I need to do this right now. I have so many blessings and it's easy to get caught up in the negative sometimes.

1) I was able to give each of my sons GREAT birthdays this year, very memorable and exactly what each wanted in terms of how we celebrated.

2) Grandkids with their big cheeks and big eyes and lots of happy noise.

3) My sons and the women they chose to be in their lives. Very blessed.

4) Nearing the end of a year of reinvention. My life has changed for the better because of choices I made last year and the first half of this year. Perseverance pays off.

5) My parents are still here in this world and we have mended a lot of broken fences.

6) My best friend and her daughter.

7) Having a roof over my head.

My Kindle.

9) The internet and all it has brought me.

Who is next?
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

5) I am blessed in using the sleep meds so that I am actually sleeping now.

6) I am blessed to be here and having failed with my SI attempts.

Next..........
All of the flowers, of all of our tomorrows, are found in the seeds of today. Plant them well, nurish them, nurture them, keep them safe and watch how beautifully they will bloom.
