I am what I am!

Despite the fact that you read a lot here about my disappointments and things that I don’t like about my life, I was reminded once again how grateful I am for everything that is me.  I’m grateful for the good and the bad.  I’m grateful for the gloriously perfect days and those that are filled with struggle and turmoil.  I am the sum total of all those varied parts and if I had to change places with anyone else, for more than just an hour or two, I have to say that I’m pretty sure I would just want to be me–flaws and all.

Besides–if I didn’t have all these things I’m working on, whatever would I do?


Hope you are all having a great day.  Here’s the little reminder that I got today that brought me down this particular path.  Enjoy!


Today you are you.
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
that is you-er than you.
Shout aloud “I am glad to be what I am.
Thank goodness I’m not a ham or a clam
Or a dusty old bottle of gooseberry jam.
I am what I am.
What a great thing to be!
If I say so myself
