    I am grateful that I have the time to be still

    with myself and work on myself. And that I don't have children, even though I love kids, I think they are amazing and I love how they interact with the world. I just don't want any of my own.

    Grateful

    I have reached a difficult road in my life's journey.  I appear to be deep inside of a very dark tunnel.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but it is quite distant.  The pain that I am enduring is my sole experience.  Hugs and kisses can't save me...

    More Than Grateful

    I'm grateful for everything that is good in my life: my vision, my loved ones, life itself, and so forth. Although I'm grateful for everything I have, a part of me still wants more.
