I usually post this on Turkey Day but honestly I was so busy at work this past week that I never got around to doing it. At my mother-in-law's house in North Carolina we always go around the room before saying Grace and ask everyone to say what they are thankful for this year. It never hurts to count your blessings. In face, several medical studies have indicated that those individuals who have a positive attitude about their life and situation are healthier than those who always see the glass as half-empty. On the other hand my Dad has always been a glass is half-empty guy and he is still hanging in there at 88 years of age.....
I am thankful for my family...they are a source of love, support and joy...even the teenagers.
I am thankful for my health...although I would like my hair loss to slow down.
I am thankful for my career...I remain stimulated and enthusiastic about my profession.
I am thankful for my partners and staff...Couldn't ask for a better partner than DrD (12 years and counting) and Dr Reh and Dr Payson and all the employees at Dominion.
I am thankful for my patients...They have always been my best teachers.
I am thankful for my church....2 years on the Senior Pastor Search Committee failed to dampen my support for the National Presbyterian Church (still there is no politics like church politics!).
I am thankful for God from whom all these blessings flow (just like in the song)!
So that's my list and I am sticking by it!
Hope everyone had a Happy Turkey Day! I will try to get to those recent posts....
