Thankful after venting...

ok ok, the venting thread is going very good. Enter drama>>> Waking up this morning, yesterday's events in the back of my mind (griping about work), and ready for a new day (at work).... I think to myself, how thankful I should be to even have a job. A job that allows me to live comfortably, to buy my daughter oooodles of clothes, to pay a telephone bill so I can call family, to be able to freely walk into my hometown grocer, buy anything I want, and also know everyone by name. Life is grand, simply.

What are you thankful for in spite of life's little speedbumps?

Shannon, thanks for starting this thread! We all need to slow down sometimes & remember what we're thankful for. For me, it's having a hubby who's willing to work twice as hard so I can be a stay at home mom, having 2 kids that really brighten my day no matter how bad I think it is, parents I can call on to help me when ever I need it, food on the table every day(even when it turns out to be not so good), being able to come here to share my heartache & triumphs, & last but not least, a life that is full of happy memories!

Oh lovely idea Shannon. I am thankful for so many things, good health, loving family and all the necessities of life. I do tend to get a bit caught up in my grumpiness sometimes, so thanks for reminding me to count my blessings.

I'm thankful for waking up every morning!
I'm thankful knowing that my kids will SOME day, MOVE!
More thankful that my kids are healthy and are alive today!
I'm thankful that after almost 21 years of a hard marraige, we can still laugh with each other.

And last but NOT least, I'm thankful for finding all of you guys on DC!!

Paul. He's made all my dreams come true. I know that sounds silly but
it's really true. Because of him I have the life I'd always wanted. Loving and being loved.. I waited a life time. It was worth the wait.

David. Because even though he tries to act like he doesn't care
when either of us have a bad day we reach out for each other and we're always there.

My friends. The ones I see and talk to every day and all of you
who I "chat" with every day. It's so good to have people you care about.

My family. ( again THANKS to Paul) I have a family now that loves me
and accepts me for who I am. And they let me love them. Wow! What a feeling.

My kitty. If I'm mad at the world... she's always there to cuddle.

Yep! And he is what puts colour into my life. I was pretty glad to see him. He can make everything better with just a hug.

I'm thankful for getting to do something for a living that I'm good at again, without too much drama on the side.
