I’ll be honest. I’m having a really tough time today, coming up with things I am thankful for. I know from reading hundreds of posts from mummy bloggers, that my plight in life is not tough. We struggle to pay bills, who doesn’t? We are beat down by the chore of going to work every day, who isn’t? I’m angry my dad isn’t here anymore and that my son was robbed of having any kind of grandfather figure in his life, what mourner isn’t? We get frustrated quickly because our son is cranky and wants everything his own way, what 3 year old doesn’t? We get stuck in our daily rut of a routine, eat, work, eat, sleep, rinse and repeat x 11000 days. The only light at the end of a tunnel seems to be a train.
We have jobs, we have bills, we have a 3 year old son, my dad at least got some joy from him in his last couple of years, we have a daily routine that doesn’t include doctors/hospitals/specialists/dole lines/wondering where the roof over our head and food on our plate will come from tonight.
Sometimes, even when we may feel at our lowest, it’s still easy to be thankful for the small things that we otherwise take for granted on a daily basis.
On a purely superficial tech/geek/addict side, I’m thankful for Facebook. YES, I’m thankful for the devil spawn that occupies my mind almost all day every day, because it keeps me connected. Connected to people I love who are so far away, that even though I can’t see them or hug them, I can still share with them. It also reminds me that my problems are not so big they can’t be overcome. And that is definitely something to be thankful for.
