as i sit here and think about the last post and wonder what to say, it occurs to me that i've overlooked the simplest of things and the most important...i'm grateful to be alive. i'm so glad that when i go to sleep at night that i wake up the next morning. that although i have some minor health issues (like asthma and allergies) that it's nothing as major as it could be. with the price of health care in the states, that is a major thing to be grateful about.
i'm grateful for a roof over my head, clothes on my back, air to breathe and the blood that courses through my veins. i have a brain to think and a heart to love. i'm in possession of my fingers, toes and two eyes (even when they don't see as well as they used to). i have a full head of hair (even some extra that i'm not so grateful about) and feet that carry me around. yes, those are many things that we all can sometime take for granted.
and though the package is somewhat worn and tattered at times, it's still a bundle that i cherish having. and i'm grateful for the gratitude and the time this has given me to remind myself how very blessed that i am. i am rich beyond my wildest dreams and sometimes, a little nudge to remind me of that is just what i needed.
