Very good post Kathy. I also count my blessing quite often no matter how I feel. I have a close loving family and even though some of them, especially the younger ones, don't have a clue what I go through I can still enjoy them. My almost 6mo old great grandson put his arms out for me to pick him up Sat morning and I didn't give one thought to what kind of pain it would cause when I picked him up, it was a first, and I wasn't going to pass it up. I had to get my hugs and kisses from my little Chunky Monkey.
Of course I will never know what I would be like at this age if I didn't have all the health problems I have but I do know the little things mean a lot to me now.
luv and hugs
