Being away from my family and community for so long is hard. That is an understatement. But getting the chance to go back and spend some time there sure puts things in perspective. I really have a sense of gratitude for my blessings:
~ my husband who is the love of my life – always supportive, always loving, my best friend and companion.
~ my dogs – their sweet faces warm my heart – their love is constant, their ability to live in the moment is something I am jealous of.
~ my cottage – I love it so – I waited a long, long time to have my own house and there is not a day that goes by that I am not profoundly grateful for it.
~ my family – they ground me – they love me with no reservations as I do them.
~ my friends both near and far – whether we are in touch once a year or every day.
~ the opportunity to work here in San Diego – using my skills to help others and doing what I do best.
~ all the possibilities, dreams and goodness in the universe.
~ my blog and all the wonderful friends I have made this last year – I treasure you.
