Today I was on my way to the movies, and really noticed the beautiful green, lush grape vineyards. I was amazed just how beautiful they were against the blue sky.
I thought to myself how "grateful" I was to have my eyesight. It hit me hard....for some reason. I was just curious as to what others are grateful for each day.

I am grateful for choral music, and the ability to make a joyful noise unto God all ye lands.
Linda- I get these ocular or retinal migraines too. I discussed them with my eye doc on Tues. He said it is caused by a sudden constriction of the vessels in the eye lasts up to 30 min and then the vessels dilate and it disappears. I told him I get a yellow kidney shaped "blob" in the middle of my eyes and can' see anything for a few minutes. He said taking a Beta-blocker helps with the constriction. I do take a Beta- blocker ( metoprolol). He also said they aren't really dangerous. I hope this info is helpful.
Kindness and Compassion from others. Has made me stronger.

Today is my 13th D-anniversary, and I am very grateful to be complication free after 13 years. When I look back over these 13 years they seemed to go quickly, but the days went very slowly. I am grateful to have so many friends here on TuD to talk to and share life with. We really are a family with D as the magnet drawing us together. I hope to be here for many more years giving and getting support. Thanks to all of you. Cat

After a bad night with nausea and light-headedness and persistently high BGs from a stomach that refused to empty for 12 hours, I got some good sleep today, and feel well enough to go play Renaissance music with my friends. So I'm grateful that bad times (usually) pass.

Wow...I looked at the post I wrote in 2009..."Grateful to have my eyesight". Boy, how things changed. Sept 2010 is when I had my eye hemorrhage. Long road...But, I am getting my eyesight BACK in my right eye. So...I am VERY Grateful to say the least, for every day I can see the beauty around me.
