Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

NORMAL!

I don’t think I posted yesterday. I guess that’s what happens when you’re having too much fun!

My cousin and her husband stopped over last evening for a glass of wine – we always have so much fun with them. And they are leaving tomorrow for a trip down south so it was good to see them. We are planning on having a shared garden this summer – we have the land and they have a tiny postage stamp sized yard. It will be fun, especially since he loves to cook and we will get to try new things. Aw, who am I kidding? I hate most vegetables. But I can keep the wine poured while everyone is busy gardening.

Today, though, I am very thankful for being NORMAL! First time in my life I think that I have been considered normal. Yesterday was my stress test. It took way longer than I expected it to take. They had to shoot dye through me and then I had to sit for 45 minutes – then lots of pictures of my heart. Then I got to get on the treadmill. That was interesting because the doctor had trouble getting my heart rate up. I’m definitely out of shape and my legs felt like jelly, but my heart is strong! But then more dye and more pictures so I didn’t get the results until today. And they said I’m NORMAL! What a relief to know that all my years of eating badly haven’t permanently damaged me.

And my blog blast began today with another blast next week for my new book. It’s always exciting to see your name on the cover of a book.

Thanksgiving Project

I think many of us take good health for granted. I know that I certainly do. But I’m very fortunate to be healthy. I rarely get sick. I think that is one reason this, whatever it is has knocked me down repeatedly.

I’m tired of not feeling like myself. I’m tired of being tired. I want to remember how it feels to feel good and normal again. I will not take it for granted. I’m on day 13. Surely day 14 and I will be back to normal.

Today I’m thankful for the good health I normally enjoy
