Just some thoughts on being thankful

Here is a list of things I am thankful for this year. 


I haven't had alot of happiness in my life. I first had to learn to like
myself once again. For a long time I did not like myself very much 
because the people around me were always making me feel like nothing. I 
know I am something. I can look in the mirror today and like myself 
again. To me that is a success. 


I try to be a good friend. Sometimes people think that I am too caring
or too nice. I like to listen and if someone needs help, I am usually 

My Job 

I like my job. I like writing and I like to talk to people about writing
and books. Some people might think my job is boring but when I see a 
child's face light up from storytime or learning new words. That to me 
is a triumph! 

My puppy 

I think my puppy is adorable. Even when he wakes me up about 8 times a
night! He is just a puppy and I have to be patient. He knows lots of 
tricks like giving a handshake, fetching, high-5, roll over, jump and 
do a flip and he can play dead too. But mostly he comes when I call him 
and he is always happy to see me. 


I don't worship money. I know I need it to pay my bills but other than
that I do not look down on people without it. I think people put too 
much emphasis on status and wealth, that makes the rest of us suffer in 
ways like if your clothes are not designer label sometimes you get put 
down. So what I shop at Walmart and Sear and Marshalls sometimes, I am 
glad I have clothes on my back! Even socks! 

In the grand scheme of things, who the hell cares where I buy my pants! 


I care about people. I see so many people rushing around being rude.
Pushing and shoving to get stuff. That is rude. I don't understand 
rudeness and somehow it is almost a sign of being cool in this society. 
What a world it would be if we all were kind to each other. 

Its not a weakness to be kind. Its a strength. It is easy to be rude.


Love is beautiful and I think falling in love is a precious gift from


Enjoy each day like a gift and treat others as you would want to be

Have a big piece of apple pie with ice cream and to hell with the

It's damn good to eat yummy food.
