My “pot of gold?” are my 2 kiddos, hubby and most importantly, My Savior Jesus Christ! This past year has been a trying year but with them, “all things are possible!” and now, our future looks bright!

 

Here are some of the other comments, hope they lift your spirits….

Sandy weinstein ~ my pot of gold are my 3 4-legged girls, evie, tressa and harley.

Gretchen H ~ today’s pot of gold: the internet

Angela Troxell  ~My pot of gold is my 10 year old son. He was diagnosed with PPD-NOS when he was 7 years old. it has been an amazing journey to watch my little guy grow up and to continue to overcome all his struggles. He has recently “graduated” from needing a theraputic support staff and has joined tae kwon do and has made many friends. Whenever I feel like life is getting to be too much, I just think about all the things my son has acheived and how he has fought everyday with a smile on his face, and I realize it’s really not that bad.

Gretchen H March ~Today’s pot of gold? My husband helped me clean the top of our 9 foot high bookcase so I didn’t have to climb the ladder. I hate ladders!

Gretchen H March  ~Today’s pot of gold. I received an email that I had won $100. Doesn’t put a dent in the cost of 5 windows that the neighborhood kids shot out (other than them we live in a nice neighborhood) or the hot water heater that started leaking two days ago or the mechanical issues w/ the garage door that started yesterday but it’s nice!

Lachelle ~ My pot of gold today is knowing that even though my grandma passed away I know she is in a better is place, free from the mortal limitations placed upon her in her mortal body. I know I will see her again. The peace I feel is another pot of gold. I know it is angels around us uplifting us up. I know it is the prayers of others, as well, asking that we feel peace and the love of our Heavenly Father. The Plan of Salvation is great knowledge to have, one of my many pots of gold.

Mara F. ~ My pot of gold is my husband of 32 yrs! He is AMAZING in every way!

Brooke ~My pot of gold is my 3 kids! They make me happier than all the gold in the world!

Amanda ~ Aside from the obvious answers, my pot of gold right now is the early spring, with the crocuses all blooming and many of the other bulbs and perennials poking through the earth. Spring is always a time of joy for me, a reminder that all will be made new one day.

Sandy w~ my pot of gold would be to have my mother’s trust completed, which i dont think i will ever have w/ all of the problems with the attys, co-trustee-who just quit, my siblings suing me (they sued my mother abt 5/6 times in the last 10 yrs of her life), sell or get rid of a storage room of clothes, furniture, etc. from my mother, and sell my house and move to a different state to get away from my siblings. however, i am grateful everyday for my 3 4 legged girls.

Tamma ~ My pot of gold comes in the form of a neuro stimulator. My husband has had 3 back surgeries and tremendous back pain. I learned of Pain Management, talked to them and ask if Ray would be a good candidate for the stimulator. Last week, they put on a trial for 3 days. It allowed him to get out of bed and have dinner with me. He is approved for the permanent one to be implanted next week!!!

Keri ~My pot of Gold in for sure my family Every single one of them!

Marley ~today, my pot of gold is my healthy family and healthy pets….so grateful for this blessing!

Robin ~ well my pot of gold is that im still here. in 2005 i was diagnosed with emphesema gold stage 4 and was told life expectancy is 4 yrs, its 2012 im still here,god has blessed me with strenghth to be here and with my family great drs and meds so im blessed everyday i wake up!

Melissa ~ So many pots of gold. I have much to be thankful for! One thing that stands out is that I have been able to stay home with kids or just work part time for 12 years. I’ve carefully budgeted money, and I’m thankful to have spent lots of time with my family when others have had to work.

Elizabeth ~ I am so thankfull for my men! I have 3 boys (well 4 with my husbad) I work full time and am away from home all day! but when I finally get home and hear the sweet sound of “MOMS HOME” and get greeted at the door with hugs and kisses, well,,,, life is good.

Debbie ~My Pot of Gold is my husband , who keeps me sane!

Crystal ~ My “Pot of Gold” is being comfortable with who I am, where I am in life and the direction that I am heading.

***************

Kim M ~ When many things go wrong in my life I have a phrase I say, “when it rains it pours.” The other day I was thinking of all the blessings that we have as a family and thought, “when it rains it pours.” My Pot of Gold is my husband of 31 years, 5 children and their spouses and 11 fun grandchildren. There are many special moments each day in our family.

Emily ~ My “pot of gold” hit me smack in the face the other evening as I was giving my 2 year old daughter a bath. I looked at her big eyes as she splashed and smooshed bubbles between her fingers and my eyes welled up with tears as I thought about all the physical nightmares I had been through since her birth. Preclampsia during pregnancy and blood pressure issues after, not being able to breast feed her, due to my milk drying up, 5 months later needing a full hysterectomy at 39 and now trying to find the right hormones so I can feel “normal” again. As the tears ran down my face and my sweet little one asked, “you ok mama?” I said to her, “yes, I’m ok”, and I realized that all of it was worth it. All of these not so fun things my body has gone through was so worth this beautiful, sweet girl sitting in front of me. It has changed my attitude from “woe as me” to “lucky me”!!

Margaret P. ~ My pot of gold is watching my 13 month old son dance…tonight it was to LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem! Pure joy (and pretty hilarious)!!

Adrianne ~ My pot of Gold is… My Family. With out my husband and my children I would not have any thing.

Lachelle ~ My pot of gold–to know my husband has a good job for our family and we can pay for our bills, even the expensive medical bills.

Lydia B ~ My pot of gold is my oldest daughter. She struggles daily with schizophrnia at the age of 10. Yet every day there is that moment when she leans into me, smiles and says how she loves me more than…insert random thing like Oreos or freckles. Those brief moments make up for all the ups and downs and scary things in between because I know that through it all I must be doing something right to be better than Oreos!

Liz ~ my herbs & veggie garden are my pot of gold

Spring Ross ~ I am blessed to have a little one growing inside of me, and looking forward to meeting this new little one. This month.

Robin k ~ My Pot of Gold is My Faith,Family, and a small group of Women I meet with every Monday Night. We range in age from 29-65.We come from different walks of life,socio economic status,and professions. On this one day a week for two hours we talk, laugh,cry,and support each other. It is an area where honesty and being open are the key to our friendships. Together we have had Children and Grandchildren being born, Spouses pass away, marraiges end,struggle,and thrive, Jobs found and lost, and above everything we have unbreakable friendships. I cannot ask for a more blessed life or Pot of Gold than the one I have!

Spring R ~My due date was yesterday, and I blessed with feeling a happy, healthy baby in my stomach still. Also looking forward to meeting this little one.
