Today is not a good day for me. Let me say first, that I thank God on a daily basis for Mo. She came along at a time in my life where I was praying for change and helped me up out of the pit I was stuck in. Since today is a bad day, I have decided to do something about it and not remain in the muck and mire. To that end...
I am feeling blue, frustrated, overwhelmed, and even some self-pity. To that end, I am grateful for a mind that functions, friends who(like Mo) remind me that I have choices, too much to do cause that means I have a life, and the realization that status-quo is not enough.
I am aching because one of my prescriptions ran out and the doctor office is dragging their feet to get the refill. To that end, I am grateful that I can get my most important medications free of charge and all but two of them for $4.00 at Wal-Mart.
I do not have a car and this makes taking care of my business twice as hard. To that end, I am grateful for the few wonderful people who go out of their way to help me when they can.
I am missing my son aka Navy Man very much. To that end, I am grateful that my son grabbed his life by the horns and is riding it for all that it is worth.
My youngest son is suspended from school for 10 days and is up for expulsion. He is a great kid, wonderful person, and an instinctive protector. There was a situation at school in which he made the wrong choice(albeit correctly principled) and is now facing sincere consequences. To that end, I am grateful that I have a son who is willing to stand up for what he believes in.
I am missing my sweetheart terribly. To that end, I am grateful that we are able after 25 years to still talk, giggle, and spend time via telephone.
Today I am grateful for gratitude!
