How cute are these Easter Pooter butts?


365 Days of Gratitude


Today, September 27, 2017, I am grateful for gaining a better understanding of how monstrous my upbringing was and how it impacted my life. It was impossible for me to have turned out any other way than I did. I was on the fast track to alcoholism and addiction from the very second my parents conceived me.
This is one of the reasons I am so grateful to have been born in the States. I cannot help but wonder that if I had been born elsewhere, could I have survived? How many others are there like me who didn't?

I do have much to be grateful for. I am alive and I work hard to make my life better as best I can, every single day.

What are you grateful for? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!

Does this ever bring back lots of memories!




365 Days of Gratitude


Today, Tuesday, September 26, 2017, I am grateful for being strong enough to fully accept the fact that I have been officially diagnosed with Complex PTSD. Years ago, when I was finding out about the health problems I had that led to being disabled, I would withdraw. Every time I went to the doctor, I would be told about more health problems I had. I stopped going for a long time. My life was very lonely then. I had friends, but I didn't feel real support from anyone.

Now, today, I do. I feel surrounded by real and genuine friends. Happily, we are part of each other's lives. That gives me the strength and self-respect I need to hold my head high and keep moving forward.

What are you grateful for today? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!

Today, Thursday, 9/21/2017, I am grateful for digital timers! I set one up to turn off my router and modem every night and then back on in the morning. When I am ready for bed and settled in, I don't want to have to get up and go to my living room to unplug them. I am excited and hopeful that this works smoothly!!

Today, Wednesday, September 20, 2017, I am grateful for my hair. I have a decent head of hair and I love it. It is straight, long and has a pretty color. Over the years, I have learned to appreciate it's straightness rather than moan because for many years I would have to set it in beer or get a perm for it to curl.
