Gratitude


Friday, July 30, 2010

emoticonToday I realize just how lucky I really am. I don't know why I never realized this before, I guess the accident I had 2 weeks ago changed my perspective. I am grateful for my family especially my husband and my son. My husband who will by 86 on Aug 3rd is in almost perfect health. He is my all in all. He is my helpmeet, my encourager, and my sustainer. He does everything for me that I can not do plus more. He makes sure that I eat properly, he goes on walks with me, he makes sure that I check my blood sugar levels when I am supposed to and when I fall off track he always cheers me on and tells me that I will reach my goals and that he will help me- what more can a woman ask for. My son can be difficult, but as far as a teenager goes he is a good kid. He doesn't smoke, drink, do drugs or have sex. He hangs around with good Christian kids,is involved in sports, karate and church-even plays bass guitar in the band at church. He is in excellent health and cares a lot for other people and animals. He is motivated to looking for a job. We have all that we need and most of what we want, a little money in the bank, but a lot of debt- I am in the midst of bankruptcy but if that is the only downfall we have then we are very lucky. Thank you SparkPeople for being here for me as well. The friendships I have developed here are keeping me focused on my goals and helping me to see my self value. Thanks for sharing the journey with me.

    I have tears in my eyes. You are truly blessed to have such a warm loving family and the support of those around you. I hope you are fine after your accident. It sometimes does take something near tragic to make you step back and look at what is truly around you and the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us. Yes we have trials, but that only makes what we do have that much more special. God bless you and your family. You are loved in many ways and a treasure to others as well.
Hugs,
Angela
