Thankful to Just Be Here and Healthy

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

It is the season to give thanks and for me it starts with the reality of just being here and healthy.  Back in the early 1980's, I was faced with a decision regarding my health that could have left me completely incapacitated or even worse. 

I was fortunate to have excellent doctors and came through my travails a different person and can honestly say it changed my life focus.

Thankful to Just Be Here and Healthy

I made decisions that no one in their early 30's should have to make, which resulted in a complete change in lifestyle, work prospects, and even a change in my marital status.

I became more appreciative of the things I have around me, family, friends, and activities that will not only make me a happier person but also allow me to be healthier.


I time I connected with a person that I felt I could share life with and we just celebrated our 22 wedding anniversary.

We work our jobs and try to enjoy the things around us, but without our health, no amount of money can allow us to live a comfortable and happy life.

Good evening Ed Silva , The trouble with our lives, is that we don't sit up and take notice until something like your experience happens and for some, it's too late.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Ed. 

    I also faced a life or death health incident in the 1980's.  By the grace of God, I pulled through... and life took on a whole new meaning!
