A Month for Being Thankful

A friend of mine had started this, and I thought it was a wonderful idea. For the month of November, I will post everyday, what I am most grateful for and why. This will be a wonderful way to blog and enjoy the true spirit of November. So to make up for the days I missed...

Facebook... Yes laugh it up! But we have had some pretty great things come from Facebook. I get to communicate with our extended family more, which I never had the opportunity to do. I get to know what is gong on in their lives, where as before, it would be play catch up when we got the chance. It has also given my family the opertunity to get to know some family members of Eric's that he had lost contact with. Sunday, we got to spend time with them and enjoy the company of some really great people that I am a glad to have in my life now.

Freedom... Today we all had the choice to vote. I took advantage of my freedoms and performed my civic duties. I wish more people would take advantage of their freedoms and voice who they would like to run our government. Never forget the men and women who had and are fighting so tirelessly for our freedoms we all enjoy.

My nap... It's the little things that count, right? I should probably come up with something better, but it was great. I never take naps, but I really needed one yesterday.

Heath Care Technology... Today I watched a video of a man who suffered a cardiac arrest on a soccer field. He was saved by the EMT's and it was very heart wrenching for me. I have been told that I may never see Mason and Dylann have a cardiac arrest as long as they stayed controlled on medication. They could not, however, give me a guarantee for Cache. The comfort of him having his ICD for me is amazing. I know that if it does happen, and I can not be there, his little mechanical heart will kick in and save his life.
