I've just been reflecting about 9/11, and it makes me realize how blessed I am. It is such a blessing to live in this country--we really take things for granted sometimes, but we live in the best country on earth. Personally, I am blessed to have a family that loves me just for being "me". I'm blessed to be able to do the things I'm passionate about. And though I am seldom happy with the way my body looks, I am blessed to be healthy and have a body that allows me to do the things I need and want to do. I am able to see my children and grandchildren grow up, hear the laughter of those that I love, smell a pear crisp baking in my oven, hold my husband or my grandsons in my arms, and taste the fresh sweetness of a watermelon. And while there will always be things to worry about (like losing weight), the truth is: I have everything I need. Thank you God!!
