November Gratefulness Challenge

Choosing to be Grateful: Day 1


There was a surprise in the pathology report. Endometrial Cancer.

Even though they didn’t know it was there, the doctors believe they got it all in my original surgery. For this I am grateful, but as you can imagine, this news has given me a lot to think about.

As we move into November, I want to take this opportunity to choose to be grateful. To live with my eyes, ears, and heart set to find the good things in each day. Will you join me?

For the next 30 days, will you answer one question a day with me?

DAY 1: When you think about HEALTH, your own or a friend or family member’s, what are you grateful for?

I am grateful for the wisdom God has given the medical community so that they can offer hope, as well as for all the medical staff who have worked on me, walked with me, and continue to care for me. Specifically, I am thankful for the nurse who took my hand as I was falling asleep and for my anesthesiologist who came and held my hand as I was waking up. Small gestures, huge impact. 

Dear reader, I’d love your company in this.

Leave your comment below and let us remind ourselves of the good that we each encounter every day.

Bonus Challenge: What action could you take that would offer the world something beautiful out of this grateful moment you have found?

I am going to send a thank you note to the doctors that have cared for me. Handwritten, not just a google review. 🙂

May you be blessed in the remembering,

  1. I am grateful that I am able to get up each morning and care for myself. I have my health, I may be moving a little slower but I am moving.
