I also had a very touching moment on my birthday that meant a great deal to me.

I was leaving work when I stopped at a crosswalk to let someone pass.

It was a young man zooming along, strapped into his wheelchair headed off somewhere but it had a strong impact on me.

I might not have everything I want in my life but I am so very very lucky.  Looking at this man I realized I am so incredibly healthy, really I am.  And I have such a rich life.  I have a good job, I have a place I live, a vehicle, I have an income that allows me to be safe and warm and fed.  I have great friends, a loving family.  I am really blessed and lucky and so thankful.

I think that was a wonderful way to go into these next years / part of my life.  I have so much.

So much.

Thank you for this. We (for sure I) get so hung up in our day to day issues and frustrations that we (I again) don't stop long enough to be thankful. And I have a lot to be thankful for...loving spouse and family, healthy parents (heart surgery aside), good paying job (won't say great job), no money issues, food on the table, able body...the list goes on...and it pretty embarassing to be honest.

Thank you for making think of the list. I am truly blessed.
