hey there-workingonit has suggested a few times the idea of saying 5 things you appreciate or are grateful for every day, so i thought it'd be fun to post 'em and read each others.
here's mine for right this second:
i'm grateful to finally have a nice warm bed with soft cozy blankets to sleep in
i'm glad to live a block and a half from the ocean
i really appreciate all the help and support i've gotten from this board
i'm glad my worker's compensation nightmare is finally over!!!!!:)
i'm glad that i can finally afford college.

Those are good ones orangeboy. =)

Hmmm. Now for me?

1. I am grateful for Carnation Instant Breakfast (the milk chocolate flavor)

2. I am thankful for Gully Foyle!

3. I loooooooove my bed... (I just got new pillows!)

4. I am the most emotionally stable person I know. HaHa! Okay, How about: I am the most emotionally stable person awake on this floor of my home right now at 7:54 am Eastern time. There... That's more like it. =)

5. I get to come home after I take my bro to school, and sleep all day if I want. How cool is that? I am soooo turning off the phones.

Five things?!

Five!!!??!??

damn curser is just blinking at me...blink...blink...blink...and I don't have it that bad. I really don't.

Okay.

1. A friend who came by to visit me today and ended up taking me out to lunch.

2. A friend who came by today, actually to visit someone else in another office but I heard her name, opened the door to my office and she came in to bullshit with me for a bit. We used to fool around a couple of years ago. She is one of the best friends I'll probably ever have!

3. Puppies!!! They are just so cute, even when they turn into dogs!

4. After fighting all weekend, my daughter came and got in bed with me this morning before I got up so we could cuddle and talk.

5. I survived another suicidal episode. I rock!!!

Love to all,

Ren'ai

It's after 10 in the morning, and I was just about to make my mental list of why I was such a bad person. I'll do this instead.

1. My son - he is a sweetie, and a really good boy, except when he is naughty.

2. My husband. He really does love me, and I am not easy to love.

3. The lady who cleans my house on Fridays. God Bless her and all her kin.

4. Stargate Atlantis. New episode this evening, yippee!

5. My own office, with a door and no glass. Sometimes, because I'm not being watched, I do waste time, but when I am working, the privacy is a blessing.

I feel better. Good thread.

1. water

2. my best friend

3. my "mommy" who is trying so hard not to pry, but has her own gentle way of letting me know she can tell I'm not okay and she is worried about me. My parents usually just try to act like nothing is ever wrong...

4. no contact with ex, even though it's hard

5. my ex's mom, who I won't be having contact with for a while, either. But she loves me so much she refers to me as her daughter.

Man, this is a tough question....

Ok, here goes

1) my kiddos, they drive me nuts, but God I do love them!

2) laughter, it is the best medicine, even when it hurts

3) my chosen career path, it helps to know that I can make a difference in the life of a special needs child

4) believe it or not, I'm grateful for the mistakes I have made, for I am learning new lessons and getting stronger every day

5) coffee with flavored creamer (hazelnut) -it's a necessity in the mornings, especially getting my 3 "little darlins" up and at em in the morning! (they're 10(almost), 8, and 18 months)

Thanks for this thread!!!!!!! 🙂

1) You lot and this site.

2) My vivid imagination ... it soothes inevitable loneliness and feeds creativity & appreciation.

3) MUSIC: My new "KEANE" CD.
Radiohead and Coldplay.
(I thought emoting, admitting faults etc were mainly middle-aged women's traits ... so I'm delighted to discover that several new young men's bands are expressing & tackling real feelings with honesty, poignancy, wit and soaring beauty! And stunningly pure, virtuoso voices & musicianship.
Content & meaning are becoming as important as style - AT LAST! There's hope for our cultural future after all!)

4) My teenage daughter actually refrained from yelling & swearing at me this morning too (thanks for reminding me, Ren'ai.)

5) Sunshine finally breaking through the snow-clouds and slushy misery. Hoorah!
