Because of Cancer, Covid, and the recent death of my mother, I wake up every morning grateful for this beautiful adventure called life!

As I was walking to Ciraqui yesterday, the scenery was stunning, the wild roses so fragrant, new vines sprouting, and the waves of grain inspiring, telling me keep going, keep going, keep going.

Yesterday I was grateful for the two people who stopped to help me when I fell. I was grateful for the man who drove me to Estella after the fall.I was grateful for the trauma center doctors. I was grateful for the owner of the apartments who carried me to the emergency room. I was grateful for the emergency room doctors and for the pharmacy who only charged me €5.30 for my prescription! That would’ve probably been about $40 in the USA. I was grateful for my walking companions, who waited for me to come back from the hospital for dinner and who carried my backpack to my room for me. I was grateful for all the positive wishes from the people on this forum. There’s lots of love here.

Today here in France at 11am we will commemorate the end of WW2 in Europe; the peace treaty had been signed May 7, 1945, at SHAEF in nearby Reims.

Today I am grateful that we are not at war and to be alive at 83.

I'm grateful for reading posts like yours just when I need to hear of such a heartening attitude and be centred back in a calmer place myself. Thank you 🙏💕

I’m grateful for food in the fridge, a roof over my head, medical knowledge that is treating my cancer (only one more chemo session! Woohoo!) and the fact that I’ve been able to walk several Camino’s and meet such amazing people

In this moment, TBH, I'm grateful for your wonderful post, Annie!

I'm grateful for my feet, who put up with so much, - and keep going somehow in spite of often being asked to just walk.

I'm grateful for the boundless kindness of friends.

I'm grateful to my Mom today, even though she died decades ago.

And I'm grateful the camino exists, and we can walk it - physically or in memory.

What is not to be grateful for ? We all belong to this worldwide group of friends.
But today (Mother’s Day in many parts of the world).. I am grateful for what my wonderful mum gave me and gave up for me ..
tonight I am very very very grateful …… for the most wonderful meal one can experience on the camino. (I think ?). On the Sanabrés at Rionegro Del puente. Dinner at Me gustar comer.
Wow doesn’t cover it but I’ll sleep well ❤️❤️❤️💤💤💤

I am grateful for this forum. It’s full of love, sharing, written fisticuffs from time-to-time, information, and joy.

I am grateful I gain strength as I care for nonagenarian divorced parents, and all the help I receive to care for them.

I am grateful for my chemical remission for a serious illness.

I am grateful you started this post.

Take care Annie.

Buen camino.

Well, I don't mind reading posts like these when I am stuck on the other side of the world pining for The Way!
