Zipity-doo-dah! Yep, I'm totally corn-pone when I'm kookie happy. I'm really liking my life right now and am spending a lot of time thanking and praising the Lord for helping me turn my life around. I'm really excited about the two spiritual groups I'm starting at church: the recovery Bible study and the Al-Anon group. I'm super-psyched that I'm on a roll with physical exercise multiple times a week (swimming and physical therapy), often with my good friend Thea for company. I have so much work coming in that I'm thinking of hiring someone to help me. And I'm really happy that I now have a "safe" eating plan in Weight Watchers. It's like a food compass that I can always come back to when I get off track, and my Chew gets the best of me. Ive decided to start a beauty blog after all, which should be a lot of fun. My family relationships are good after being bad for such a long time (forgiveness and amends-making has worked wonders), and I am truly happy to be in my own skin at this time in my life, i..e, my 50s!

None of it would have come true without the help of God and Jesus and my willingness to do the "legwork." It dawned on me the other day that I consider God to be a Magic-8 Ball or a genie in a bottle. I pray and pray (and wish and wish) for my prayers to be answered, and then -- later -- I catch up to the fact that I have to put one foot in front of the other, often walking blindly, and step out in faith, trusting that my Higher Power is walking in front of me, opening the doors that I'm supposed to walk through!

What doors are you walking through right now? I'd love to know!
