Counting every day blessings has been fun for me. It has caused me to focus on all that is good in my life and to thank God.
But I recently hit a snag!
This week is all about moving. I have to admit that I allowed myself to wallow in self-pity for a time. Instead of being grateful, I spent too much time thinking about what I've lost over the past few years.
I remembered that it was two years ago to the day, that I had to leave my dream home. This was how our house looked on March 13, 2010.
We sold our furnishings.
What we didn't count on was new visitors each day.
And now, it's time to move ...again! But this time it will be to an 860 square foot place closer in to town and work and family.
Have I mentioned I don't enjoy change?
I am so grateful for friends who reminded me of things I needed to hear.
My friend Terri reminded me that she grew up in a one bedroom apartment in Queens with her parents and those were some of the happiest times in her life.
My friend Ruth lives in New York City. She wrote: " That's bigger than the average Manhattan one-bedroom (750 sq ft). And my friend lives in a 450 sq ft studio in The Village."
