And it isn't a whole lot, either. But, you know, I think it's a lot more than many people do have, so I'm looking at the glass as being half-full. Bashing myself for what isn't right or what's missing never helped me in the past. Rarely has being hard on myself...
I got this on a birthday a long time ago in my 20s and wanted to keep it for its beauty in the message. :)

quantity for the holidays. We have plenty of food, it's the people. It just doesn't feel like thanksgiving with so few. I think it's because growing up every year at my grandmother's there was my dad, brother and myself, then my uncles side, which was him, my aunt, my 4 cousins...
I say thanks for what I have. To many - I have a GREAT life!! Sometimes, I think a few things here and there could be tweaked (to be better) but I am very lucky. I have my famly. friends, health, home, and want for nothing really.
But at the same time, I need a little more than what I have. I need more than what I'm getting out of life. While I do appreciate and love the gadgets I have and all of that, there's more to life than just materials, you know? I'm thankful for them, but I need more than just...
I got this card from my stepdad's mom a long time ago in my 20s and kept it because of its beauty in the message. :)
It's your birthday -
time again for you
to make a few wishes
and blow out your candles.
And it's time for me to tell you
about a few wishes of my own
that I have...
I am going through a divorce, and painful as it is, I still manage to wake up everyday feeling grateful. I think this experience has taught me to be more aware of all the good things that are still in my life. Divorce doesn't take away everything from you. It only takes away...
I got this in a birthday card from my 20s that I saved for the beauty of its message and I just wanted to share it here. :)
For a wonderful daughter
You mean so much to me
If I could gather up
all the smiles, laughs
memories and pride
that you've brought me
through the years...
for the holy spirit with me and Jesus' love that he gave everything for us.
It really takes some thinking to fully understand, but it has a beautiful irony of simplicity at the same time. It's more or less this, I sinned yesterday but I'm not guilty today, I'm not just...
I am thankful for my case worker who is helping me through doctor visits and in finding how to get better. I am thankful for my husband for be there for me no matter what. I am thankful for my beautiful son who has brought so much joy to my life. I am thankful for my Dad and Step...
No matter how I feel on any given day or time, I am VERY VERY THANKFUL for what I do have!!
Everyday on my way home from work, I see people that make me think, I am thankful that I do have a car to drive. I have a car to drive to work and for that I am thankful that I have...
I am thankful for a lot.
I'm a survivor.
I can breathe.
I can move.
I can talk.
I can see.
I can look around.
I can smell.
I can taste.
I can chew my food.
I can swallow.
I can smile.
I can cry.
I can laugh.
I can touch.
I can feel.
I can go to the bathroom.
Each day, I am thankful for
nights that turn into mornings,
friends that turn into family,
dreams that turn into reality,
and likes that turn into love.
