Blessings

"Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation." Brian Tracy

Another week has flown by in 2018. I am so grateful for the events in my life that have led up to where I am, physically, (living in a place I love) and mentally, (being happy with my life). I am surrounded by people I love and admire, and by surrounded, I do not mean physically close to me, necessarily. 
I have made a lovely group of friends with varied interests, strengths, opinions, and skills. They are all different from each other, and yet, they have many things in common. They are kind, hard working, down to earth, and motivated.
My children are focused on their professions, as well as their hobbies.
My husband has been working hard, as usual, and still keeps me as his priority.
My family, although scattered around the country and Italy, makes an effort to keep in touch and involved in each other's lives.
My in-laws will be reaching a major milestone birthday in a few weeks. They still have a great sense of humor and a will to thrive.
I have been immersed in my artwork. I find it satisfying and rewarding. I have met a good deal of people from all over the world.
I still find my tennis enjoyable, even though we've had a lot of rain and closed courts this week.
There is so much for which I am blessed. And I am grateful each and every day, throughout the day when I notice these wondrous blessings.
