I have spent a lot of my life being depressed and wishing I had things that I didn't. Today I want to just concentrate on what I have. I have two great kids and six great cats and a nice little house. All my bills are paid and I keep my house and yard nice and neat. I have a computer and a job and enough money to get by. I am going back to school this fall to finish my degree. I'm 51 and I can still walk and swim quite a distance and lift weight. I haven't accomplished a lot of things I wanted to, but all this I have accomplished 100% by myself. My flowers are blooming in the yard and I planted them myself. So I'm happy enough today. There's a lot of difficult things in my life, but I'm happy enough.
