their lived a happy family. A mom, a dad and their four very happy children. One day the dad decided that what was important to him had very little to do with what was important to a family. Mom and dad went their separate ways. Mom got everything in the divorce. The four kids, the dogs and all the bills.
Today I chose to be angry.
My ex-husband does not call. He does not pay child support. When we divorced, he might as well have just died.
Today I chose not to feel sorry for myself and instead count my blessings.
1) My children are happy and alive.
2) My parents are alive.
3) My siblings are alive
4) I am buying the house I live in.
5) I have paid all the bills for this month.
6) I live in an area with a good school district.
7) I have reasonably inexpensive health insurance for my kids.
8) I have a job
9) We will not go hungry.
10)My car gets me back and forth to work and anyplace else I want to go.
11)My little girl likes her smile.
12)My kids like each other and choose to be with each other.
13)My family all live within driving distance.
14)I work eight miles from where I live.
15)I found this forum.
16)This can go on and on....
Today I chose to be happy.
