There are times I feel blessed beyond measure, and this week has been one of those times. It seems the blessings don't stop flowing and I am so very grateful. Not very long ago I felt undeserving of so many good things. I felt guilt whenever I received too much remembering all of those who are less fortunate. I often felt that I should have less. And I always waited for the other shoe to drop, wondering when a terrible thing would happen to balance the good. And one day a wise woman told me that she was surprised I felt that way, she said that all the wonderful things that happened in her life felt like blessings from God - there is no deserving or undeserving, but just a gentle reminder to express gratitude. How fortunate we are to live where we do, and how we do. That we have choices and health and food and family and joy. That those who don't have this would give almost anything for it. Those old thought patterns seem so negative now. And so now I am just thankful, and very, very happy.
