Dear Dr. Laura,

I have been listening to you every day on the way home from work, for at least the past year. I really enjoy listening to your point of view. There have been many situations in my life that I have been able to processes and accept, with the help of your advice.

In some instances, I know that we have made the right decision, even if it hurts. I just wanted to share something with you. A while ago, you said that something that made such an impact with me that I actually stopped what I was doing just to type it into my cell phone. You said: "Fill your life and your mind with 'what is'. Too many people mess up 'what is' with what they wish they could have, they don't enjoy the 'what is' half as much." Wow!

I read that over and over and over again. It brings so much comfort. It reminds me that I need to continue to seek out the blessings in my life rather than dwell on the loss and negativity that has also been a part of our life. We have so much to be thankful for. Even though I have loss in my heart, I need to focus on the "what is" rather than "what will never be".

Thank you for that reminder. Happy 2017--may it bring you and your family many blessings.
