Today is one of those days that I have to dig a little deeper than usual to find that non sucking bit of life. I hurt and have a killer headache, the Hero is grumpy, the kids are pouty and bored, the weather is miserable...... oh yeah this is supposed to be about the not so sucky things. ;)

Let's see.... in a recent discussion on a message board I've been reminded of something that I take for granted- health care. I live in Canada and while our system is far from perfect I'm extremely grateful for it. I have found that it is a system largely misunderstood by those that don't live here. I still can't figure out where some of the perspectives come from, many of them complete misconceptions. It would seem that the media has done an awesome job of villifying socialized medicine and some people won't hear truth from those that live and experience the very system they are so against. Whatev....I'm thankful that I have great health care at my fingertips.....even with the frustration of getting a diagnosis for a my mysterious torment I'm thankful.

I'm proud to be Canadian and health care is just one of the many reasons I'm thankful to live in the greatest country on earth.


  1. It's definately the media. I'm happy for you that everything truely is good...I wish that was so here. Hopefully they find a way to make it work here.


  2. sorry you are not feeling the best today!! Sending you big hugs.
