Gratitude

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." -- Melody Beattie

Thank you sweet friends for your love and thoughts, yesterday! Despite getting body slammed, by the goalie, in my soccer game lat night [another story for another day], I'm doing much better [acupuncture, thank you Kathy]. My life is good, my family is great and my friends are wonderful. By no means am I perfect, but I don't need perfection, I just need happy! Thank you for being part of my happy!

I hope that y'all have a fabulous day!!!!

Sorry you got slammed by the goalie last night, he was probably just way intimidated by your swoll biceps! Love the inspirational quotes too.
Also, just FII I read this whole post in my head at a slightly higher volume, just cause it was bold =)
