I received a comment to my last post and it made me stop and helped to redirect my thoughts from what is making me feel overwhelmed to what I am blessed to have in my life.  Thank you Carol, for helping me see that I am an incredibly blessed woman, and there are people out there who are far worse off than I am.

Tonight I'd like to turn my thoughts from what brings me down to what lifts me up...

I am grateful for:
  • Two healthy, happy, amazing, smart, BEAUTIFUL, amazing, compassionate,amazing, funny children.  They are the center of my universe!
  • A job that I enjoy, that I am good at, that allows me to support myself and my kids without help from anyone else.
  • A car that, although is having its problems, still gets me where I need to go.  As frustrating as it may be, I can see between the cracks.
  • A home that keeps us warm and safe.
  • Food in our bellies.
  • Clothes on our backs.
  • Someone in my life who makes me feel loved and valued, despite the ups and downs I have when life gets so overwhelming I can't seem to make any sense of it.  Thank you J.
  • Music.
  • Laughter.
  • Ibuprofen.
  • Tears... when I cry they cleanse my soul from within.
  • The ability to get back up after I fall, to believe in myself enough that I can try again, facing failure every time.
  • Amazing friends.  
  • Amazing friends.
  • Amazing friends.
  • A desire to continue to grow despite the struggles that I feel on a daily basis. 
  • Love.
