Today is Celebrate the Small Things Friday. Hosted by Lexa Cain, L.G. Keltner of Writing Off the Edge, and Tonja Drecker of Kidbits, Celebrate the Small Things is a time when we all take a moment to celebrate something good from our week. It can be small, it can be big, just something to look back on the week and celebrate!
It has been a crazy week, and I am writing this sitting in the Doctors office of one of multiple appointments I have today. So I celebrate the fact that I have access to quality health care. That I finally have a job which provides me with health insurance, and sick leave so I am not being fiscally penalized for taking care of my health.
For a long time I had no insurance, it wasn’t availible through my work – which kept me at part time so insurance wouldn’t have to be provided. For a long time there was no such thing as sick-leave at my jobs, so being sick meant a cost AND a loss of revenue.
So I am very grateful, and celebrating even in the midst of not so great health issues.
