Thanksgiving Blog

Published November 27, 2009 10:29 AM by Lisa West
Last year I wrote a "Thankful Blog" including a list of things I was thankful for over the course of the year. 

Likewise, I have many things to be thankful about this year.  They include:

  • Great patients, coworkers and managers -In just 5 short months of working, I've learned a great deal from the people I interact with at work. My patients have taught me to appreciate every day for the gift it is, my coworkers teach me to be a better therapist, and my managers have guided me to balance my work and personal growth.
  • Supportive family - I can't ever thank my family enough for all their love. They cheer me on during difficult times and stand by me during my greatest accomplishments. As I once told my mom, I sparkle because they let me shine.
  • Great health - I'm reminded of this blessing during each of my treatment sessions. I am physically and mentally capable of getting out of bed each day, of driving to work, of standing on my feet all day. Many people would consider this to be impossible.
  • Endless opportunities -My clinical in Arizona earlier this year gave me a wonderful opportunity to travel with my mom and see new, amazing places. A closed door on a neurology residency opened new opportunities in the beginning of my career.
  • Grace - There have been several experiences this year which have opened my eyes to the fact that we are but a small part of this world, and that a higher grace most certainly exists.

I hope reading my list inspires you to write your own.  We can all be thankful.

So true.  The good things are so easily taken for granted.  There are great blessings all around us.  Thanks for the reminder
