Thankful

This time of year, we reflect on what we are thankful for in life.  Some of the things I am thankful for include my family, my home and my job.  But I am most thankful for my son.  His joy, beauty, and the sheer happiness he brings, completes me.   I believe he also saved my life because it was during my pregnancy that I was diagnosed. I realize that all too often people don’t learn they are HIV positive until they are sick.  My husband and I were so fortunate to discover our status while we were still relatively healthy.  I feel this has given us an advantage against the disease that others are not so lucky to have. And to be honest, I’m even a little thankful for HIV.  Not so much for the disease itself (it terrifies me), but more for the outlook on life it has given me.  I am now able to see life in a much different perspective.  I am thankful for each and every day and realize that life truly is a gift from God.  I am able to laugh more.  I am able to love deeper.  And I am able to live fuller.

When I was told as was positive, part of me died but when I got home, I looked at my family(sister and brothers) and I told myself that I was lucky to be alive and that I had known before I got sick. I am so thankful to God for giving me another chance, I take one day at a time and am happy that you also feel happy and that your son is a blessing. Thank you for adding more encorangement to my life, it is worth while. Thank you and God bless.
