Ok, this may be lame

Today I am thankful for my body. Sure, most of the time it drives me crazy--I don't weigh what I want to and I wish I could rework some parts (make some smaller and others a little larger). And I am starting to feel my age. Oh, who am I kidding? I've been feeling my age and then some for a good while now!

But you know what? I am thankful that I can hear, see fairly well, walk if not run, move, get out of bed, and do a lot of other things that I take for granted every day. Once, when one of my daughters complained about their brother, I reminded them of a classmate they had. I then told her to think about having that classmate for a brother. Put things in a whole new light for her! Same thing applies to my body. Whenever I get to feeling sorry for myself because I don't look like the models in the magazines, I can remember the man I saw today at Walmart who had no legs or my neighbors who are deaf and can't hear the laughter of their children. I can think about the dear friend from high school who died in a car wreck at age 16.

In the grand scheme of things, I really have nothing to complain about. And at least I'm on the right side of the grass!!

Not lame at all. I agree whole-heartedly (and maybe a little too much about that part about rearranging some parts)!

I love you, bev(erly). You just crack me up. I've been outta the blogging world for a week, and man...it's taken me 4ever to catch up! It's been fun, though. I have to say the Craigslist post is a hoot! Those crazy TN folks...where'd they go to school at anyway...over "yonder"? lol

I'm grateful, too, for the internet. I have friends here in MO now, but it doesn't match up to being able to keep in touch w/ friends & family...blogs are so much fun, and one way of spending 30 minutes every so often to update people about me, and be able to keep in touch w/ others. I'm so glad for all the good that the internet does!
