Tuesday, April 23, 2013
On my 23rd rise and shine day, HOORAY!!! April 2013 has been my best month in years. I am usually extremely depressed the entire month of April, because my oldest son was killed when his home was invaded on April 30th, 2004. This year has been different. I am grateful for the challenge that has had tremendous benefits for my mind, body and soul. Not to say that I haven't had my moments because I have. I'm just saying that I have not fallen into a deep dark place of depression and despair. I am grateful that I have been able to put a genuinely heartfelt smile on my face each and every day this month. I am grateful for the endorphins that lift my spirits and zest for life. Above all, I am grateful to God for giving me the strength and the wisdom to change the things I can to live a happier and healthier lifestyle.
