Gratitude

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Yesterday I was at the car dealership from 7:45am-2:50pm. Yep, I beat the sales associates there. After I dropped Shakeira off at school, I putt-putted on to the dealership. By the grace of God I was approved for a loan. The loan amount wasn't what I was hoping for, but with my credit, it was truly a blessing. I got a 2010 Red Chevy Aveo 4dr. I picked the kids up from school at 3pm, went to pay life insurance, then back home. As soon as I got comfortable my husband called for me to pick him up. Even though we're separated, he's been giving me money every Friday to help out. I am grateful to him because he could be bitter and say, " To hell with her and MY kids." but he doesn't. He tells me he's proud for me. I drop him off, then back home. I was so tired, I fell asleep before the kids. Nine months ago I was back in my addiction after having experienced years of sobriety. I am grateful to God however for ALL the up and especially the downs. He has restored what was lost and have added more. So today my gratitude shows up in my attitude. Thank you ALL for your continued support AND encouragement.

By the way, I started over on the 12th and I'm down 3 lbs. That's around 1 lbs a week. emoticon emoticon SELF! emoticon
