I've been a bit hostile, of late. I feel justified, but that is probably about the time to stop, and offer up some gratitude:
I am grateful for my family and my friends, who care about me deeply, who I do not get to see often enough.
I am grateful for my health, which is exceptionally good, which I was reminded about recently, and was glad to see my body healed itself without drugs of any kind, despite my whining.
I am grateful for my house and my garden, for the curious fact that I still inhabit this place, as if somehow it has not given up on me, though the direct thanks goes to my father.
I am grateful for my awareness, such as it is, which is at least wide eyed and amazed at pretty much every thing about this world.
I am grateful for my job, because it is paying the bills, because every weekday I get to see the sunrise above the Minnesota river valley, because I am drinking considerably less - and to give credit where credit is due, though I have been critical and somewhat mocking of big bank, today when our primary software was down, they kept us on 7.5 hrs, which they didn't have to, which is something...
And I am thankful for my readers. :)
