“Whatever good things we build end up building us.”
~~ Jim Rohn
So actually it was a couple days ago…but my math’s not so good.
The point is that I have written every day for two hundred and forty five days in my blog 365 Days of Silver! I have found at least one thing to be grateful for every single day. I have looked for and found the silver lining in every day.
I’ve been grateful for my ability to write stories and make money doing it
For my publisher–both the company and Elizabeth North, the sweet and brilliant woman who runs it
For the fact that I am gay
To be a citizen of the United States
For good teeth
For my new knees
For skinny dipping
For the ability to accept myself for the way I am (and know I am not “ugly”)
For Midwest Men’s Festival
For delicious food
For my sweet dog Sarah Jane
For my publisher
Gifts of free books from fellow writers
For ripe and delicious peaches
For the passage of same-sex marriage (so now it can be just called marriage)
For being legally married to my man!
For my five senses
For having a home
For finding home in Brookfield, MO, my husband’s home town…and finally found myself loving it
For Spiritual growth
And there’s a whole lot more
So any time I feel tempted to wonder if it’s all worth it…I can look at this blog…and see that my blessings are never ending!
