Thanksgiving Post Challenge Day 1 – Thankful for my Life

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with KD Realty - 408.972.1822 CA BRE#01366594

My gosh have I  been busy.  I missed my own 2 Million Points Party in the Rain on Sunday.  I have yet to write my post about my 2 Million Point Journey. I hope to get that that this week.  

When I saw that Debbie Reynolds (the Real Debbie Reynolds) is hosting a 10 Day Thanksgiving Post Challenge, I just had to stop and write my Day 1 Post. I just feel that starting from the beginning would be a great place.

I Am Thankful for my Life

So far, its been an amazing journey. The older I get the more I learn and grow spiritually.  My spiritual growth helps me to understand life more - understand life better.  I don't suppose I will ever figure it all out completely yet I do have fun attempting to piece it all together. 

I am thankful to be 4 years cancer free and counting.  

If I did not have my life to be thankful for then I would not be here to finish the Thanksgiving Post Challenge.

Four years cancer free is something to be grateful for, Kathleen!  I think the older we get the more we realize we are part of everything else.  There's a very spiritual component to that!

First of all, congrats on hitting the two million point club.  

Once you've stared down cancer and won, you definitely have a unique perspective on health.

I am thankful for your life too! I remember reading your story a couple of years ago and it prompted me to go get a mamogram.  The first one I had was when I was 65 years old.  There is no cancer in my immediate family, and I am thankful for that.  My test was clear, but knowing, makes a lot of difference.
