I am blessed
I am healthy
I have a beautiful, loving, healthy wife who makes every trip to the store feel like an adventure and tolerates my diversion in grad school that accomplishes nothing so much as feeding my vanity and making me happy
I have a ramshackle lean-to that we both enjoy working on.
I am blessed
I have healthy, happy parents and a sister who I truly consider friends as much as family
I have a pair of golden retrievers who treat my returns home as if they're the second coming of the Lord
I am blessed
I have a job that I enjoy and (I think) I do relatively well
I have a lot of options should this job fail to keep my interest
I am blessed
I have a bike that is much nicer than my riding ability would justify and which my wife encouraged me to buy.
I have an unlimited supply of Van Morrison in the CD collection should my mood ever sour.
I am blessed
I have Southern California's climate and Margarita on our pool deck whenever I want
I have the ability to ride in every month of the year
I am blessed
I have a crazy chat board that's lousy with interesting cyclists and never fails to make me smile
I have a crazy chat board that's lousy with interesting cyclists and never ceases to make me feel as though there are a multitude of strangers out there who aren't so strange and who sincerely care for people they've never met in person
I am blessed

I have a lot of things in my life that frustrate me, anger me, depress me, make me feel helpless, make me wish for something better. But whenever I feel the weight of those things, I remind myself of the many. many ways that I am blessed.

Anybody else blessed out there?

(sorry about the sappy post. This stuff has been roiling around in me for a while, and I wanted to share some of it)

I have a beautiful, incredibly bright, and insightful son.

I am alive, with a roof, food, employment, and transportation.

I'm "blessed" with many incredible friends, all over the country--you guys.

If it weren't for this forum, I would not have been "found" by my mentor.

Is it getting warm in here, or is it just me? ;)
