Count your blessings
I sometimes forget how blessed I am
Looking through posts about people's lives and where they live it seems that everybody is searching for something unattainable.
That was me until a few months ago when I was given some news that shook the foundation of my life and made me reassess everything and what is important.
Do I have lots of money? Nope
Do I have lots of expensive things? Nope
Do I have designer clothes? Nope
Do I have a top of the range car? Nope
Do I have a high powered job? Nope
Do I have Holidays abroad? Nope
In the past I could have answered yes to several of these questions and I did think of myself as blessed but now I know that these had nothing to do with my blessings.
There are a lot of things people measure blessings by when they tot up their life. I have been forced into a situation where I have to figure out what really matters.
I have a wonderful husband - my soul mate and best friend.
I have three beautiful children who make me more proud every day than I would have thought possible.
I have three beautiful grandchildren who have captured my heart in a totally new way and give me a second chance at mothering in a way.
I have two beautiful dogs who are funny and loving and intuitive.
I live in a truly beautiful area of the English countryside in a small town where the pace of life is nice and slow.
I have fantastic friends that I would give my life for.
I have peace in my heart.
Yes I may be facing something awful but I still think I'm one of the most blessed people on earth, and as long as I keep wearing the rubber knickers I will always bounce back ;oD
