A Day of Thanks

There have been moments where I doubt myself. (Actually, it happens quite a bit.) I might spend an entire day believing I’m a bad person; that I’m rude and thoughtless, uncaring, and totally selfish. At times like this all the moments, where I could (and should) have been a better person, rush to the front row and cheer on whatever insecure thought I am holding.

But then there are days like yesterday. I start to think about the friends I keep and I realize how caring and thoughtful they are. Last night, as I looked around at the people who were at my table, it occurred to me that I must not be that bad person I convince myself of sometimes. How else would someone have such great fiends?

Today, I would like to introduce some of the people who make me like myself – the ones who keep me happy about who I am.

(Now, how’s that for proving selfish?)

  5. actually easy. a few years back i took him on a drive to colorado. 1500 miles one way 32 hrs in the car with him. visited some friends and drove 1500 miles in colorado alone and then it was 1500 back. when we got back i pulled in the driveway opened the car doors and unloaded everything………he got out and went pee and climbed back into the car and sat there for two hours. weird dog i tell ya! he’s getting old…he’ll be seven this spring and he’s getting the grey hair around his mouth now. crazy little bastard!

  7. A rude, thoughtless, uncaring, and totally selfish person would never think that they are being rude, thoughtless, uncaring, and totally selfish. So, I don’t think you need to worry about being any of those things. Have a great New Year – both you and TobyJoe – and thanks for the good reading in 2004!
