Some days, all I do is gritch from the time I awaken until I drop from orbit. Oh, so abject honesty? Most days.
Then, there comes a day where nothing explodes, no ego implodes from peer pressure, no catastrophe wriggles through the telephone cord or Internet fibre optic. Just peace.
At the end of that day, almost all the other days when I felt like a casualty are not nearly so bad because they are in the rear view mirror. Why?
I have these diminutive humans who believe even at my gritchiest I am better than an orphanage.
I have even more diminutive humans who I can spoil and send home with the ones who are formerly diminutive humans who lived in my home.
I have a best friend with whom I rejoice, cry, laugh, philosophize, sigh, desire, rant, dream, salivate, shoe shop, travel, commiserate and otherwise plot to overthrow the world.
I have a roof over my head which does not leak and is under contract for air conditioning repair year round.
I have a vehicle which can take me home.
I have these furry babies who are convinced I am the alpha-bitch, fortunately.
I have a CrackBerry who remembers all my friends’ time zones, so I know which number to dial at 0426 when I need companionship.
I have more than 10,000 photographs, in case I cannot find Memory Lane on GPS.
I have a laptop with five letters on the keys (and grooves where my fingernails go) because I write more than my doctor thinks I should.
I have doctors who care whether or not I have, take, need or want meds, a Sadist, bed rest or a bag of saline.
I have an audience who has enjoyed, had a need satisfied or been consoled by my books.
I have another audience who laughs; is confounded, confused or gobsmacked; and returns to The M3 Blog to see what I pull out of my hat. A few of them are members of the other audience.
I have as much coffee as I can feasibly drink in a month without an IV bag.
I have a Momma who calls me everyday on her way to work.
I have a Poppa who calls me when Momma does not call him.
I have jeans which are too small to wear because I am not hungry.
I have Grinch pajamas, (Grinch) robe and (Grinch) slippers so I stay snuggly warm.
I have a UPS driver who reminds me the outside world is filled to brimming with stuff to make my life easier or better or more productive.
I have goose-down pillows.
At the end of everyday, I resolve I am definitely a have.
What do you have? Have a wonderful evening.
