    Thanksgiving is coming up next week.

    Instead of debating today, let's take a moment and list what we're thankful for this year.

    Who's going first?

    am Thankful for the People at Providence Hospital for saving my life when I have a bad Asthma Attack and became unconscious due to a lack of oxygen. So they Intubated me and put me on the Ventilator. I am thankful to God Almighty that he put the Doctors in place to help me Live. I am thankful for my Beautiful Kids who I raise to have a strong voice with much Respect. They were my voice when I could not speak while I was in the Hospital. I am thankful for my Daughter that she turned out so good and very responsible and determine. She's a good wife and mother, and older sister...I am thankful that I am here today to be able to post this.....BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE....Happy Holiday...

    I am thankful for my husband of 43 years hanging in there with me as I deal with chronic pain. Our 3 grown children have been very supportive and our adorable 3 granddaughters brighten up my life. I was adopted 65 years ago in Illinois and last Nov. the state which had our birth certificates sealed, made them available to us. I have made contact with a 1/2 niece who told me my Motherr died in 1980 and 4 of my 5 siblings are deceased. The surviving sister at age 82 has Alzheimer's. My neice sent me a 106 page book my Mother and her siblings wrote with the history of the family beginning with their living in Scottland. This is very priceless to me and I know how difficult it was for my Mother to make that decision, but with being a widow and 38 years old with 5 children, she made the right choice. I had a wonderful life with a loving family so I am very fortunate having had two Mothers. I know all of us will find many things to be thankful for and we will realize how lucky we are in spite of all the pain we are dealing with. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
