Attitude of Graditude


I'm grateful that Max has had his second birthday in good form.

I'm grateful for Kelly's consistent and constant love and support.

I'm grateful for the time I spent with my father.

I'm grateful for my longest friendship.

I'm grateful for the weather this morning.

I'm grateful for the trust I have in the surgeon.

I'm grateful for my mother's presence in my home and in my life.

I'm grateful for my little family.

I'm grateful for the worry dolls that I put under my pillow last night that allowed me to sleep the night before this big day.

I'm grateful for the view.

I'm grateful for the love of my Gramma and Babushka.

I'm grateful for the strength I have.

I'm grateful for my resiliance.

I'm grateful for raw and living foods and the way they make me feel.

I'm grateful for little things like the sound of Max's echo in the tunnel before the swimming pool. And the way he jumps in, fearless and goes way down and comes up with a smile on his face. I love the way he says 'helium' and I love the way he looks at neon lights.
I love the way I love him.
I'm grateful that I have this chance; the chance to take it out. Take it out of my body. Take as much as they can. Take it away. Less is better. I'll work with what's left. I'll get rid of it. But thank you, for taking this from me now.

What Peg said. I'm grateful for our meetings, planned and chance, and our conversations over the last 15 years. Good luck with the surgery. I'm very, very happy to hear that you have this option.
Thinking of you,

Surgery!Treice, thank you for forging ahead with life. Vancouver? Germany? I look forward to the recovery stories you will share.
Love you so much,

Triece, you are a superstar. I've always thought you were amazing, and I believe you have it in you to get well.

I haven't written you yet to send you my love through your ordeal, but I've thought about you a lot.

Like Soressa said, I'm looking forward to hearing your stories of recovery :).

Lots of love to you and your family.

You're in my chant every night - I tell the universe/forces that be to let you stay.

"Where this is life, there is hope." was it Cicero who said that? Can't recall, but love that quote.

I have to tell you: My Mom's goddaughter, Jody - her doctor's gave up on her - she is in remission suddenly - they say: "How long, we just don't know..." I say: Shuddup!

"Where there is life - there is hope!!"

Doctors of all people shouldn't be the ones trying to steal that away.

You show 'em, Treice!

Keep on being the incredible fighter you are.

Much love and well wishing;

G
