One Moment, One Ounce, At a Time, Just For Today

Today there is a snowstorm in New Jersey, January 3, 2014. God has blessed me with a brand new year. I pray that with his love and guidance I make the most of it.

I am nearing the end of 2013, it is Thanksgiving Day. With God's Grace and Eternal Blessings I have been able to walk down and up the 12. Steps; (very significant for it to be 12); in my home that leads from my bedroom to the Livingroom/Kitchen/Laundry room downstairs several times a day. Quite an accomplishment for me in my post stroke recovery thus far. Thank You Jesus, ThankYou Lord.

I have significant anniversaries this year, 2013. August 17th will be the 3rd Anniversary of my Stroke , October will be 3rd Anniversary of learning to walk again and December 23rd will be the 3rd Anniversary of my return home from the Rehab Center where I recuperated from my Stroke.

I'm here to get healthier. Moreso now than when I joined in 2008. God has been good to me helping me find Sparkpeople and saving me when I had a Stroke in August, 2010. I am grateful for His love, mercy and blessings.

Dear God help me remember that every day is a gift and a blessing. Help me be forever grateful for each day, as each day is another chance to do better, to get it right this time. Help me be always mindful of that fact and to cleave to You, listen to You and be guided by Your direction and instruction in my daily comings and goings. I ask this of You in Jesus' name, for Christ sakes, if it be Thy will, Amen.

Affirmations: I Am Grateful, Thankful, Healthy, Wealthy, Wise, Happy,Joyous, Free, Fair, Firm, and Consistent.

Thank you for the warm welcome to the meditation and mindfulness team. Your kindness is much appreciated! I'm sure you have been told this many times, but you have the most beautiful, welcoming smile! When I clicked on your Sparkpage, it was the first thing I saw and then found myself smiling back. Best of luck on your journey! emoticon
