Count your blessings. . .

  • Despite the fact that I am the heaviest I have been in 3 years, I am still healthy. The only physical problem I ever are my migraines, and those are only occasional and mostly controlled by medication (thank G-d)
  • I am fortunate to have a loving, considerate boyfriend on whom I can rely
  • I am doing a job that I enjoy and does good for the community
  • I have a wonderful dog who brings joy to me every day
  • I live in a comfortable home (even though it's not as neat or organized as I would like)
  • I drive a reliable car that I enjoy
  • I am able to volunteer my time to M, who desperately needs consistency in her life. At age 6, she has known me longer than anyone else currently in her life
  • I am blessed to have the love of many good friends
  • Both my parents are still living, and my relationship with both of them is good
  • I have a terrific sister (I only wish she lived closer so that I could see her more often)
  • I am physically able to do all the things I want to do. Sure, I now get short of breath going up & down stairs, but I can still climb 'em!
  • I live in a beautiful area of the country, with over 300 days of sunshine a year

Wow, I'm a lucky gal!
