count your blessings.....

I read of someone who lost his wife over the weekend in a car accident...and then I read of someone who is anxiously awaiting her husband to come home for a two week military leave, and then to GO BACK. What in the world do I have to complain about?? Absolutely nothing. Love your family and friends...we are not promised tomorrow. Have an excellent day.

Amen! That's why I tell my babies and Hubby about 47 times a day that I love them and my mom and dad every time I talk to them.

You are SO right! Wonder what we could get accomplished if we took the time and energy we spend complaining and applied them to something worthwhile? Oh, boy!

A great reminder, Suzanne!

You are absolutely right! I have an internet friend that I have kept in touch with since 1998. We had websites years ago. Well, a few weeks ago, she got the news that she has an agressive form of cancer of the uterus. I am so sad because it has been like having a friend right here in the house with me. We email, send snail mail, and talk on the phone. We just do not know what tomorrow will bring. A young mother in our area had a 3 month old baby in a car seat. We were have really bad storms here in NC and she ran off the road and the car turned over. The baby came out of the car seat and was found 200 yards away in a stream of water.
Love,
Marie

So much to be thankful for and I don't want to take it for granted for one minute. We all needs these little reminders, Suzanne. Thanks for that.
