Thanking God for his Blessings in my Life!!!

Good Evening Bloggers!!
It was cold here in Myrtle Beach this morning~~ we had frost!! I thought I would take a moment and just express some thankfulness I have experienced in my life. I think most of you know I am a cancer survivor. I had colon cancer, but they got it all and I am doing fine. It has been three years since I was diagnosed. I am so grateful to my God who is a healing God and he heard my prayers. He continues to bless me everyday!!
Every other day I hear someone that their parent, brother,sister etc has just died from colon cancer!! Every time I hear that I say a prayer of thanks to my Lord for allowing me to discover mine in time.
I am so grateful to my husband who absolutely insisted that I make my doctor send me to a colonoscopy. I had been treated for over a year for IBS and the doctor never mentioned that test. Well obviously I had the test done, and thats when they found the mass!! It was in the very early stages and the doctor told me I was going to be fine!!
So every year at Thanksgiving time I have alot to be Thankful for! I also had thyroid cancer that I had surgery for four years ago!! It is strange my thyroid cancer and my colon cancer , I was in the hospital at Thanksgiving.
I thought I would share this story with you as way to express my thankfullness. The plants below are all from friends and coworkers when I went through my surgery.

This little plant was only a sprig when I bought it at Walmart. I paid 50 cents off the bargain table for it. I cannot believe how much it has grown this year. I don't know the name of the plant. If any of you guys know. please tell me the name of it, I would greatly appreciate it.

This is a plant that work sent me when I was in the hospital for a colon resection. It was a small garden arrangement. It has really grown these past three years.
