Before I whine about my life that really isn't bad enough to whine about, I will begin by giving you an opportunity to do something nice for some kids for the holidays:
Rylander Elementary School
24831 Westheimer Parkway
Katy, TX 77494
Maybe I won't whine today. Maybe I'll try to be more concious of what I have that is good in life. I want to try to make Thanksgiving about more than the big meal, ya know? Sadie asked me what Thanksgiving was the other day, and my first answer was "we eat a lot". Well hell, we eat a lot most days, don't we? So here are a few things I am greatful for today:
my basic needs are met - a roof over my head that does not leak, a job to help pay the bills, food so that I don't go hungry, and a man to keep my bed warm at night.
My children. I could write a book about that, but in short I am grateful that I was ABLE to have children and that they are beautiful and intelligent.
The caring that I feel from my friends and family, which must be close to unconditional, since I'm an ass most of the time. My mother takes care of us like it's her job. I sure as hell wouldn't do that for my kids!
And to round off today's love fest I am also glad to have Hot Tamales in my life. Those little cinnamon candies that make me sick after I eat 50 of them in a sitting. I am truly blessed.
