Feeling better. Voice still mostly horrifying, however. But it doesn't matter because this month is AWESOME.
"Remember, remember the Fifth of November! Happy Guy Fawkes Day!!
I think Guy would be in full support of the Occupy movement. Remember to question authority, stand up for the little person (sometimes that is you and sometimes it is not), and do your damnedest to right injustices! ♥" was my homage to Guy on my tired but busy and fun Saturday.
I am thankful to have a voice (okay, maybe the timing is a little off here LOL). I can write, scream, whisper my opinions to the world if I like, and so can you. And even when we don't agree I'm glad when you get to say something that makes me twitch or yell or disagree, because as much as we all talk, I don't think we exercise our right to freedom of speech enough.
I am incredibly thankful for the many amazing people in my life to whom I can confide, laugh at myself and the state of things, pour out all of my inane ramblings (for years and years), or just be. I think I take advantage of you all much more than I should without acknowledging just what a great difference it makes to me.
I am sometimes left breathless to think of all the people I can (and have and do) turn to in a fluster, or tears, or silly news and been received with open arms. I hope you rely on me in the same way. I hope you will and do and know that you can.
I am grateful to be in a position that may not put me in the 1% of wealthy americans but I'm sure it puts me into a high percentage of health and wealth in the world.
We do not go hungry; I can provide a comfortable place for me and my daughter to live and play; I have a car and money to pay to drive it to visit family and friends; I have money enough in the bank to treat friends to dinner or surprise treats; I can buy unnecessary bits to create things that bring me and others happiness.
I am Sooo not busy struggling to support my family or feed my daughter that I can instead focus on our hearts and happiness. I live an AMAZING LIFE!
