Life With Lupus

Time to give thanks! xo ;)


#1

HI ALL,

WE HAVE IT TOUGH, WE ALL FEEL PRETTY DARN BAD, WE STRUGGLE WITH CONFIDENCE, WE HAVE ISSUES WITH OUR SELF-ESTEEM, WE ARE ANGRY THAT WE EVEN HAVE THIS ILLNESS THAT ALTERS OUR LIVES & THOSE AROUND US SO MUCH, ..................BUT, WE ALSO REALIZE THAT WE HAVE SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR!

WE FORGET SOMETIMES TO THINK OF THEM EVERYDAY, BUT AS THANKSGIVING APPROACHES US, WE SHOULD TRY TO REFLECT ON WHAT WE ARE THANKFUL FOR, OR WHO WE R THANKFUL FOR, WHATEVER YOU CAN THINK OF, SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH US HERE......LIFE GOES BY IN A BLINK OF AN EYE, THAT AT TIMES WE FORGET OR DON'T EVEN HAVE THE CHANCE TO EXPRESS THIS.....SO THIS GIVES US A CHANCE TO, AND AS ALWAYS, HERE WE DO NOT JUDGE, WE SUPPORT, WE HELP ANY WAY WE CAN & WE KNOW WE R ALWAYS ACCEPTED FOR WHOM WE ARE!!

SO I WILL START THIS OFF, TODAY ON NOV. 16TH, 2011, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU ALL HERE & THIS SITE, IT GIVES ME HAPPINESS & MEANING IN MY LIFE....AND U ARE ALL TRULY A LIL' FAMILY OF MINE THAT I HOLD SO CLOSE TO MY HEART <3!! SO THANK U TO EVERYONE OF YOU.....

LUV, SUZIE :0)

Me too suzie! I am thankful for this lwl and all of you people that I feel so connected to even though we have never met in person. I am soooo thankful for so many things: my insurance, my counselor and the new things I am learning, for the food in my belly and the warm blankets on my bed, for the coffee I get to wake up to and my crock pot that brews ginger tea for me, for my dogs, for Youtube(i love youtube) for my lamps (I never knew why i was so freaky about proper lighting, but i read somewhere that having Lupus makes us extra sensitive to lighting)---more to come. I am going to make it a habit to write a gratitude list every day.

Great idea suzie!

At the moment, I'm just thankful that you're back in such fine form, Miss Suze! Although I'm normally guilty of having an envy and low tolerance for folks who manage to be chipper and upbeat in the mornings and the worst of times, your sweet and glowing posts always somehow hit me contagiously, making me relieved and grateful for your wise decision to return to us. Thanks, honey. Hugs, pj

Suzie, would you mind terribly changing the shade of either red or green on your page so this color-blind fan can dicipher your posts? Know it might put a kink in your MarthaFreakinStewart holiday gene (which I kissed goodbye along with the Good Housekeeping seal of approval that hit the road when my lupus barged in), but my increasingly inconvenient gene pool (Thanks again, Pop!) has left several of my siblings and me (rare in women) afflicted with an inability to see and discern the contrast between many shades in the red/green spectrum (covers lots of reds, greens, blues, purples, & browns). How about a red or green background with white lettering to help a friend in need of your chipper and upbeat posts, especially after having one of those weeks I wish never was? Hugs, pj

p.s. Besides, many men also have color-blindness so you maybe helping more members than either of us know.

MY NOV. 17TH, GRATTUTUDE: I TODAY AM GRATEFUL THAT I WAS ABLE WITH THE HELP OF GOD & MY ANGELS THAT WATCH ME FROM ABOVE TO FIND MY WAY BACK HERE AND MAKE THAT DECISION AS IT IS WHERE I AM WELCOMED WITH SUCH OPEN MINDS & SOME REALLY GR8 & TRUE FRIENDS, ALTHOUGH, WE R MILES APART, I FEEL AS IF WE R FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS, FOR YEARS & YEARS, LOL...;) AND I FEEL LIKE YOU ARE ALL ALWAYS HERE WHEN I NEED SOME REALLY AWESOME FRIENDS THAT "GET ME".... SO, I AM HAPPY THAT THIS WEEK I REALIZED THAT THIS IS WHERE I AM WANTED, APPRECIATED, NEEDED & LOVED FOR "ME"! THANKS TO YOU ALL, MUCH GRATITUDE FROM ME TO U! :0) XOXOXOXO SUZIE
