I need some sleep

Tonight is going to be short and sweet. I am grateful that I did not have to drive all of the way home from Sacramento. I am grateful that my sister and my brother in-law are able to tolerate me enough to allow me to sleep at their house. I am tired and ready to…

can’t you hear me knockin’

It’s July 1978. I must have had a job at the time because when I got home, my mom lectured me about the fact that i had lied to her, and now she couldn’t celebrate the day with me… a lesson i am still slowly learning the importance of. i think eddie money opened; followed…

There is too much….

Today I really cannot pinpoint one thing that I am overly grateful for. I am grateful for everything that is going on in my life. Even if it isn’t something that I enjoy, I am at least learning something about it. So I am protesting that I am grateful for my life. I really am…

yet Another grateful day?

Hmmmmm……. I am grateful for the day that was: today. I’m grateful for the two moms and three spotted fawns that calmly grazed outside the kitchen window… I’m grateful for another evening checking in with my brother. I’m grateful for my daughter asking my for a favor; ’cause that’s what fathers are for. I’m grateful…

She’s a Beauty

Today I am absolutely, without a doubt, very grateful that Fifty-three years ago a wonderful girl was born! She is one of the best things that could happen to a person and I am grateful that she is sharing her life with me! There are many reason that I am so happy to have her…

Professional

Today I am grateful for the people who are around me that chose to go to a college or university, who chose a higher education, so that they may collect money from me and counsel me on my health, businesses and life. You may think that I am being sarcastic, but I really am grateful…

Evolution

I am grateful for evolution; the natural process of nature continually moving toward perfection. I have faith the process is completed, in the place beyond time and space… It seems a difficult journey. Yet its natural process, because it is natural, can only arrive at a single destination: eternity. It is our lack of knowing…

Rely on Resilience

Today I am grateful for my hunger for education. I never want to quit learning. There is always something new for me to know. I know that I am resilient and that if everything was taken away from me, I have the ability to work hard and bring myself back to living a healthy, happy…

I gave it my all…

Even when I was at my lowestWith nothing left to giveI gave to you my allSo that you may, still live And even when you plunderedI would feel the rainAnd underneath your dying breathI breathed in your pain You squander looks and attitudeA quibble on the floorRolling blankly ‘cross the kitchenBlithely out the door Even…
