I read the article.
Three things I am grateful for. 1-waking up this morning with another chance to accomplish goals and make necessary changes. 2-I am a mom of a wonderful daughter who makes me very proud. 3-I have a God who is with me always.
Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (NIV) Mark 11:24
I only take one day at a time, and not worry about the past. Right now is what is important.

Sorry to be a day late but had a wonderful day yesterday visiting relatives. I even took a swim in the pool and enjoyed a barbeque. Lots to be grateful there. Beautiful weather and birds singing every where.

Good article. There is such a long list to pick from. I'm grateful I have two (fairly) strong working legs because for a while I didn't. I'm grateful for Social Security because it allowed me to keep my home when otherwise I would have lost it. I'm grateful for "my kids" (my cousins that I raised after their mother died), who were there for me every day when I needed them. Mostly I'm grateful that I'm alive and able to experience this day, no matter what it brings.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
