Robert Paul Reyes: My List of Thanksgiving Blessings
The Thanksgiving season is once again upon us and it`s time to reflect on our blessings. Here`s a list of blessings:
It`s interesting how the older I get the more I`m grateful for things that I once took for granted, like good health. I was diagnosed with cancer March of this year and I underwent radiation treatment July and August and I am now cancer-free.
I`M SUCCESSFULLY MANAGING MY DIABETES
I was also diagnosed with diabetes this year, and I am managing this potentially deadly disease with medication and a healthy diet. It`s impossible to defeat diabetes if you`re overweight or obese, and I`m thankful that I`ve lost more than 30 pounds this year, and for the first time in my adult life I`m not overweight.
I thank Judyth Piazza the CEO of theSop.org for allowing me to write for her Web site. Since 2008 I`ve posted thousands of essays and I`m grateful they`re carried by Google News.
Mandy my loyal pooch and Ebony and Tico my playful and mischievous cats are a constant source of joy and love.
MY LITTLE PINK HOUSE
When I read about the hundreds of homes that have burnt to the ground in the California fires, I thank God for my tiny mortgage-free dwelling.
I couldn`t have made it through this season of medical drama without the prayers and support of my sisters.
I appreciate all the positive feedback from my readers, I`m even grateful for the criticism, it serves to make me a better writer.
