Today I am thankful for all of the Veteran’s and people who are currently serving our country. Thank you for being the 1% of the population that makes so many sacrifices for the other 99%. A
September was the month I would be starting my 6th year of teaching. August was the month Brad and I were supposed to start trying to have a family. July was the month we were supposed to go to Gun Lake with friends. June was the month I would get to see my favorite band, Dave Mathews Band in concert. None of these things happened.
If the last year has taught me anything, it has taught me that life throws curve balls that are often beyond my control. This has been a very hard lesson for me to learn; one that is extremely hard to accept for a type A, control freak like myself. I have also learned that putting timelines on life doesn’t always work out as well.
Today I am thankful for good health insurance to allow me to receive the care I need.
FYI-I did NOT write the following piece. I know what you are thinking, she just started this blog and is already ripping off other people’s writing A friend of mine had posted this on her Facebook a while back and it really struck a chord with me. I read through it a couple of times and so much about it rang so true. And as I debated whether or not to start this whole blogging thing, I kept thinking about this piece. It played into a lot of my decision in going ahead with blogging, believing that it is not weak to be REAL. So thank you Dan Pearce for helping to open MY eyes about the disease called Perfection.
