My Wonderful Husband: He wakes up alone every morning and hates it, but never complains. He makes sure I get a good meal every day and is a great cook. He goes to karaoke with me, even though being in a noisy bar type atmosphere is the last thing he wants to do because that's what he did for a living. I don't know how I got so lucky, but I'm glad I did and I love him very much. Thanks for being my best friend.
My Good Neighbors: Mr & Mrs George walk with me most mornings, Phil & Ruth are always smiling, Willie & Sharon invite me to all their social functions and bring over home-made desserts and all the others who wave and say hello when I stagger past. Thanks for being my friends and making this such a nice neighborhood.
My Parkie Friends: They live in Canada, all over the USA, Australia, Europe and the rest of the world. We talk online and I can always count on them to "know" what I am feeling like. Plus, they will even listen to my latest song parodies and sometimes even request them. Thanks for being there.
My other friends: I am so lucky to have met so many nice people over the years and most keep in touch. If I run into any of them, I can be guaranteed a big hug. I love hugs, the whole world could use more hugs. Thanks for all the hugs.
My Facebook friends who make me smile, my Twitter friends who cheer me up 140 characters at a time, the people at karaoke who laugh at my songs and don't throw tomatoes at me. Thanks!
I am thankful that I just have Parkinson's Disease and not something more serious, that my Doctors really seem to care about me, that I haven't lost my sense of humor, that my step-daughter and grandson are good people, and that I live in America.
I am thankful that I live in Yuma, Arizona where the sun is always shining and it never snows and occasionally, because I am always up early, and because it's taken several hours to write this, I get treated to beautiful sunrises like this one I just saw.
What are you thankful for?
