I am a 53 year old woman with 2 sons, 1 daughter, one son-in-law, one daughter-in-law, 2 schnausers, 1 cat, a house, 3 guitars and a Miata.

My first grandchild is expected to arrive in October. I looking forward to her arrival.
I have somehow managed to stay married to the same man for 31 years – probably through no fault of my own.

I have survived an alcoholic father, at least one extended bout of depression, and birthing 3 babies “naturally” (no medication – my choice to do it that way) and converting to the Catholic Church.
Finally in life, I have learned to appreciate the joy of girlfriends – the joys of sharing my life with my sisters.

Life is good.

BUT…… am well now and I am so GRATEFUL I am alive to know the joy of waking up to a new day and looking forward to every minute of it!!!!!!!

    I worked my way through Simple Abundance (Sarah Ban Breathnach) a few years ago. A good exercise, but I didn’t really catch on the at a gut level to the list of things to be thankful for. I think this posting was a case of delayed reaction.

    Someone gave me a thought to chew on yesterday: We don’t see things as THEY are – we see things as WE are.
