FEELING GOOD!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

i think this will be short and sweet today....i just feel so happy and thankful and have as much peace as I had in a long time...I have a sunny day....minnimal job stress, infact job joy :-)(who knew?), my doggie and my kitty (whos eye is almost all better now:-0) and my little patio garden growing(beautiful!), my bug will be coming over soon(jeffrey)........ all of this.....AND....I have gorgeous flowers on my table :-)

I just thought I should offer thanks to God, His universe and just take the time to countat least some of these very undeserved blessings, for which i am so grateful!

I have written this before, but I once heard(I think Oprah) :
If the only prayer you ever say is 'Thank You', it will be enough.

I ALWAYS REMEMBERED THAT SAYING.....


THANK YOU!

STEPHANIE
