Remembering to be Thankful

Saturday, August 05, 2017

Today I tried to write a blog 3 times, and it was just me fussing about my woes, so I thought, why bother, no one wants to read that, not even me! Then I was reminded by Sunny's blog that I need to look for the Joys in life. And that brought me to being thankful.

I am thankful for a husband who cares enough about me to take the time to worry over me, get me to take care of myself and take care of me too. I am very blessed in the husband department. God gave me an amazing gift when he put the two of us together. emoticon

I am thankful for a wonderful BFF, the miles and years have not brought us further apart, I can still call her up and it's like we just talked, we can go on for hours if we are not careful, LOL. She is truly a blessing in my life.

I am thankful for two wonderful girls. I don't think they know how awesome they are, they behave so well, and are so well mannered. I am blessed they are doing well their first few days of school, makes me worry less about them.

I am thankful for SP and all my wonderful friends on here. I haven't been getting on as much, I've been so... worn out, but you guys are great and I'm blessed to know you.

I'm thankful for our little dog Pickles. I've gotten to know him better since training him. I already knew he was a fun quirky thing, but now I see his fun loving and caring personality. He actually has been sleeping with me since all this mess started with my PTSD and last night was waiting on bean bag for me, LOL. If I stick to the training of what to do and how, he will catch on quick, he wants to please, he just doesn't know how.

I am still having a bad time with PTSD flashbacks, but I am thankful that I'm in such a secure, loving environment to handle it. I have the A-Team when it comes to my care, I have an awesome husband for support, caring and knowledgeable therapist for help, and my new psych-doc we shall have to wait and see, but he seemed to know his stuff.

I have an awesome doctor and NP team, I may have cough for so long but as soon as I went to them with it they sent me for a chest x-ray and a referral to I don't know who but it sounded like BB, LOL, yes I trust my doc that much. She says she is going to send me to doctor BB and I'm like, okay then! LOL.

I'm thankful that I finally went and got new glasses. It's been 3 years since I've been to an optometrist and I was due for my diabetic check up. I got some awesome new glasses on the way and will have them next week, yay!

Most of all, I am thankful for a loving God who would care for me so much to put all these things in my life. I am truly thankful. I may have gone through a lot in my life, but I have been given a lot too. emoticon

    Always remember your blessings, there's just so many. I am so relieved the girls are adjusting to school so far. What a weight lifted. I agree - God has placed wonderful men in our lives - my hubby is amazing.

    I am in 100% agreement about being in a safe, secure place to handle your PTSD. When I was dealing with my past, flashbacks and such, my counselor told me that it was because I was in such a safe place in my marriage, and life basically, that God allowed those memories to come back since I had so much support to see me through. I will always be grateful for that wisdom. God is at work!! I'll be praying extra prayers for you!
