I'm driving to work yesterday morning. I have my dog in the car because I am taking her to doggie day care for the day. (Yes my dog is my child). I'm thinking about my dog and life and thinking that I really take my pet ownership, my marriage and my life seriously and want to give it 100%. I don't quite reach the 100%, but I try my hardest.

All of a sudden I say "Thank you God for making me the person that I am". I was stunned that that sentence came from me. It almost made my cry. It has taken me to 51 years of age to be happy with the person I am inside and out. Don't get me wrong, I am far from perfect and like everyone can still use some improvements on both sides but I have actually accepted my self for who I am.

You never know the path life leads you on but self-acceptance is one I never imagined being on. Anything is truly possible.

    We have to accept ourselves if no one else does. I'm glad you have experienced the joy of that!

    God works in mysterious and wonderful ways when we open our hearts and life to Him. Here is a secret: You can not love God until you learn to love others; you can not love others until you learn to love yourself. We can't change who we are, but we can change what we are and to whom we belong. May God Bles You Always, Vic, Team Leader of SP "God's Family".
