Taking things for granted

I try really hard not to take things for granted, but still it creeps up on you...

You know, being grateful that your kids are really great, your husband is a saint for putting up with you, your friends are angels for the very same reason...

You know, that kind of stuff.

So today is one of those days when I just want to let everyone who is a part of life know how deeply I appreciate all that they give to me day in and out.

A little cyber card to say thanks to all of you!

It is an interesting board check for me when I have dear friends who have troubles that are so much harder than my own. When all I can do is let them know that I would do anything in my power for them, and hope with all my heart that if they genuinely needed anything that they would trust in the words I spoke to them, and ask.
I am what my husband and I refer to as a "fixer" and that is not always a good thing. I just so desperately want things to be right for everyone all the time. I know that it is an impossibility, it is just the way I tick. But, honestly, how many of us as women aren't that way? Very few I am sure. Just so hard to step away and let it transpire.
Anyway, just wanted to share a day of gratitude and introspection, thanks for being there for me!
