I have the best mom in the whole wide world and the world should be jealous too!

Also, I have to note that despite being sick God has blessed me with amazing weather too. I think it's His way of saying, "It could be worse and because I love you so much I won't push you THAT far...yet."

Health Insurance is a horrible thing to wrestle with too. Amazing how many phone calls one can make while eating lunch in a single half hour. More to do tomorrow!

Amusing stories? None so far and I'm going to count THAT as a blessing too!

Bing Crosby (I'm sure I have his name wrong but he's the one that sings the best version of White Christmas) has it right. It's time to start counting blessings instead of sheep.

Thanks Linda for mentioning Christmas music on her facebook. This song came to mind because of that. :)

When I'm worried and I can't sleep

I count my blessings instead of sheep

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

When my bankroll is getting small

I think of when I had none at all

And I fall asleep counting my blessings

16. Sara is proud of you!

It's amazing that having two jobs is a blessing, but I suppose in a rough economy you're right. I'm happy to hear you've got such a great attitude!

I'm proud of you too... when you put it that way, it really puts things into perspective!!

You got Bing Crosby right ;-)
