News Hour with Jim Lehrer

It's 7:43pm.
Tuesday night.
Jim Lehrer's on.
Theyre talking about/interviewing/debating politics, candidates, issues, and the like.
Of course.

I would like to take this moment to say (just in case I am not properly thankful in every moment of my life)-

Thank You God.
That even though we are a one income family, we are not only surviving, but thriving.

Thank you, Goddess Mother, that we own our home, and are not in danger of losing it.

Thank you, Supreme Being, for the pluck that allows us to brazenly and assuredly Go Forth.

Even though we've the highest (or very nearly so) gasoline prices in our country ($4+ still)- we are able to get to work (bike), trek, and adventure as we see fit.
Not that we are disrespectful and disdainful of our peers' suffering - just that we are feeling hale, happy, fit, and free from oppression.

And not that we are a wealthy family, and are not a bit late on this, that, and the other from time to time.
But we're alive.
We're healthy.
We're not living in fear.

It is absolutely not my intention to point out how special or deserved we are.

But I feel Blessed - and would like to acknowledge my Gratitude sincerely and deeply.

We're not any more worthy than anyone else.
We haven't done things exactly right, or safe.
Eric and I aren't the most adult, responsible people alive.

But we are blessed.

Thank You.
Thank You.
Thank You.

Blessings and Love to all.
