Thanksgiving gratitudes

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers, far and wide…all dozen of you Ha Ha!

We all have things to be thankful for, small and large.  I have myriads of things I can give thanks for, too many to list here, but the one I will focus on today is HEALTH.  If you HAVE it be most thankful for it today, if you dont, my heart goes out to you.

In my business I see people every day with broken bodies, broken minds, chronic pain and illness.  People dont come to me daily because they generally WANT to.  They come because they need some kind of fix for a problem they dont want to have…whatever that is. I don’t hang around an auto repair store because I like to waste time all day. I am there solely because something is broken or needs maintenance. Same with a pharmacy.

I have been gifted with good health for most of my life.  Sure, Ive been sick occasionally, but I can DO what I want most of the time.  I play golf, tennis, walk the dogs, climb stairs, play the piano, run ( if I must), etc.  All my body parts are intact and they work.  the same cannot be said for a lot of people.  Whether it be by lifestyle choice or horrific circumstances, a lot of people live with broken bodies. I see these people every single day.  AND, no matter the technological miracles we have done with modern science, we still cannot fix many of the ills people suffer.  If that was the case, there would be no need for wheelchairs….or headstones.

I recently lost my beloved pet.  All the advances in veterinary medicine couldn’t fix her.  And the same can be said for human medicine.  Yes, there are a lot of things we CAN fix, maintain or prevent, but if I lose a hand, I will never play the piano again.  No fake hand can do that. Some pain cannot be fixed.  My massive dispensing list of narcotics demonstrate that.

We can turn a blind eye to that reality, but it doesn’t make it go away. So…

On this day if you sit before a table of turkey and all the trimmings,  take just a few minutes to be grateful for something. If you have your health send a special thanks Upward. Its truly a blessing.

Love to you all!

Amen, PC. I am thankful every day, even though some days I don’t express it enough. Faith, family, friends, and health…..yes, I am blessed.
