I am blessed

This just makes me smile. So I thought I'd share
Roxie, the rocket, in mid agility leap

Every day I've gotten a wonderful message from someone in our little community. A little voice of support, a virtual hand at my elbow.

While we climb this hill before us, while I struggle through my fear, I'm very grateful for you, reading this, lending me your prayers, your support, your encouragement.

I'll be trying to post more often, I feel ready to talk again, but I wanted you to know that your presence hear has yanked me through an opening I was just peeking through.

You're right, of course. Staying calm on my frightened horse is an incredible metaphor; perhaps even a message if you believe in these things (I do) for how I'm to get through this.

And, in the company of friends and family, we will get through it.

Thank you for being here for me.

Always,

Winter

Yes, you ARE blessed. The road isn't always straight and flat, and life isn't always fair - but we muddle through with the help of our friends, family and faith. Prayers going up for you!

I'm glad that things are looking brighter even if it's only a little bit, it's a start and that's a good thing.

Hang in there!

Being able to recognize you are blessed even in the midst of upheaval means you have what it takes to get thru it. Thinking of you and hoping your better days come soon....
