Things I’m Grateful For

Thank you, God, for the gift of life. 🙏

A surprise gift from my long-time friend, Lanie.
My fave cake from my daughter.

I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for on my birthday this year. I’m happy to share that my health status is quite okay now. Based on my latest blood workup, there are no traces of fats in my liver. Weight loss is one of the factors that help my liver heal from fatty liver disease. I’ve lost almost 30 pounds primarily due to adhering to a low-carb diet. I eat everything in moderation, but I eat more veggies now. I’ve also added chia and flax seeds to my drinks.

Financially, we make ends meet. Despite the limited source of income, we’ve managed to support our youngest through college. We are looking forward to our son’s graduation this year. 🙏

I’ll be 50-something

It is my birthday month.

Thank you, Lord, for the 50 plus years.

Thankful for the life I choose to live, for the ups and downs, and most of all, for the happiness of being with people I love, who will be by my side, no matter where the tide of life will take me.

One friend asked me if I have plans for my birthday. I told her none because I’m filling up my enrolment fund box, so any expenses will have to wait for the meantime.

Thank you, Lord for another year and continuous blessings. God is good all the time!

I have so much to say about my operation but just couldn’t translate them into words. I can only summarize¬†everything in one word – THANKFUL.

    • Thankful to God I was able to pull through the medical crisis – that the¬†agonizing pain for so many years due to endometriosis was over.
    • for¬†the physical and emotional strength to undergo a major medical procedure.
    • for family, friends and relatives who offer prayers and emotional support.
    • to doctors and nurses who took care of me while at the hospital.
    • for the provision to sustain the family despite financial constraint.
    • that we were able to produce the amount that we need for the operation.
    • for another lease on life and the chance to take care of my family for as long as I can.

Thank God I’m alive!
