After my previous post, I realized that I had that rant about gratefulness late in December.
For the record, I take it back.
I was having one heck of a difficult time - my family was.
Imagine being hit by a bus, then managing to try to stand up, only to get hit by another one. Then imagine this happening again. And again.
That's how it was.
I honestly am not back 100% but over the holidays, in spite of not celebrating in the traditional way, I realized that there are things to be thankful for.
There was Christmas Eve lunch with dear old friends to whom I'll forever be grateful.
There was Christmas Eve dinner at home with my dad and family friends.
There was Christmas dinner (and karaoke, would you believe?) with high school friends.
All these simple things made me feel ashamed of my rant. I'm not promising I won't do it again, but for now, I'm thankful.
