Last November I made a point in each blog post that month to name something that I was thankful for. I try to remain grateful for everything I have but real life has a way of narrowing our view at times and I can't be the only one who loses sight of what we do have.
With my doctor's appointment over and good news I received I found myself pretty reflective today. As I got out of the shower this morning and stared at my naked body in the mirror, I rubbed my stomach and thought "I think I love food too much to weigh under 120..." And for once that thought didn't make me hate myself.
I thought about weighing over 300 pounds and how grateful I would have been then to magically be made 150 pounds - let alone the 123 that I weighed this morning.
I have a home, a husband who loves me, and SO MANY MORE blessings in my life. I can't get complacent, of course, but with that birthday fast approaching I think i could use a little more gratitude.
