thanksgiving blog marathon-5

Tomorrow 11-25 10 is Thanksgiving Day here in the US. Just for the sake of seeing if I can do it I decided to post a blog on each of my various sites (no not myblank) that are themed about thanksgiving and what I am thankful for. Ready? Blog number five- I am thankful for...

I am thankful for, my health.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was about to walk into an adventure of the kind I had never faced before. Part of me wanted to run and hide, while another part of me realized that there had to be a reason and to go into this with a positive attitude.

The surgery wasn't too bad, there wasn't too much pain and I was able to return to work after two days. At work they took care of me by giving me easy assignments for a while. I was given time to heal.

The radiation treatments were not the most fun I've ever had. They left me exhausted, at times barely able to take that next step. I had to give up all of my favorite junk foods because the processed sugars made the exhaustion worse.

Even as tired as I was, I loved my walks. I had to go out there and find my peace in the same places where I once played. The quiet of the woods were healing.

Here it is, nearly 2011. I am cancer free and have regained most of my energy levels.. I can even enjoy some good junk food from time to time.

so for good health, I am thankful-
