Posting a Gratitude Blog posting

I have a private gratitude blog I keep that is very private. After reading a comment made after one of my entries in that blog; I decided that maybe this is one I should copy and post here on my public blog! The original date I entered this is my other blog is April 19th. Hope you'll all enjoy it!

(Copied from private gratitude blog)
I was just thinking today of how lucky I am to experience everything that I'm experiencing. I've gotta do a gratitude blog after thinking about all this while I worked.
  1. I'm so grateful for Jenny Craig. I think without it, my health was so bad, it's possible I wouldn't still be alive by now.
  2. I'm grateful to be alive and experiencing a life that is nothing short of miraculous. I've got two cochlear implants, lost 225 pounds, found love in my heart and joy in every minute and with whomever I encounter.
  3. I'm grateful to Dick who's fatal journey and how he lived it was so inspirational to me, it made my current journey and life possible.
  4. I'm grateful that I can walk several miles without oxygen, get down on the floor and back up with no problem, can fit regular seats, can 4 wheel in the desert, fit on a 4 wheeler, climb up a mountain, flirt with fun male friends, interact with just about everyone without shyness.
  5. I'm grateful for the search to learn and to grow and the results and profound change that journey has been.
  6. I'm grateful that I believe and live as if there are endless possibilities ahead and dreams that I can reach.

A gratitude blog--what a great person you are and what a great example you set! I had to speak in a stake conference today, and I didn't feel very grateful about it until I sat down on the stand and looked out at so many people I knew and loved... THEN my heart changed and I felt grateful for the opportunity and the experience.

Wow Ann - What a fantastic journey you have been on! I find it extremely encouraging! I am grateful that I found your corner of the internet here. I have tagged your blog to read regularly!

I am grateful for many things and as I just said, I am grateful to finding you here. I am going to come back and use your documented pictures to inspire me and 'hold my feet to the fire' so I can accomplish what you have!

Thank you so much!

Be Well.
