"You've got to spread joy up to the maximum; bring gloom down to the minimum"

BG is 3 months, 1 week and 3 days old.

Judy reminded me not to focus on the negatives and be thankful for the positives. She’s right. I know the negatives can sometimes weigh down a person and there are so many positives I am thankful and blessed with.

I’m blessed with a husband who loves his family. Yes we are having some disagreements of late but I truly believe that we both love each other very much.

I have friends and family who care for me and my baby.

I have a wonderful daughter who wows me everyday with her eagerness and fascination with this big world.

I have caring co-workers and colleagues that makes me thankful.

We just celebrated my daughter’s baptism. I was and am so proud of her.

I have good neighbors that inquiry about us.

I met a great set of moms in the neighborhood who make me feel like I’m not alone entering the mommy zone.

I have a place to share my thoughts, my anxieties, my memories, my joyous moments.

I have a church that is welcoming and comforting.

I have a warm raisin bread to nosh on.

Ooh and my crockpot of beef stew makes my home smell wonderful.
