At Thanksgiving, I'm Grateful For Me

Posted on November 22, 2010


Because it didn’t take a lot of loss in my life to make me understand how precious every days is.  And because each birthday is my best gift to myself. 

Because I’m wise enough to know that my children aren’t perfect and wiser still to believe that they really are. 

Because I’m funny.  And, thankfully, funny can be used for a lot more than laughter.  

Because as soon as I stopped being a victim, I knew what power felt like. 

Because I can still read the small lines on menus and I can still read between the lines of what people say and do. 

Because I’ve learned that the only thing I can ever change in my world is me.  And most of the time, that’s all that is needed to change everything else.
