Laugh Another Day

As 2007 draws to a close I’m finding myself thinking over all of what I’m grateful for.

First, I’m grateful for my good health. I’m grateful that I didn’t break this arm when I fell. I’m grateful that my endometriosis doesn’t hurt everyday any more. I’m grateful that I rarely get sick or have days when I feel anything worse than tired.

I’m grateful to my husband for being there, and for making sure that I feel loved everyday. And for always putting up with me, even when I’m being an uptight neurotic bitch.

And I’m grateful that my daughter is happy and healthy, and that her dad is taking good care of her.

I’m grateful to all my friends for their loyalty and concern. It means so much to have so many friends who really care and really empathize.

I’m grateful to my mom for everything.

I’m grateful that I live in a place with clean air.

I’m grateful to my cats for teaching me that love is all about having your ears scritched in just the perfect way.

And I’m grateful to my dog for his undying love and for how patient he is with us.

I’m grateful that I finally learned to touch type, it makes it faster to blather on about nothing important in my blog.

I’m grateful that Joyce got kitties because kitties are good for the soul.

I’m grateful that my sister finally has time to knit and make art, even though she’s sick. And I’m grateful that she’s getting better now.

I’m grateful that I don’t have to work for someone else and that I don’t have a mortgage or any debt.

And most of all, I’m grateful to be here, grateful to be able to laugh another day.

    Yay, glad to hear you reflecting on the positivity baby. Ain’t easy sometimes, but it’s good to do it. You gots to giggle, even when life is shit, you just got to laugh. I’ll loan you Max sometime if you find yourself lacking in laughs, he’ll crack you up (before he gets to the point where you want to kill him he’s pretty funny).

    Thanks Canuck! I started that entry wanting to bitch about all the crap that happened this year. Then I decided that I could always bitch another day!

    Lots and lots of things for which to be grateful! This is a really good time of year for that kind of reflection. The bad stuff that happens, well I guess it’s bound to happen. The good stuff is the stuff to hang on to.

    Merry Holidays!
