Silver Linings

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Re: Silver Linings

I'm grateful that I get to see my wife everyday.

We spent the last 3 years living 1500 miles apart because I was military and she stayed in NM for school. Then I got deployed and it was even worse. Now I'm back in the states and after much begging the Air Force stationed me in New Mexico! Everyday when she walks in the door brightens my day.

One of the funniest lines I've ever read! True too!

Re: Silver Linings

I am grateful for being able to get in and out of bed, down and up out of a seat, and drive my car. I have a joyful life, happy marriage, and abundance of healthful food. My home is paid for, and we can heat it.

Re: Silver Linings

I am grateful that silver linings have an anti-microbial property, helping to reduce odors.

Er... wait, what are we doing.

Re: Silver Linings

Well you know, Susie, you have a point there.
A friend of mine - not a very close friend, but someone I knew from an online game, and who I'd met several times, and who was an all round good guy - died from aggressive lymphoma on Saturday. He was only 30. And much as I ***** and moan about getting older, I've come to realise that it is actually a privilege. Not everyone gets that chance.

Re: Silver Linings

I'm grateful that I can use my level of fitness in comedy. I'll be talking about it at The Broadway Comedy Club in NYC on feb 16. Sometimes I'm the joker. Sometimes I'm the joke.

Re: Silver Linings

This may sound sappy -- I am grateful for my wife and two children. I am grateful to live in a country and a time where I have a decent job, a warm home and I don't have to worry where my next meal is coming from (as long as my wife cooks it. Otherwise that may become a concern).
