Pause for a few moments and allow your soul to be thankful. It doesn't matter what you are thankful for at this moment, just being thankful is powerful and grounding.
I've had some very sad things happen to some people I care about already this week. A dear and sweet friend of mine lost her sister to cancer early Monday morning. She had the same kind of cancer I did. May she rest in the God's arms of peace and love. My own sister's surgery was cancelled at the last minute on Monday morning. It was incredibly frustrating and sad for her. My brother-in-law's Godmother passed away today. One of my Survivor-Sisters lost her health insurance in the midst of her war against cancer. This afternoon a friend of my sister lost his mother in a car accident.
I've been praying for peace, comfort, acceptance, Love and Light for everyone touched by each of these sad events. Please send your Love and Light, too.
Through my sadness and tears I see more and more reasons to be thankful. I'm thankful for the ability to improve my health, for the power of laughter, the cleansing release of crying, the ability to lighten the sadness of others, and Loving Energy that connects us. I'm thankful to be able to lessen the sadness of others. I'm thankful that everything, even sad things, happen for a reason. I'm thankful that I don't have to know or understand that reason now, or ever. I can trust and believe. I'm thankful that this blog is reaching out to Survivors and showing them that they're not alone. I'm thankful for Twitter which led me to The Day I Found Out site. I'm thankful for the strength and opportunity to share my 'day I found out' stories with the world. (It's a work in progress, and I promise to post the video here too. Soon.)
My sister, Heidi, had some wise words that resonated deeply inside my being today. She said, "Thank you
