I have been thinking alot lately how lucky I am. I am done raising little ones, I have a husband that loves me and I ,him.  I'm not young but i'm not OLD. I'm not rich ,but I'm not poor. If all I got for Christmas are the things I have right now, that's fine with me.

 Along the way there has been almost unbearable sadness and loss But without pain there  IS no pleasure. Without Tragedy there could be no comedy. Without knowing sadness how can you ever know that you are happy? I've had plenty of all of it ,and I'm glad for every bit. It has taught me the meaning of humility that took me to my knees, it has shown me kindness from places I never expected to find it , It has shown me that ,above all, I'll more than likely make it!

Dec. 8, 2007 at 2:25 PM You are a really strong woman being able to do the "happy dance" at 4:43 AM! Baby and I were just getting to bed and hubby up for work. There is NO "happy dance" at my house til 9:30am.
