life's blessings

I keep telling myself that 2007 is just not starting off well.

You have to admit, it's been a crappy year so far. A lot of illness, death, and stress due to work and personal issues have cropped up.

But today, I'm going to make it a point to enjoy life's blessings. Why? Because part of my morning was spent reading about a wife's pain after her husband was injured in Iraq. The soldier lost two limbs in combat. He also lost two friends in the explosion. The amazing strength the wife exhibited is inspirational. So not to spoil a good read, I will share this -- after a long road to recovery, the couple is now expecting their first child!

So there will be no today's bad. For as much as all of us complain about this and that, we really all are blessed.
today's good: Amara has another photo shoot today. I've been lagging behind in sending the agency current Bean pics, but I had to laugh when the agent called and ask, "So does Amara look Asian?!?!" Good times.
