I am thankful. For many many things. I think I am even thankful for endometriosis. I have been thinking about whether we can be thankful for even the bad stuff. Not just in the bad stuff but also for it!
If that bad stuff points us further to God. If it drives us to His feet, I think we may be thankful for, and in it.
I am thankful that I am now mostly painfree.
I am thankful that the hormone I take seems to generally agree with me.
I am thankful that, my friend-become-brother, Mike advised and insisted that I take my 6 months post-surgery review seriously, and actually go for it.
I am thankful that I listened.
I am thankful that I got good news.
I am not sure if I am thankful for the bad news.
I am thankful that he was with me at the doctor’s the entire time.
I am thankful that I didn’t have to cry alone on the drive from the hospital.
I am thankful for his wife and their home that’s also become mine.
I am thankful for friends that have become family.
For all the love and support that God continues to surround me with.
I am thankful for questions like,
“How may we pray for you?”
And for the gift of prayer.
I am thankful for Yesu. Most of all.
I trust that He is always with me.
And that He is making something of me.
And of this hard endo journey!
I am thankful.
Why were they made—if people are made?” “Perhaps they will be made something of yet!”

P.S I will write about the rough review and tears when I have processed some more, and perhaps gathered more courage!
