shortly after I started working there, so we were basically new together. They'd both been in for a lot of treatment over the past few years, and dealt primarily with me for all the fun insurance, financial, and scheduling issues . . . I knew them as well as a dental office manager can !!! But I teared up when I heard about her passing, and it was hard to see this broken-hearted husband at the funeral home tonite.
It just left me feeling so thankful for life . . . . for my life. For all the small things that I take for granted every day . . . . . my health, my senses, my family, my husband, my ability to work, my salvation, my furry boys, my home . . . . the list can go on forever, because I have so much to be thankful for. So easily I become restless and frustrated with my life, and with issues that seem enormous . . . . job satisfaction, fertility issues, even my appearance and decorating my home !!! But it doesn't matter. I have the gift of life, and life eternal, and I should be living daily in celebration and with thanksgiving.
Happy Monday !
Hoping that you, too, are giving thanks today for the
beautiful life we've been given !
