Robin Roberts, co-anchor of Good Morning America, has a lot to be grateful for. Not only is she disease-free after battling breast cancer; she recently signed a contract with GMA that will have her bringing in a reported $20 million for the next five years. 

In a post on her Facebook page reflecting on this past year, she gives thanks for all her blessings, including her partner of 10 years, Amber Laign:

Flashback 12/29/12 . . . Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today . . . when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant . . . and KJ was finally allowed to come back home.

Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude. I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together. I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.

On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too.

Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.

Peace, love, and blessings to all . . . XO
