So, yeah, I try my best on here to kvetch with my tongue firmly in my cheek and take a timeout every once in awhile to be grateful. I don't do it often enough, but if there is anything I hope people get out of my nutty posts about what I bought today or about fashion or decor or being thrifty is this: don't let our materialistic society and all those voices berating you about what you don't have get you down. You can create things of beauty without all the so-called trappings of "living well" that come festooned in price tags that attempt to put a value on your self-worth. If you are alive, you're already ahead of the game. So don't let what you have keep your score for you.
Today I am thankful for a roof over my head, for hot water, bubble baths and a warm bed, for so much food I should probably diet, and for a good book to read when the hour's quiet, for love I have felt and for laughter I've heard....and for you, Dear Readers, who read every word.
