The blessings in my life:
Not wasting the gift of storytelling.
After a divorce, reconnecting with my childhood sweetheart and having eight of the most wonderful years of my life with him before he died of cancer.
A blessing I never expected oddly enough has come from a social media site – the infamous Facebook. I have the best readers in the world, bar none. Once we connected, they began more than readers. They are my friends. There are so many I will never meet, but I know their stories, and their tragedies. I know their triumphs and their losses, and when I lose one, I grieve the loss of a good friend.
Having lost so many family members, I can state with all my heart that life itself is the true blessing. We come here with a purpose. Not everyone realizes that. Not everyone follows that path. But while we are here, it is our job to do the best we can with what we have, and be the light for those who still stand in the shadows.
It is a blessing to me that I know this, and accept the daily challenge of keeping negativity and anger from my heart.
