Gratitudes

I got an e-mail from my friend Magda today asking for a story about something crazy bad that has happened to me, that is either amusing if the wounds have healed, or something that still pisses me off.  I started giving this some thought, and although yes, some painful stuff has happened to me, I feel like I lead a pretty charmed life.  I’m not in any sort of denial about the bad shit that’s gone down in my life, I guess I would rather focus on the good things in my life.   After all, energy follows thought, and the universe provides us with what we focus on the most.   Don’t worry, Mag, I’ll come up with something for your website, but for right now I’m just thankful for who I am and what I have been blessed with. 

I live in a great house, I’ve got a husband, whom I love dearly,  who makes me feel loved, wanted and very safe, a smart and spunky eight-year-old who provides me with many opportunities per day to learn, and a new baby that fills my heart with a whole new appreciation for life.  Are you gagging yet?   Go ahead! 

I also have a wonderful support system of friends who I consider sisters, and an extra mom who really helped me through some tough times while I was growing up.  I also have my immediate family, who can be CRAZY dysfunctional, making me shake my head at times, but they are there for me.

A very wise lady reminded me the other day that everything, good and bad,  happens for a reason.  I’ve been blessed with many opportunities to grow emotionally and spiritually, make mistakes, and to learn and learn some more.   I am who I am today partly because of those opportunities, whether they were happy or painful.  So for that, I am grateful.
