A dozen things I’m grateful for

Just off the top of my head, in no particular order:

  1. My two, beautiful, healthy, ‘normal’ children (who drive me crazy sometimes).
  2. My thirteen year old BMW (a ‘tokunbo’ buy that runs as smoothly as ever).
  3. The inordinate, overwhelming amount of support and non-judgment that I have always felt from my family, friends, and church.
  4. That I was a single parent long before I officially became a single parent (made my transition to divorce much ‘easier’ and less scary than it might have been).
  5. My health.
  6. Employment.
  7. This blog! (a much-needed outlet; a life-saver)
  8. My treadmill.
  9. A place to call home.
  10. (for women with BIG feet like me, who can’t find decent shoes anywhere).
  11. My close relationship with my sisters.
  12. My optimism (I really believe tomorrow will be even better than today).


  1. Yes oh! Our tomorrows are better than our yesterdays as we put our present in His hand and co-operate with Him to determine a more glorious future.

  2. Grateful for your blog, too! It's so great to read really good writing that actually means something, in this day and age where everybody and their mama's a blogger- yours truly, included. :)

    1. Oh, thank you so much. Lol - you're a great blogger.
