True Gratitude

Thanksgiving is a wonderful reminder that we all have much to be grateful for. But this year as we go around the table, saying what we are thankful for, I think my words will be more heartfelt than usual.

You see, in recent months, I've been to the doctor many times and had numerous tests to try to determine what's been wrong with me. I won't bore you with details, but my health hadn't been quite right for several month, and the cause was a mystery. Until a few days ago when I went to see a specialist.

In my head, I always go to the darkest place, the land of doom and gloom, and diseases with no cure. But after a rather short visit with a specialist, he came up with an answer. A hereditary condition that is much more manageable than anything my pessimistic mind had envisioned. In a few weeks we should get the confirmation of his diagnosis, although he was pretty sure he was correct.

My husband and I left the office feeling on top of the world. And suddenly, I have true gratitude. I'm not sweating the small stuff. All I can hope is that the feeling lasts. Life is good. Happy Thanksgiving!
