Gratitude For Today:
1) being able to decorate the xmas tree with your mom
2) knowing that a family friend was in a car accident, crawled through fire to get out of the car, thus burning his legs and side BUT despite the numerous skin grafts he is alive.
3) knowing that your mom has the same sense of humor for today
4) that relatives only visit once in a while and you only have time to do dinner. shame.
5) that despite your not knowing them well, your cousins can do brilliant things
6) that the one employee can't stand showed up for work. wouldn't have wanted him to be late after all, since that would mean he would be fired. Lucky me.
