Count Your Blessings

Not a day goes by where I don't give thanks for my newly found mobility.  What amazes me is that my daughters haven't forgotten what my inabilities used to be either.  Yesterday morning I ran to answer the phone in the kitchen and Winona smiled at me and said, "You couldn't have done that two years ago, Mommy."    

I love that my girls get so excited whenever I'm about to try something new.  I hope that they apply this to their own lives and cheer on not only their friends, but themselves as well.  Take a moment today and make a mental list of what you appreciate in life.  You may even surprise yourself  by how many little things you have that you wouldn't change for any amount of money in the world.

Today I peeled an orange with my hands.  I didn't have to use a knife or ask someone to do it for me.  This is a first!  I love that Sharon was there to experience this with me.  Her eyes got really big when I told her it was the first time that I peeled an orange.  I guess that would seem kinda silly considering I'm 35 years old!
