Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone! I hope that everyone has a wonderful day with their families eating lots of food, laughing and making memories. Hopefully everyone remembers the name of the day and thinks about everything in their life to be thankful for. I know I will. Three years ago I was still in a rehabilitation hospital, on a ventilator, had a trach, countless other issues and on top of that, in pain and so heavily medicated that I completely missed the holiday. People came to visit me which I did not remember the next day. Thank God for the progress that he has allowed me to make since then. I’m thankful for so many things that I cannot begin to even express my gratitude. I would be no one and who knows where I would be without my family, their love and support, constant giving and complete selflessness. They, along with God, have allowed me to become a person I am today. Although it’s not the same person as four years ago, that no longer matters. From this point we go forward, grow as the new person I am and be thankful for the opportunities I have been given.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Did not take your days for granted.
