Today, I am thankful for my health.

This is Post #1 for the Thanksgiving Post Challenge here on Activerain.

Today, I am thankful for my health and the health of my loved ones.

I bring this up because recently two girlfriends of mine have lost their husbands after lengthy illnesses. And my heart goes out to them, both when they went through months of being primary caregivers and then being left alone to deal with life without their mate.

Watching close friends go through this made me realize that life can change in an instant, and to take advantage of all the good things around us. Not to take it for granted.

Here's an example:

I tend to be very focused on work and often don't participate in activities that could be fun.

Happily, I have several friends who don't take no for an answer when I say I'm too busy to attend some of the functions around town. And what was the outcome?

This "networking" has been very good for business! Go figure...

So I am "thankful" on this 12th day of November.

Always saying I love you whenever the moment arrives, and not going to bed angry...two of our "unwritten rules" of marriage, because like you said, life can change in an instant. 

And I learned from watching a TedTalk of a young 17 year old with a rare disease that would be killing him soon, he said, when you get invited to a party, GO! I have taken that very seriously!!

Good morning, Hella... if I've learned anything in life it's that without health you have little to nothing. I, too, am always thankful for my excellent health.

I make my health my #1 priority. Without it, I'm dead and of no use to anybody, much less myself.

Beautiful cake. Damn, now I want cake. OK, it's the icing more so than the cake. Are those gorgeous flowers edible?
