Thankful Thursday

After a day like today I decided to write about everything I am thankful for. I spent most of the day on the verge of hormonal tears. When I wasn't holding back the waterworks I was ready to smack someone. Near the end of the day I realized I was being hormonal and irrational and I decided to reflect on what is good in my life and is goes something like this.

I am thankful for my beautiful children and the fact that they are healthy and able to run and play and that I can kiss their little heads at night when they sleep.

I am thankful that I can provide for my children and put a roof over their head, and food in their bellies and enough Wii games for 10 kids.

I am thankful for the people in my life who reinforce the notion that I really am not a fat and ugly cow, even though I spend most of the day feeling like that.

I am thankful that my clothes continue to get looser even though the scale at Weight Watchers said I gained FOUR OUNCES today (another side effect of unfortunate hormonal state)

I am thankful that I get to stare at Robert Pattinson's beautiful face tomorrow night when I go see Water for Elephants.

I am thankful that I have brains, lots of them and that I use them. After listening to some people spew their ignorance and stupidity I am glad I know how to form cognitive thoughts and sentences. I really don't know how some people get through the day without falling in the toilet and drowning.

And lastly I am thankful for my excellent taste in music, without it I would be one of the unfortunate schmucks listening to top 40 Bubble gum, Lady Gag-me music.
