I hate him.
it's worse than usual...man I love aleve.
I barely crawled through my walk.
I ate a zinger and now I am going to sleep.
Today will be a non starter in my book of life.
Tomorrow shall be a new day.
A better day.
And someone said in the last set of comments...99 to go I think,
that to have no jealousy you must be grateful..
And you know.
I think she's right.
I AM GRATEFUL
I always have been.
I think church instilled it in me or something.
I loved sitting in ''my tree'' growing up, it was an oak tree out back.
I loved my books.
I loved drawing.
money doesn't hold much allure because I love having my family together.
I love and am grateful for having those moments where we just have family conversations or arguments about politics or geography or hunting vs. ecology.
I love that we have our own home...I don't care how big it is...
I love the dings and cracks in it.
We have memories here and someday when my kids say to their husbands or their children or friends
"When I was growing up back HOME."
they will be able to remember this house and have all the memories associated with it, they will be able to hone in on a ''home.''
I am grateful we were able to provide that.
A safe, warm home where they had a mom and a dad who cared about and loved them.
Who provided stability.
Who told them they could do things.
I am so grateful I can give that to them. I am grateful that I have more than two pairs of pants..
when I was a kid I was grateful for two pairs of pants. lol.
I guess when you whittle it down..
I don't feel like life owes me anything.
The worst phrase you can utter in this house is "It's not fair."
they can chant back with me "life's not fair.'
I don't feel like anyone owes me.
I feel like I owe God.
For being a father to the fatherless (me), for giving me eyes to see, ears to hear, a mind to think and hands and feet that work.
I have no impediments.
I have no complaints.
I came in this world with nothing and if I go out with nothing then I am no better or worse off than I started.
Have a good night guys,
Tomorrow is a new day.
