-I have a roof over our heads and safe place to live
-I have a husband who loves me and is there for me when depression and anxiety over take me.
-I have a smart, healthy, beautiful daughter who is absolutely amazing
-I have a great school to send my daughter to during the weekday when I am at work. The poele there are kind and caring and helping my daughter to grow into a wonderful human being.
-I have a job that challenges me and has pushed me to grow in ways I didn't know I could and will help me in my next position
-My husband is employed and his job provides the health insurance we need and the extra money to afford to pay our bills
