Twelve blessings of Christmas

1. My sons. They are truly the lights of my life. They make me smile when I am sad, their hugs warm my heart and their laughter makes even the worst day better.

2. My husband. He loves me, even with my many flaws. He stands by me and is there for me.

3. My home. A place to keep me warm and dry in the winter and cool in the summer. A place that holds many memories...good and bad. A place where I feel safe always.

4. My Mom. All we have is each other these days and I can't imagine life without her.

5. My job. As much as it drives me crazy with stress sometimes, I am thankful for the ability to work from home for a company that has been good to me for fifteen years next month. I have some friends at work that I love dearly and am grateful for fantastic co-workers as well.

6. My health. Although some days, I feel like a 90 year old, I, for the most part, have my health. I am grateful for both my health and for the health of my family.

7. My friends. I have a handful of friends who I know I can call ANY time...day or night and they will be there for me. A few of those friends have fallen through the spaces between my fingers and remain aquaintances, but the few that are still in my hand mean the world to me.

8. My internet friends. I have many friends, from places all over the world...Canada, USA, England, Germany, Japan, Australia, Israel...I am blessed to have them in my life and love them like I do my real life friends.

9. My blog. I love to have this place to come and share things. My blog is my therapy and I am grateful for this place to vent, yell, scream, laugh and cry.

10. My church. I have found such comfort and love in this place. I feel welcome whenever I walk in the door and I have learned so much from the Sunday services and the Alpha course. I am so happy to have a place to go and pray and be prayed for.

11. Hope. I finally have hope that I will one day be a truly happy person. I am on my way, thanks to the last few months and some real soul searching. I still have hard days, but they are MUCH fewer and farer (is that a word) between. :)

12. God. He's been here all along, waiting for me, but I FINALLY let Him in. My gosh, what was life without Him? What a waste of 41 years...hopefully, He and I can make up for the last 41 with a FANTASTIC 41 more! Pin It
