I'm counting my blessings!!!!

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Thanksgiving is in less than a week as we all know, but this year seems a little different for me. Although I'm semi-retired, I still work 3 days a week. I work with the public in a service capacity and what I'm hearing lately is quite alarming. I met a sweet lady yesterday who told me that her health insurance had just been dropped. Her husband was on Medicare & it would cost over $800 to insure him - really??? And she's not alone. I'm sure - that's what's so alarming. After she left I cried. I almost feel guilty for being unaffected.

This year I am certainly counting my blessings. I have 3 beautiful children, 6 amazing grandchildren & a wonderful husband!

I'm so very grateful for what I have!!!!

Enjoy your blessings, Sue. You are a vert sweet spirit.
We need to pray for those not as fortunate, and share as we can.

Love, Ginger

    We just found out our insurance went up 100%! We had paid off our cars in preparation of this possibility. We are blessed that we can hold on for now. Hugs, Laurel

    It's so easy to focus on what we don't have - good for you for being thankful for the good things you DO have in your life!

    We should all count our blessings. I have two wonderful sons, an amazing daughter in law and 4 loving grandsons. I also have great friends here and on Sparkpeople. I have good health, an adequate income and a loving God.

I don't think anyone could ask for more.

Have a great Thanksgiving.
