Thankful

As I reflect on these past 3 years, or 4 years, or even 5 years....
I realize that...

Again, I"m a lot stronger than I though I could ever be.

People will continue to amaze me, both with the good and the bad.

I have a lot to be Thankful for...
and a lot to be angry about.

I'm not letting my anger rule my life.

I have a few great friends, one fantastic non-husband, and an awesome job that I love most of the time.  

There are still days when I can't believe that my life took such a U-turn, or that I'm alone.  
I always thought I would be married and raising my family...boy was I wrong.

This Thanksgiving, I'm unable to continue my tradition of going to San Antonio because I have to work. However, I may go next week, but it won't be the same.  Or I may not go at all.  

Also, I'm a bit down this week.My KAFO's were giving me little sores, and we all know what that means...I can't wear them until 
1. The sores are cleared up 
2. They're either adjusted or more padding is added to cut down on the sores.
So, this means less standing and walking, and I really don't like being stuck to the wheelchair all the time...I like to get up the little bit that I can. LOL!
And this is one area where I know the risks, and I refuse to disobey doctors orders and wear them anyway, even though I badly want to!
However, I'm still wearing my AFO's to prevent my ankles from flopping everywhere, because that is a funny sight!  

So, all in all, I have a lot to be Thankful for, and I really shouldn't complain, but there are things I miss...
Going into the store real quick!
DANCING!!! (especially Two-Steppin)
Having someone that I can come home to that is happy to see me.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  And I promise to write more often.
