Personal / Thursday, November 27th, 2003


I’m thankful for my family, the ones who put me on their cell phone plan, the ones who come around and go out to dinner with me, and all the others as well. They have made me who I am, the good, the bad and the ugly. I do enjoy going home for holiday celebrations, I just get sad thinking about how much better it used to be, the nursing home extention makes my heart sick…I hate that place. And I’m overwhelmed with sadness seeing my grandpa there…feelings I must repress or I would never, ever get out of bed in the morning. Some things in life are ugly and unfair. : (

I’m thankful for my friends, who are my family. Where would the good, the bad and the ugly Jen be without her friends. I have been blessed with many multitudes of wonderful friendships…more than one person deserves in a lifetime.

I’m thankful for my cats. Even though SashaKitten somehow managed to dismantle the entire Christmas tree of lights in one sly maneuver. All my lights, all 4 strands, suddenly out. HOW? Dunno. No time to investigate, maybe next week. I would hate to undecorate and re-wrap the lights….that is the man’s job of Christmas decorations, and since I am without one in close proximity. My cats, ahem. They are my babies and every day reminders that someday I need to become more responsible! ; ) Unconditional love…something I desperately craved this past year, moving out into my own apartment, letting go of yuck…my cats keep on purring.

I’m thankful for some innate goodness of heart and soul that I keep rediscovering in myself…someone, somewhere is looking out for me even with all the crap. And boy is there a lot of crap but I still imagine a light at the end of the tunnel. I feel badly for those without this light, without the light? I would never had made it this far. I suppose it is my duty to inspire and serve others to find this light within….a fun task, really. ; ) Just don’t call me on a depressed day. Or a “where is my place in the world” day? Or a “when is it MY turn, selfish day” All other days and times are applicable, see store for details. Offer void without purchase.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
