A Seniorism – Grateful For All My Blessings

Published on 10/18/2017

I learned a long time ago it's far more important to appreciate all that I have instead of having all that I want... I think that was the result of losing so many things I mistakenly thought would be a life changing major crisis if I absolutely lost them no matter if they be material things, animal (of which I've lost many in my lifetime) or humans that made a difference in my life, for good or bad...

Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed by situations that are beyond my control I know I must be careful because I slipped into a depression once & I don't ever want to go there again... If I start to feel sad & see myself headed for a pity party I must think about how rough other people have it... I have four grown children... My oldest son learned this week that his stage 4 colon cancer has returned but they caught it early... This means more surgery, he's already had three & each one gets more difficult... My second son passed away in January of this year... My third son just learned he has prostate cancer & my daughter is still in rehab where she is very slowly recovering from a major life threatening stroke... You know what I'm grateful for today? I'm grateful I don't have more kids...

I look at all that's happening in this world today with all the human suffering because of the inhumanities of man towards one another... I also see where our failures of being good stewards of the only place we have to live, our Mother Earth are taking their toll... My prayers on a daily basis are not only for my kids, but for everyone else's kids as well... Each one of us is after all, someone else's child... One of my friends told me that the leading cause of death is birth... It's unavoidable for all of us... I just wish some of it would be more peaceful & painless than others...


  • Yesterday is history,
  • tomorrow's a mystery, today is a gift...
  • That's why it's called The Present... 

As for me? I'm just grateful for The Present...  I'm so very grateful to God & AA...  To God for granting me almost 27 years of sobriety in spite of the trials I've gone through...  I'm a survivor instead of a victim because of The Serenity Prayer that I learned in AA...  That one prayer has given me the strength & the courage to face things like these & yet be able to carry on by The Grace of God...

Signing off 'til next time this is,
