Life is Hard.........

Life is so hard sometimes. Sick Moms, injured kids, surgeries to look forward to, kids struggling to stay solvent, worrying about jobs and money and illness, stress at work, getting along with family...............How do I stay sane? The only thing that comes to mind is Counting My Blessings. 1. I have the most loving, understanding, compassionate husband in the world. He listens to me gripe, gives me sound advice, treats me like a queen, cooks for me AND cleans up! 2. Everyone in my immediate family still has a job. Some may have jobs that are more precarious than others, but they are jobs nonetheless. 3. Good doctors are taking care of sick family members. There is hope for their recoveries. 4. I have a brother and sister-in-law who are my very good friends. My brother would do anything for me.....and often does. 5. My children are happy. They have good people in their lives and are wonderful people in their own right. 6. I have a job that is interesting and varied. I like (most) of the people I work with. 7. I have a grand-daughter that puts more laughter into my life than anything else. She is the light of my life. 8. Hubby and I have enough money for adventures. We're not rich by any stretch of the imagination, but we do okay and get to go off for a weekend every now and again. 9. I'm almost afraid to mention this one.....but we haven't had any touch of the F.L.U. in our family. Hope I didn't jinx us. 10. I have two wonderful parents.....and I'm so thankful for every day I have with them.
