Counting blessings

I was feeling a bit down this morning, so I figured it was time to count my blessings (any and all cynicism comes with a written disclaimer), and take an alternative perspective on some of the blessings in my life:

A Mount Everest of debt An opportunity for developing long-term stress management skills.

Two crazy cute kitties.

Four cranky four-legged friends.

Two rotten healthy children.

A marriage to a big meanie? man who knows exactly how to treat me.

One batty, needy mother who loves me.

A bedroom that may never be finished home that is really ours.

Four vehicles, none of which is completely reliable with potential to be quite reliable.

A tendency towards to much sarcasm good sense of humor.

A body that feels like it may be falling apart in pretty good condition for having two kids.

A household of four currently lacking income that gets to spend a lot of time together.

A large following of debt collectors fan club!

A multitude of issues surrounding sex and personal acceptance relationship and sex life that gets better with each passing year.

And did I mention my skill at using humor to avoid addressing my real issues great sense of humor?

  10. Naida, well I'm happy to loan my humour out. Though the people you live with may not enjoy it quite as much lol.

    Dee, I so rarely hear that! lol.

    Jz, yes it is. That's why I normally take the doomsday approach--to avoid disapointment. Thought I would try something new this time lol.

    Serenity, well some days it seems like a toss up between humorous approach and ax murderer on the loose. I'm aiming for the safe approach! And thanks for the thoughts.

    kelly, thank you. And yea, my niece has had a multitude of health problems from birth so I have learned to appreciate healthy kids in a whole new way.

    kaya, *hangs kaya's comment on the wall for my doubtful family as proof that I DO have a funny sense of humour (they don't always appreciate it like I think they should lol).
