Giving Thanks

Everyone has alot to give thanks for.
Even if we don't know what we have.
I personally believe I have more than most.
This time of year makes me think of what I have and what is important to me.

A great woman that has been my lover and best friend for 40+ years.If she was not with me I do not know what I would do.
As you all know I have great kids and more grandkids than most.
I am blessed that they only live about 15 min.for us.
They still come around often ( and we love it).
I do a job that I am very good at and still enjoy doing it.
I have friends that are still around after more years than most.
I have good people to work with and that I get along with. We try to have fun while we work.
I have met new friends through blogs.
A few things people do not think of---
A good chair to rest, sleep, and fart in.
A good car to rest ,sleep, and fart in.( this when I am on the outs with my woman)
I am blessed to work in a job where I keep our freezer full of meat.( this my be the reason I have such a stealthy figure).
We both are reasonably healthy even though I have the deadly trio ( gray hair-bad knees and a big ass)
We own our house free and clear.
I sometimes have a warped way of looking at life.
This is a time in my life that I look at things in a different way.Like maybe a good crap is better than a new pair of pants.
A great TV to watch while I sleep,rest, and fart in my chair.

    I agree with you whole-heartedly: We have many blessings known to us, and blessings not yet revealed to us. I do like a good surprise, don't you? Thank God for family and friends: where would we be without them? Have a wonderful holiday season, my friend. Same for your whole family. May God continue to shower you with blessings. He's done a spectacular job so far!

  2. You certainly do have a lot to be thankful for Tee...and it all starts with Sondi and your wonderful family. Not everyone is so blessed. Besides your friends and family, there seems to be a theme in your list of 'things to be thankful for.' And as we all get older, I think there may be a consensus among us that 'a good crap is better than a new pair of pants'...unless of course you need a new pair of pants because you crapped in your old ones. So remember....'Fiber is our friend.' Happy Holidays Tee... ~Joy
