richie rich!

Sometimes I wonder how I came to be so blessed. What could I have ever done to deserve all this? The answer, of course, is nothing. I didn't do anything to deserve the blessings that fill my life. I certainly have a past riddled with bad mistakes and many wrong decisions. I'm thankful I didn't get what I deserved.

Yet here I am, enjoying a rich and fulfilling life. We are by no means monetarily wealthy, but we have enough to get by and for that I am thankful. I found a good man to marry, which is a rare find these days. I know that I can count on him to provide for his family. I enjoy a marriage filled with mutual respect, lots of love, and unending trust. I have a gorgeous, smart, and healthy daughter who has brought so much joy and love into my life. I am pregnant with our second little one, a miracle in itself. To have been blessed with one child is amazing, but two? Now that's rich!! We have a roof over our heads, and I can truly say that we have everything we need. I never worry where my next meal will come from or how we will pay the bills. My family and I enjoy the benefits of good health. I live in a place that is almost like a dream with its majestic views and wonderful quality of life. And I live in America, a land that is free!

When I think about these and all the other many blessings in my life, I know there is never anything I could have done to deserve such things. I'm just thankful.
