“I’m grateful for…um…for…Wait, I know this…”
I know I’m grateful about something. Not going to lie though. This year has been a rocky one and I’ve not been rolling with or even twerking (yeahh rightt) to the beat as well as I’d like. Despite that, I managed to find 5 things I’m honestly grateful for having. And okay, so they may not be things that would ordinarily be on a traditional It’s Thanksgiving and I’m Grateful List, but this is what I’ve got to work with.
5 Grateful Things…
My Humor. As warped and twisted as it can be, I wouldn’t have made it through some royally nasty, life sucks so bad variety of snafus. And I came through grinning, maybe while tears rolled but I was still grinning. That counts.
My Stubbornness. I refuse to quit. Anything. I haven’t quit trying (insert any category here) even when others would have. I persist and I’m (usually)glad I did.
My Insatiable curiosity. If I weren’t always questioning the why of it all, then I’d not have been able to locate some of my better talents, pounce and sit on them so they didn’t run away.
Duck. (my son) He’s the one that talks (cons) me into believing that I can do it. Even if the it is my having to pay up on my bet with a Duck or scary or cold, or all of that and embarrassing. And because when he looks at me and smiles his gorgeous gap toothed smile, he makes me feel like the not so fun parts of life aren’t all that bad after all. He tells me I’m the best Mom in the world (even if I’m not) though usually when he wants me to do something that’s cold, scary-you get the idea.
The Redneck. (my guy) He shows me by doing and not just saying, what the real meaning of love is and he does it yelling his favorite word. Okay so that’s the clean one. The others cannot be typed here, for fear of the laptop bursting into flame.
