    I'm so much better then a year ago,

    at this time. It's amazing how much can change in a year. Sometimes change can be bad but for me, change has been much needed progress. Thanks be to God. I am truly blessed!!

    Met a great guy, had a glass of wine with him

    at his appartment. I never met someone who understands exactly what I am going through. I enjoyed his company and he made love to me exactly the way I like it without me telling him what I like. It was like we knew each other for a long time.

    I don't think people realize how important it

    is to tell the people you care about that you care about them. To thank them for whatever good they've done for you, to tell them how important their existence is, to even just say you hope they're having a good day; that you're thinking about them, or to just ask them how they...

    So, I had a neat experience today.

    I was at Right Aid getting supplies for a bake sale. I told the cashier I didn't have a Wellness Card, but the lady behind me asked if she could put in her card for me. Needless to say, this small act of kindness was rather touching and appreciated. Makes me excited to see...

    Men. As we enter into this holiday season,

    do not forget to be thankful for any woman in your life and all that she does for you. Never take her for granted. She is a precious gift that is to be treasured. Show her the appreciation and care that she deserves. And never compare her cooking to your mothers or any box...

    I woke up in a bed knowing I would have food

    today. I didn't wake up in a war zone. I wasn't in pain, in a prison, in a hospital. What are you thankful for?

    Today my car broke down on the side of the road.

    And as I was standing there panicking on the highway a guy pulled over and totally fixed my car and changed my tire. Literally broke down and a mechanic drove by. Seriously thank you random citizen for your kindness. :)

    I don't really complain much

    because I've been in many situations where I had nothing. no home, no family to help me, no friends, no money, nothing. So I've learned to love what I have and appreciate it for what it is. You never know when you might lose everything.
