I received some nice comments on yesterday's thoughts. It's always nice when I strike a cord that is meaningful to people. It's further proof that we are all not so different. The people who receive these thoughts are very diverse but we are all just people. We are many places and we do many different things but at the end of the day we are just happy to return safely to our homes. When I get home at nights, it's the simple things for which I am grateful. First of all, I am grateful that I survived the day and I am still alive. I am grateful for a good meal. I am grateful for the hot bath I take before changing into more comfortable clothes. I am grateful for letters or messages from friends. I am grateful for music and a soft chair while I read the daily news. I am grateful for my couch where I sometimes take wonderful naps. I am grateful for my granddaughter, Chloe, who sometimes surprises me with a visit. I am grateful for my cat in spite of litter boxes and hairballs. I am grateful to be part of a family even though we all drive one another crazy sometimes. I am grateful that I feel safe and secure in my home. I am grateful that I don't think life sucks even when it does. O well, I could go on and on. You get the point.
