A Thousand Gifts

I am discovering that there is always much to be thankful for, and today is one of those days when I am reminded to count every single blessing and every single day because we aren't promised tomorrow.  Today marks four years since I went to the hospital with cancer still in my body and emerged from surgery a few hours later with zero cancer.  Any way you look at it, it was a good day. A good day to celebrate. A good day to be thankful.
