- I'm grateful that what's wrong with me can be fixed.
- I'm grateful for a financial cushion which makes the expenses for this procedure possible.
- I'm grateful for the Affordable Care Act. Although insurance companies are still making a profit from human illness (which I think is wrong), my expenses for this procedure are not out of reach.
- I'm grateful for the ability – still – to clean my house, cook food, do laundry. All of these things take more time than they used to, so …
- I'm grateful for patience and willingness to work with what I have, instead of feeling frustrated about my loss of mobility.
I also have a few wishes:
- I wish everyone who is in pain would find relief.
- I wish everyone facing surgery has a successful outcome.
- I wish everyone who has a much more serious illness or condition will find comfort and peace.
I'm so lucky. Generally I dismiss people who say "it could be worse," because each person's situation is unique to them.
But … it could be worse.
Looking ahead to next weekend, my friend Vickie and I have come up with a Leap Year Photo Challenge. She did all the prompts and created the website. I did the graphics. We're a team!
If you found a camera under the Christmas tree, or if your new phone's camera is still a mystery, we invite you to join the fun!
And with that … I'm having a new kitchen faucet and garbage disposal installed today. Whatever I need to do that requires water needs to be done prior to the start of the project. So I'd better get moving!
