I knew in my heart that the quiet and relative peace wouldn't last. It blew up last night with yet another WTG freak out. I decided not to dwell upon that though. Whats the point? I would rather take the advice that Tara found about putting a positive spin on things and living a life of gratitude.
I am thankful for:
-My kids and grandkids, above anything and everything. To be able to share my life with these seven cool, interesting people is such a gift.
-The rest of my family and my friends. Even though I sometimes feel alone in the world, I am not. There are people who care for me and look to me for care as well.
-My job. So many people just tolerate or even hate their jobs. For the most part I love mine. How lucky am I?
-My good health. This one always makes me feel superstitious for some reason...but I can't ignore it. Again, I have been fortunate.
-My life is good enough that I can see what a beautiful world that we live in. If enough terrible things happen to someone, I know the ability to see that would be lost...or the concept would become irrelevant. But me? I live in a beautiful world.
