"It is impossible to be grateful and depressed in the same moment" (Which one will you be today?)

What I'm thankful for:

My nephew Jeremiah who i call JJ...look at him not even 6 months and already killin my lap LOL

My nephew Jai (who i call Toot) whose first day went well after he stopped crying.

My goddaughter who is getting sooo big...she's all legs just like her momma lol

My new tat which reminds me that there is always sunshine when I'm around LOL (I like to remind myself that good can be found in what seems to be bad)

My parents...they are too funny. My dad is forever the comedien.

My Hun...nothing else can be said about how much I love him :) Even though I know we drive each other insane like once a month LOL

Gotta love looking at things that remind you to smile :)

My daddy makes me laugh: Ok so I was talking to my mom and dad the other day and my dad was talking about how this man came up to him and busted out crying. My dad who isn't the crying type (unless he's in the spirit or something) was like wow what in the world, so he's like you lost someone you love and the man is like mother and my dad says well we aren't here for very long, God allows us to live and touch those who we can then we must return home you know that whole thing. So the man is like yes I know but we thought she was getting better and my dad is like oh ok and the man goes on to say she was on life support (me and my mom busted out laughing..i mean not to be mean but I thought life support meant that things weren't good) and my dad is like well it was just her time to go and he keeps talking to the man and the man says yea but I just didn't think she was gonna leave right now so my dad says well how old was she.....the man says 95 (my mom and I are DYING LAUGHING BY NOW). He looks at the man in shock and smiles but doesn't laugh and is just like well it was just her time to go. He told me and my mom he thought the man was gonna say something like 60 or something but 95 and she was on life support...homegirl been trying to check out they been keeping her around..were they waiting for her to turn 100 or something poor thing. If I'm on life support for more than a month and it dont look good please take me off...WOW. I wasn't being harsh but I was I love my daddy he is too funny....I can see them now around her bed on her bday. She done made it another year ya'll, we know she gonna see next year and home girl is slowly declining WOW....I tell ya.

Anytime I get to feeling down about something, I rememeber to be grateful so I don't get to that point of depression. I think about all the people who don't have half the love, support and comforts I have and I kill that 'feeling sorry for myself' stuff.

September 12, 2007  

Nitty...Thank you :)

Shaboogie...I def feel ya, can't be depressed when you realize that there are others so much worse off than you

Beautiful Pictures! I love stories with Pictures, Lol.

You know girl I love kids and those are beautiful children.

I was thinking of showing some of my family too. We will see.

I am going to have to get back into doing this list.

September 12, 2007  

OMG, I forgot to mention the Man. That is too funny, My grandfather passed at 91, and My Dad, said "I know should be grateful for Allll the years I had with him, But I am going to miss him so much" He was almost as bad as that man. Lol, almost Not quite.

September 12, 2007  

Gurl...Doing this list each week reminds me that I have so much to be thankful for :) YES!! man I understand that he is saddened by losing her cause you know moms are special (not to say that dads aren't) but I mean 95 WOW and she was on life support...

(singing) I believe the children are our future, teach them well and ... let them lead the way...give them a sense...of PRIDE

Being Grateful is recognizing that you are in the presence of the Most High God - Depression is not being able to see that
