A friend once told me I should count my blessings. So I did. I had a lot of counting to do. I racked up a bunch of numbers Just being blessed by freedom of the past. Today I have things I never dreamed Iíd have. My parents are still alive. My children have exceeded my expectations. Iím not being used and abused in my marriage. I have love in my life. We make ends meet. So far, even the cancer has turned out okay. Iím writing as much as ever. I have grand babies! My daughter and I are finally getting along. (thatís huge!) And all things considered, I feel the best about me as I ever have. So thank you my friend for inviting me to go there, I needed that.
