Week 13- Tough week for homework, but have gratitude for all I have done and all I am about to do

Family get-togethers, family calls, skyping and another family get-together that has step-son and family in for three days, probably for the last time for years to come. They are expecting their fourth child this March and it’s getting tougher and tougher to move the kids enforce. So we have been happy and busy- cooking, cleaning, doing dishes and watching precious little people. For this family, I am grateful.

I was adopted at weeks of age by wonderful parents and had two wonderful sisters growing up. I couldn’t have grown up in a better family. One of my sisters in growing up was also adopted. Then along came our youngest sister to a couple that didn’t think they would have any of their own. They were 38 and 39 when my sister and I were adopted and 40 with their first born. For this family, I am grateful.

I found birth relatives about 6 years ago. There were two half sisters, a half brother and a full brother, nieces and nephews that I still see and knowledge of my birth parents that seems beyond just interesting. For this family, I am grateful.

Soooo, off to my newest growth…and another family.

Og gets done, sits are about 15 minutes before and after everyone goes to bed and cards need to be finished and gone through two, three or many times each day. Soooo, new start. Thought on DMP is ever present upon awakening, during my day, before sleep and each time I wake at night. It’ just always there. That’s pretty neat! That’s there and negatives that were constantly my thoughts are seldom felt. Oh, I’ve started my 7 day mental diet each and every day and sometimes several times a day. But my overpowering thoughts have changed. The diet is having effect. The long-time oppressive thoughts are not obsessive. They are fleeting. Haanel, Mark J, the Fabulous Davene and guides have put the Keys together in a way that fits for me. It is working.

I am noticing small things. I have heard for years about writing a gratitude list…and never did it. It just wasn’t in me to find a lot to be grateful for. That’s where I was. There was no escaping, but I just knew there was… somewhere down deep… I just knew there was. And along comes MKMMA and it is here. For this I am grateful.

Thank you…for all I have done… and all I am about to do.

To be continued…
