This time of year, I can't help but be thankful for The Man and the relationship we have together. This weekend we will celebrate NINETEEN years of marriage!! Crazy. Sometimes it feels like F.O.R.E.V.E.R., but most times, I just can't believe it's actually been that long already. I'm grateful he's my best friend and the person I most love spending time with.
And that he's handy with fixing stuff. :)
I'm grateful for an awesome employer. I started my seasonal tax-time job a little early this year (yesterday) on a special project that's a little tedious and decidedly unglamorous, but the office is just such a great place to be that it really doesn't matter what they ask me to do, I just enjoy being there. I'm fortunate to have a boss who goes above and beyond to make the workplace a place I and my co-workers actually enjoy going to.
thankful that though my MRI at the end of last month did indeed show two herniated discs in my back, both are quite minor. In fact, the one was a complete surprise to me! The other one, not surprisingly, is in exactly the area that could be causing or affecting my hip/back issue, but it's not severe enough to know for sure. My doctor's only suggestion was to continue with physiotherapy. I was a little bummed about that, but his assurance that general, day-to-day activities wouldn't exacerbate it helped. I'm grateful this problem hasn't ever actually laid me up at all over the two years it's been an issue, despite the range of discomfort, and even though I've definitely had to make concessions and compensations because of it.
thankful it hasn't kept me from walking. I don't always go as often as I can/should each week, but man, I'm not sure how I would cope if I suddenly couldn't do it anymore!
What are YOU grateful for this week?
