I know I'm not the only one here who is grateful , not only to be alive, but to be thriving! It didn't seem possible two and a half years ago, when I was skinny, bald, hairless😂 weak, feeling pukey etc etc, but today I'm so appreciative of life. The terrible fires in California only underscore what blessings I have to be thankful for. Feeling strong, fit and happy again. Enjoying life at the beach, with family and friends. Not going to the dang doctors every week! Although I do miss seeing them and their staff😃.Ladies- we get knocked down, but we get up again! Whatever you are going through, you can get through!Love to you all💜

Amen CaliKelly!! Thankful for my family, my health, my husband's health, and my home!! I'm truly blessed. In the last year and a half I've survived cancer and my husband survived a heart attack. We both are thankful to be alive and together to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family!! This past summer we watched our next door neighbor's house burn and then have to be torn down. After watching what they went through I feel such sympathy for what the families in California are facing. I pray that the fires are extinguished soon without more lives lost.

Yes, we are all fighters. We may have gotten knocked down but we do get back up to fight again!! Happy Thanksgiving and hugs to all of my sisters here!!
