Today I am thankful for the technology I have that keeps me connected, brings me joy, and gives me an occasional escape. I am thankful for my computer. It allows me to research so many topics including options for the best treatment plan. It allows me to talk to family and friends through email and Facebook.
Today I am thankful for the Herner family. They have been family since I was born. I am thankful for all of the vacations we have spent together, all of the Sunday night dinners we have had, all of the “porch sitting” times we spent together in the summer, all of the Christmas Eves we have celebrated together, I could go on and on…
I am thankful for Sue, who is another mother to me and Doug who is another father to me. I am thankful that I can walk into their house, no matter the time, without knocking like it is my house. I am thankful to know that they would do anything for me, and all I have to do is ask.
Today I am thankful for my wheelchair, Wilemena. We have had a love-hate relationship from the beginning but I am realizing more and more that she allows me to do normal things and gives me more freedom than if I didn’t have her.
