I'm not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. But I have to remember that I have so many people and parts of my life to be grateful for. I am the first to allow myself to sink down in despair and guilt and pity. But God has a plan for me. And this is part of it. And I have family and friends and coworkers that count on me and appreciate me. I have my talents, my skills, and my health is improving finally. I am thankful for what I have and for the strength to face trials.
