I agree with you, Jeanne. It took me a lot of years of struggling with depression to see it, but now I realize that all of us who deal with this and keep moving forward are tough cookies. Like Kitt said, we're survivors. And because of my ups and downs, I've learned to appreciate a lot of the so-called "little things" in life that some people might take for granted. I'm so grateful to be able to walk outside and feel the wind in my face, to see the sun rise every day, and to share time with people I care about......and finding something positive, even on my darkest days, is a real accomplishment to me and gives me a sense of hope. Thanks for posting what you did.....it's good food for thought.
