default What are you grateful for today?

Post by Rivershine on Sun Aug 10, 2008 8:00 pm

Today I'm grateful for actually having a decent conversation with my ex and talking to my kids on the phone. I'm also grateful for the good soaking rain we're getting, my mom and I getting closer, and an almost never ending supply of books to read. Very Happy And movies. And music. Laughing

Today I am grateful for the mild weather (74). I am grateful for the fact that I got a whole day to play with my best friend, just shooting pictures and doing stupid stuff.

I'm grateful for...

My consciousness
My health
My boyfriend
My critters (6 cats, a dog, and soon to be 3 or 4 chickens Smile)
Excellent public radio in the middle of nowhere
Art in all its forms
Connections

That made me feel better - thanks!

I'm grateful for my daughter, who is 21 today. She is a wonderful person and a great daughter. She is also a great friend. I love you boo-bah.

heeesssss baaaaahhhhhcccccckkkkk!

i'm grateful for my friends...my God, i'm grateful for my true friends. they make life worth living. their hearts are huge, their will is strong, their souls are beautiful....

i'm grateful for my enemies. without them, where could i pour out my wrath? they, and their principles i disagree with, define me. those who wish to know me have only to look at who my enemies are to know who i am. i am proud to have strong, wrathful, powerful enemies....they tell me 'who am i?'.

and my eyes opened this morning to another beautiful day of this wonderful, puzzling world....

thank you all.

Even though I still think you're an impossible curmudgeon, I'm glad you're back Reb. Smile

I'm also so glad to see old familiar faces on the board. This has made my year!

Yes, we can never have too many of those. I feel the same way Nan and Justin.

Oh, yeah, another thing I'm grateful for is that turns out yesterday (Thursday) was my last day of work at the temp job for the virtual university. They are putting in cubicles today and it was chaos. I retrieved my timecard, said good bye to people, and came home. Ah, a 3 day weekend, another thing to be grateful for. And then I start my new job on Monday. Oh, yeah, I'm grateful for that, too. I guess I'm just brimming over with gratefullness today.

INFP,

you said ' I still think you're an impossible curmudgeon; you can change that to 'i know', as i'll freely admit it. in fact, an ex-girlfriend (the doctor) gave me this wonderful book called 'the portable curmudgeon' or some such...and danged if it dint disappear. it had h.l. mencken quotes, and others so saucy, i was in awe! some of the comebacks were so elegant, so sly, so inspiring....one dint realize one had been cut until the blood splatted on the floor...i can only hope that one day i reach such a level of expertise... Smile

hooray, Nan! life is good!

what a great day this is turning out to be....but they're all great if i open my eyes lol!

I found a branch library within walking distance of where I live!! I'm grateful because now I can walk to the library (get exercise) and get books to read. And, my daughter called me today, which is always wonderful in and of itself.

I'm grateful that yesterday, a dreaded algebra quiz turned out to be take-home. I'm grateful I'll soon be getting a faster computer. Oh, and the whole not-being-dead thing.

Today I'm grateful that I made an appointment to see the dentist for tomorrow so that I can finally take care of this evil inflamed, angry, hot, gnawing tooth pain.

Also, It looks like a beautiful day outside. It seems that Fall is coming early around here.

And, I was depressed yesterday, but I talked with a wonderful person on the phone last night, and it made me feel a whole lot better.
music Cuz you got to have frieeeeeends music

chuckle

And, I had decided that I wanted to start reading again, and this morning I read a book in it's entirety! dancing

So grateful that the hurricane named Ike is gone! For us, the worst was power outage, phone outage and water outage. Our mobile phone was our lifeline, except where it would not go. So many users, so little airspace, I suppose. Everything is 'on' now, though we can't drink or cook with the water, yet.
Actually, the worst part was being out of touch with loved ones for six days.

I am grateful.

I am grateful that with all these violent storms this year, no one has been hurt, nor their families, nor suffered serious property damage.
