Today i am grateful for My best friend and my Sons, Mike has been my live in partner for 10 years and he is my best friend. Mike has made things so easy for me to work very off shifts. I can trust that he can talke care of our son while im sleeping from working graveyards. He is kind and generous. He helps my father on the weekends with chores at his house.
For my sons, they are the best. I know that every parent says that about his or her children. Seriously my youngest is so smart. He is doing so well in school and has a funny personality. He is so fun to be around. He makes me laugh. My oldest is doing so well in sobriety and working and has given me 5 great grandchildren. they have moved out and in to my fathers home one of them. Anyway life is weird how it turns out and the emothions you feel about things on one day versus another day.

Today i am grateful for my cat Daisy Doo. She past away this evening from a brain infection. But what i am grateful for is she taught me unconditional love. She would always greet me with meows and want to sleep next to me at night. She was a talker. She always wanted loves but only when she thought she needed them, not when you wanted to give them. LOL :) She would want the Cold Ceral but you had to chew it for her first, and if she really wanted it she would try and take it from your mouth. LOL :) Gosh, WE WILL MISS HER ! She hated being on the other side of the door from me. If i had a door closed and she could not come in (especially the bathroom) she would stick her little paw underneath the door and meow to let me know she wanted in. She was my little baby. She would of been 1 yr old next month. Daisy we will miss you so much. She was such an entitled cat, thinking she could do anything she wanted. LOL :) What i would give to be able to tell her to get down off the counter one more time. Mu little daisy doo doo, Mommy will miss you and will never forget the lessons and gifts you brought me. Chase those butterflies all you want now. We love you.

I have to say that i am grateful today for my Job and a boss that is very aggressive. She has told me that she has had unsolicited reports from other employee's that i have made negative comments. HMMMM...... I guess i am grateful that i can appreciate hearing feedback. i feel very bad that people interpret my attitude as being negative and maybe they are right. I just can't see it. So im thankful that i am teachable and humble enough to hear that my attitude needs adjusting. And also that i am willing to do something about it. Because i dont want my impact to be a negative one. So thank you Becky for being honest enough to tell me. :)
Today i am grateful for my son Mikey....... He is the best and i love him. He has put up with alot latey. We have my oldest son Seth and his wife April and their 2 kids living at our home. Mikey has been gracious enough to give up his room and the privacy that goes along with that. His playstation his toys, his dressers where his clothes are. They have a little girl who is almost 4 and has absolutely been allowed to ruin his stuff. And he is expected to just accept that. So today i am grateful that he is not like that. That he is kind and generous and yes sometimes he can be a little boy and be mean to her. But for what he has to put up with he is a great little dude. :) I Love ya Mikey and this wont last forever. ( I hope) But we are being taught how to be of service to people who need help. :) And we will clean up your room and you will get it back to do whatever you want in it. Love your Mom

So i would like to share that i have just been on my mother's Blog. When life hands you cancer.... I want to paint a picture... So i am work (graveyard) and here i am crying with such gratitude in my heart. She is battling cancer and is such an amazing woman. My mother is loved by so many! Several people have just run the race for a cure 5k, and it was in honor of my mother. So i need to take a few minutes and compose myself because i am in tears....... (good thing it is the graveyard shift) LOL! : ) Mom, i just want to tell you i love you. I am so grateful to be blessed with such a strong family. I guess you could say i am blessed to have a family at all. To those of you who do not know, I was adopted. You have raised some of the most motivated, selfless, compassionate, intelligent people i know. Believe me i have looked and studied other families in my travels through out my life. I dont know another family that comes close to ours ( Dunford's & Wilson's). Thank you for sharing your unconditional love and way with everyone you know. I have not met a single person out there that has not been the better for knowing you. For those of you who don't know, For a stay at home mother, my mom was so busy making people's lives better. Helping where she knew it needed it the most. Mom you are so loved by many and i know we haven't see eye to eye on things. But i never once did not listen to you. I might not of liked what you had to say but in times of desperation and panic it's your voice i hear. Thank you for always being there for me. No matter what. I love you no matter what.
