Week 4 Blog BSG Challenges Life Throwing you Lemons/Positives about Appearance

Sunday, April 27, 2014

The blog assignment for this week's BSG challenge is what makes me happy when life throws me lemons and to list three positives about my appearance.

Life has definitely thrown me a few lemons and the only thing that keeps me going is my faith and keeping a positive attitude. When my son died at the age of 15, I found comfort in thinking that he died doing something he loved doing. When Bill died in November, I have found comfort in keeping active because that is what Bill wanted me to do.

Thinking of three positives about my appearance is challenging, but I would have to go with
(1) my smile; (2) my hair; and (3) my eyes as those are the things I get the most compliments on from others.
