Things I am Grateful on this Christmas Day


So many things...

I am thankful for my sanity after a shaky early life filled with, shall we say exploration and uncertainty.

I am very thankful for Beloved who has put up with me as I have put up with her for almost 19 years, through thick and thin, sickness and health, better and worse and all the rest but one...

I am so glad to get to know my the Godchild who grew up away from me, states away, but we have gotten to know each other a adults, both of us-as least she's an adult.

I am grateful for the cousins. When some of us are only children and some of are only by death or distance, I rely on them, also through the thick and thin, and when we get together we ague like the sisters most of us never had and Janet teaches how! And Michele, who I never, even knew as a child has become a great friend and who is full of surprises.

I am so grateful for the Brother-in Law, the best one a girl could ever want! Who knew I would ever have one! I hope he has a wonderful New Year...

I am grateful for my friends, who like the souvenir ruler that I got when I was on a trip as a child said should be "like books, few and well chosen." Well I get the second part, but not the first. Books, still over run me, thank God. Laurie, Maureen and Randi, Steve and Paul, Joni-who baked me Christmas cookies-Jim,Amy, Paula, Carmel, Carol Sally, John, Roe, Joe, Steve Paula, and the rest of you all know who you are...

I'm very grateful for the Revgals for giving me guidance, for being there when I was ill, for answering questions, for having fun.

I'm grateful to the NY State Education Department, Vocational Services for Individuals for Individuals with Disabilities for letting me keep my job in these hard times and letting be practice my skill and learn to be a better counselor every day, even the days that leave me tired and frustrated. More days leave me proud of what I do and that's good.

I'm so Grateful that my Aunt Julie, at 91 is still with us in mind and body and able to have fun with us.

I'm very grateful to Mary to help me to get here.

Thank you all and Merry Christmas.
