My Aunt phoned me (for which I am very thankful) and mentioned that getting a thankful journal might be helpful. One where I just write five or ten things that were positive that day. Little things, like someone opening the door or a smile from a random person.
I have yet to buy a journal but I am thankful for some little things.
- The waiter at Rustenburg Spur last night that saw that I wasn’t feeling well and when Tommie asked for ice-cold water with lemons, she brought it immediately. Just as he ordered. When the boys came back with medicine, she saw that and brought me room temperature water for the pills.
- I’m thankful for my friend Liesl, who just continuously brings a smile to my face. From the day she brought the most delicious milktart, to the recent cushion that will help that my safety belt doesn’t irritate my chemo port.
- I could never mention all the little things my mom and dad does but please know that I see and appreciate every little and big thing.
- My children. Your patience with me and the will to help me as soon as I need something. I am blessed with amazing children.
- My brothers who cycled the 94.7 with pink hair. Now that’s showing support if I ever saw it.
- My mom, who put pink stripes in her hair. If you know my mom you would know that it is totally out of her comfort zone. Thanks Mom.
- To my daughters (both from heart) Kyla and Jeane, who puts breast cancer images as their profile pictures and status on whatsapp. I’m proud of you.
- The receptionist at one of the doctor’s I went to last week that also has breast cancer and was extra sweet and friendly.
- Melanie from The final touch, who has gone way and beyond to help me feel pretty. Also for helping with my hair after the op. You don’t know how much I appreciate it.
- Our coach family that bought me a cancer ribbon necklace and chocolates after the op.
- Our junior coach who asks and cares about how I’m doing.
- The pink valve caps Tommie bought for my bus.
- My soul mate who drove 2 hours to give me a hug.
- One of my dear friends who put pink stripes in her hair, regardless of what the school headmaster will say. The fellow teachers love it though 🙂
I could never remember everyone or everything but there are so many little things. I never thought I would have the kind of support I do.
I am thankful for everyone who has done something to show support or send a message.
