WHY ME?

Why do I have a nice warm house?

Why do I have a passion for quilting AND the time to enjoy it?

Why do I have a husband that is still my best friend?

Why do I have three kids that became awesome adults and found awesome mates?

Why have I been blessed with five beautiful, healthy grandchildren?

Why do I have a husband who has always striven to make my dreams come true?

Why do I have a husband that deals with his MS with grace and a sense of humor?

Why did I have two parents that loved each other and raised me and my siblings by example? In spite of the fact that a common momism was "do as I say, not as I do!", all we had to do to learn to live right was to follow their example.

Why do I have so many siblings, all of whom I love to be around?

Why am I healthy?

Why me?

I don't know.

But I sure am thankful.

As with all of life's ups and downs, we can choose to focus on the blessings or the problems. Focusing on the blessings, no matter how hard life or our circumstances may be, gives us a positive outlook and enables us to conquer anything. Thanks for the reminder!

Kath, you are an amazing, gracious, humble and talented person. We'd be wise to take your lead in being thankful. And yes, we are so blessed. Miss you, Jo
