Gifts

I certainly don't regret my experiences because without them, I couldn't imagine who or where I would be today. Life is an amazing gift to those who have overcome great obstacles, and attitude is everything!

It has been quite the week. I'm now waiting for final word that my car is going to totaled as it was more damaged then first appeared. So it looks like I'm getting a Christmas gift of a new vehicle. I hadn't planned for it and was upset at first because I was just about to pay off the car. But then I've had the Jeep Patriot I eventually want on my manifestation board for a year or so. Like a friend reminded me, sometimes what seems a curse or problem is really a blessing/gift and it always doesn't always come wrapped in a neat box. He's right and by looking at the positives of this experience it can become a gift. So if all works out in the next several days, I may be a Jeep girl soon.

It's my father's birthday today. He's 72. I called him in Michigan to wish him a Happy Birthday and to reminisce. So many of my friends have lost parents in the last few years. It's a gift to still have him here.

Last night I had the gift of friends while we made cookies and shared a meal. So many are my gifts and Christmas hasn't even arrived. Not all people in the world have these gifts for them I hope for the gift of better days to come.
