go rHappy Anniversary (Cont.)

Continued from below........

I also want to celebrate my wonderful family and friends that have stuck by me and have been there for me even though I was not myself for awhile.  You know who you are.  I tell you again and again how much I love you :-)  Life is just so much better with you in it!!  I have started reading a book called "Full Catastrophe Living".  It is a wonderful book that shows you how to use your body AND mind to face pain, stress and illness.  It is an eight-week course.  It opens up your mind to enjoy even mundane tasks as well as the beautiful things in life, always being in the present and being mindful.  It teaches you meditation (which I have done, and loved, for years) and some yoga.  I recommend the book to anyone who wants to lower their stress and slow down and enjoy their day a bit more.  The present is all we have.  I think we buy in too easily to the myth that things will get better in the future only if......  That is a scary, scary thing to fall into.  Today is a gift!  Now I am signing off to go enjoy my day.  I can't wait to see what it has in store for me.  Wishing all of you a very special, wonderful day full of special, little moments!
