Tonight I’m counting my blessings.
I am where I am because of the choices I’ve made in my life. Some were good choices, others were not. That is the nature of the beast. Yes, I have regrets. My biggest regrets are that I’ve hurt people along the way. But I won’t hate myself for the wrong turns I’ve made. I’ve apologized. I have and continue to try to right my wrongs and learn from my mistakes. It’s all anyone can do.
But if I’m truthful, I can’t really complain. I have wonderful family and friends. I have my dogs (I adore my dogs!). I have a home, a car, a job. I have memories of loved ones that are gone. Pictures of blessed life hang on my walls of my home.
Every obstacle, every failure, every mistake, every regret has been an integral part of my story. Every smile, every tear, every laugh. It’s all part of the story of me. This is a story I’m not finished writing yet. I’m a work in progress. But I’m excited to continue this story.
I am so blessed.
And with that, I believe it is time for bed.
