I am loved...



I am Loved....



I am loved, even when I bark. I am loved even when I'm not loveable. I am loved even when I forget and whine that I'm not. I am loved which is a surprise to me (I have a hard time accepting that I am worthy). I want those that love me to know that they are loved in return and I know I don't say it enough. Remember I am that crusty old broad, but I love you all, so much I think my heart will burst.

I am blessed and at times not grateful. I have health, comfort, love, smiles, creativity, beauty around me; my blessings are too many to attempt to name them all. I don't feel I deserve them, but I am living an abundant life and today will remember to be grateful. I will be extra patient at work, with those that may be stressed by the Holiday pressures. I will remember to take extra time driving, so that I won't take on others stress behind the wheel. I will smile even if the smile isn't returned. I will pet my cat, take my dogs for a walk, tell my family how much they mean to me. I won't wait until a special occasion; today is the day that I have! Carpe Diem! Seize the day! I will hold the door for someone; no matter if they are grateful or not. I will look at the sky and remember God is the most amazing artist! I will look at myself and attempt to be humble; seeing my gifts and detriments. I will take joy in the simplest of tasks, being grateful that I have the ability to do whatever is in front of me. I will sit still and hear the quiet, remembering my lost family and friends. I will rejoice at the sound of my husband saying good morning and always getting my coffee ready for me, even when I don't do it in kind as much as I should.


I will attempt to not wait for my turn to talk, but really listen and hear what is being said to me. I will accept others choices and not impose my will on to them.



In short I will live my life today; to the fullest and not complain if someone was less than grateful for some kindness I may have done. I am grateful for my life and wish everyone a wonderful day, today, tomorrow, and always.



I wish everyone only SWEET Pickles! Thanks so much Ashley...Merry Christmas!
