This is my first full day home after my back surgery, and I wanted to spend my 30 minutes of allowed sitting time (per every 2 hours or so), getting a quick note out. I was looking at some Tweets and found this quote about giving thanks and taking nothing for granted. I caught myself thinking these thoughts as I sat in the hospital after my surgery. This is the time of year where we focus on giving thanks. I think it's also needed to focus on not taking things for granted too.
There were plenty of examples while I was in the hospital that I was very focused on these ideas. I heard a couple of stories about people there that stuck with me and it made me realize that my story and what I was going through was not that bad.
I've often said that it's too bad for us to think about thoughts like these when we are going through something bad or sad. How about you take a look at the quote up above again and spend a few moments of thinking about giving more thanks and work to take less for granted. I know I'll be doing that for sure. Short write up since I don't have a lot of time... but I'll be around for sure. Drop me a note and I will be getting to them at some point while I keep trying to get better.
