30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 7

Today I am thankful for my overall good health. I may have a few extra pounds on, be a little creakier than I was last year, and have one extra scar healing from yet another little bit of skin cancer.

But…I am able to walk several miles without batting an eyelash after a long day’s work, several times a week. I’m able to flex my body into pigeon, and double pigeon, not to mention downward dog. I can still run when I’m well-rested.  And of all the skin cancers, I have the easiest kind to remove.

For all of those things, I am grateful.

By Joy

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. Me too! I have an ankle injury that has taken a couple months to get over, but it is really getting better now. I’m thankful for my overall good health, and that of my husband and sons, too. I feel blessed.

  2. Hi Joy, Gratefulness really is so important, isn’t it? I know that sometimes it’s easy to focus on the thinks we can’t do rather than what we can. 30 Days of Thanks is a fabulous idea.
    Great job on the walking!
