Visual Reminders For Thankful Thursday and Beyond

I cannot believe how long it’s been since I’ve written a “Thankful Thursday” post. It has been far too long. So, what’s my excuse you ask? Hmm, no good excuse other than I’ve been struggling {continually} with issues related to my MonSter {aka Multiple Sclerosis}. I’ve also been doing my best to make sure my father is clean, fed, and happy {he has COPD & emphysema and is oxygen dependent}. Despite these two struggles, I am thankful to wake up each day because it means my job or mission here on Earth isn’t quite done. Earth.

Right now, I’m especially thankful that Fall is in the air because that means cooler weather. Cooler weather usually has an odd healing effect on my body. Make no mistake, my nasty MS symptoms don’t go away, they are just easier to deal with. Since Fall is fast approaching, that means the holidays are right around the corner—>Halloween, Christmas, etc., Can you believe it? This year has truly flown by with a quickness like no other. One of my favorite holidays—Thanksgiving, will be here in just a few months. I love that everyone celebrates thankfulness during this time but wouldn’t it be nice if we practiced it year round? What if you had visual reminders to encourage thoughts of thankfulness more often? Would this help you? I know that I am of guilty of “forgetting” to be thankful and I certainly want to rectify that. No matter what’s going on, I’m going to take the time daily to write down one thing I am thankful for. What are you thankful for today?

I love all of these items. Which one should I get?

    I too have MS and my symptoms are always present, no matter the weather. I only like cooler weather better because I’m heavy and summer and heat make it harder for me to get around. I do have relapses at times, and have to be hospitalized. I’m always thankful when I have a good day, where I can get around and do my errands. Sometimes I have to postpone things because of having a bad MS day, but I try to do what I can even then. I’m mostly thankful I can still walk alright, just not distances, and that my dr. signed a disability paper so I could get a handicapped parking placard.
