Extremely Fortunate

I know that people probably get so sick of reading how fortunate that I feel that I am, but sometimes I can't help but post about it. I am really, really so fortunate. I have so many things to be thankful for. I forget sometimes myself, and I don't think that nearly enough of us take the time to think of all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us and thank God for them. I don't even think that we take the time to realize and acknowledge to ourselves just how lucky we are.

I find myself being so upset and torn up about things that, I think at that moment, will just ruin my life. It takes a while sometimes to realize that my life is made up of so much more than whatever that was that was consuming my thoughts at that time. My life is more than a job or more than a physical imperfection or more than not having everything that I want. It is so much more.

I have a wonderful husband after having been in a terribly abusive relationship for so many years. I have one of the best Mothers in the entire world. I have two sons (one natural and one adopted) that I was predicted to never have. I have many special family members including in-laws. I have epliepsy, but it is controlled. I finally have a special job that makes me feel as if I am making a difference in this world and not just going through the motions. I could go on and on and on too. I could talk about my friends, my church, etc....

I think that we should take more time to think of all of the things that we have to be greatful and thankful for. We can all probably come up with quite a list.
