I have so many blessings for which to be grateful today. In no particular order, they are:
My Mom’s kitties
Medical advancements in diabetes care
A warm, comfortable place to live
Friends, both flesh-and-blood, and bloggy
Living in a country where disagreement doesn’t necessarily mean conflict
My job, and my terrific boss and co-workers
and so many others, which I often take for granted, though they aren’t.
Above all, I am so grateful to be nearing 54, when for so long I thought I’d never see any of the last couple of decades. I am sometimes overwhelmed by this part of my life, one for which I didn’t prepare at all; at other times, I feel quite normally content to be near a half-century in age. When I think of the things I’ve done in just the last few years, I am astounded.
I’m leaving this short, today, because I didn’t do any of my algebra yesterday, and I don’t want to lose what progress I’ve made. For everyone who reads this post, remember: feeling grateful need not take a particular form. In whatever form comes to you, give yourself a boost, and stop to think of all the blessings in your life. This weekly check-in keeps me balanced, and aware that I am a very, very lucky woman, indeed.
