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.

This is magical you, Lori. You put words unlike no other to express how you feel about what you are going through, either bad, or like this one, good.

~ If they give you ruled paper, write sideways. ~
