I'm Back

I really enjoyed the time with my friends. It was good to have no responsibility for the last few days. I feel my mood is beginning to improve and I am less depressed than I have been. The new medication seems to be helping. We are still not at a therapeutic dose, but I am encouraged and more hopeful than I have been in months. I am going to keep busy this weekend to help with my mood.

I want to thank everybody for all the encouragement they have given me. I am so thankful for all my cyber friends. Today it is easier to see all the things I have to be thankful for. My therapist has encourage me to make a gratitude journal. I think here is a great place to do it.
  1. I am thankful for all my friends that have stood beside me in thick and thin.
  2. I am thankful for my loving daughter Alice,
  3. I am thankful for the time I had with Chris.
  4. I am thankful for enough food to eat.
  5. I am thankful for my home.
  6. I am thankful for my psychiatrist and therapist.
  7. I am thankful for my extended family.
  8. I am thankful that God loves me in spite of all my faults.
  9. I am thankful that my car is still running.
  10. I am thankful that I got a small tax return and did not have to pay the government.

Good to hear from you! I keep telling a friend people who don't get a break are like machines that don't rest. Sometimes, they break down. Praying that you will get a break from life's rut often & rejuvenate you. To have a thankful attitude no matter how tough of a trial one faces is a powerful proof of His strength! It is God's gift...and His will...for us to remain joyful at all times. God bless & may you always be strong in His mighty power!

Good to see you back, Wanda. I"m just getting back into the swing of things, other than SS. Lots of changes going on over here in my end of the world.

Anyway, so glad to hear you enjoyed your time away. Goodness helps heal and mend one's heart.

Big hugs

Joyful that you are moving past this season with a heart of gratitude...each year for fifteen years upon the day of my oldest son's death, I leave that season with more gratitude...for friends, family and a God that loves me so much ... and has carried me past the death of my son, Craig....I look back "way back" and see only one set of footprints....
