I am thankful for all the many blessings in my life. Times are difficult and money limited but things will get better and there are those who are worse off than I am. I am thankful for safety of my child in Iraq and the closeness of my older son as well as relationships with family and friends even though they are not the best.
I'm grateful for the health, and happiness that I share each day with my hubby and our gorgeous 11yo daughter, the close bond I have with my 2 stepsons and their partners, also with my mother and sister in law and her children.
I'm grateful for each new day, watching the sunset and moon rising each night, and the new friends I have made. I look forward to the future and know that everything will work out fine, even though it may not look like it at the time...
