Five things Friday

I’m not sure who started this, but a lot of bloggers do this 5 things Friday so I thought Id chime in too.

First, I am so grateful to not be on chemo drugs and am enjoying this break.

Second, I am so grateful for my husband who works so hard to keep us with a roof over our heads, food and yes, health insurance. He’s of retirement age but that cant happen since we weren’t too smart finacially like most of our lives. So, he’s healthy and loves his job which is really an awesome job with great benefits.

Third, my kids are awesome and are healthy and happy.

Fourth, I’m very grateful to the LLS for the grant they provide many myeloma patients and others with blood cancers. Every little bit helps.

Fifth, that we live in a great nation, where democracy rules and all of us have a voice. We may not agree on many things but we have the right to do that.

I was a young woman when the push for womens equal rights was front and center. The late sixties and early seventies I remember so clearly a time of upheaval( Vietnam, and equal rights for women in the work place.)

We have come a long way in the last 40 years. The technological age is amazing. I love blogging about my very simple and boring life. I love reading tid bits of other peoples lives. And I’ve learned enormous things from places like the Myeloma Beacon, and people like Pat Killingsworth(RIP), and many other bloggers with myeloma and not. image
