November Begins My Month of Thankfulness

By Donna Fernandez · November 9, 2018.

I generally begin November by listing, day by day, that for which I am grateful. Some days, the only thing that really strikes me is that I got up that morning or that the sun is shining. Other days, I have a long list of things for which I am thankful.

My reasons to be grateful
Some people think I am crazy when I begin to list the reasons why I am grateful for my current situation. It isn’t that I would not rather have never had cancer. No one is foolish enough to wish cancer on themselves or anyone else.

But, I do have it. And, rather than looking at the negatives of being diagnosed with cancer, I choose to look at what positives have come out of my having the disease.

Please, don’t send the white coats after me! I realize I have a deadly disease, from which I am likely to never recover. Nevertheless, let’s spend a few minutes looking at the positives. After you read my list, let us know if there are any with which you agree or that you can add. Read more.
