    Things we take for granted

    What simple everyday things do you take for granted? My dad told us this summer they're going to be shooting a movie here (With Daniel Day Lewis or someone..they never do stuff here..lol), and I was like why it sucks here..we don't even have mountains. And my dad was told me about this dentist from Ontario who though there was a dam somewhere used to make the water in the river thing going in and out at certian times of the day..like at one point in the day, its full, later, it has less water..Till someone told her its the tides which they don't have there. I never thought of that before..I'm always at the beaches and such too.

    lol...
    my mom says, 'Isn't hot water the best thing they ever invented??"

    when were were small she'd sit by the window on a horribly
    rainy night, look outside and said to us, 'how would you like to me homeless tonight and where would you go?'

    shelter
    a warm bed
    clean clothes and
    a family to love and share things with..

    Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all -
    Together we stand
    Divided we fall.

    I laugh, therefore? I am.

    I'm embarrassed again to say that I end up taking most things for granted.....which is not a good thing......

    until I read a post like this.

    Taking things for granted means that you don't think about them too often and always assume that they are there for you (people and things) until they are gone.

    Things I'm thankful for: (just to name a few)
    My family (immediate and furkids and PT family)
    My job
    My health (incl. hearing and sight)

    And, of course, Dick's Place....
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see

    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    I take alot of things for granted...and I feel really bad everytime I see a homeless person or a tv program about kids in third world countries. I mean, I have a blasting stereo, nice fairly expensive computer, expensive lamp, new mountain bike, expensive blanket, and much more in my own room and I just feel so horrible everytime I see someone less fortunate than me. Things I don't take for granted though...are true friends and Kai. I treat Kai with the love and attention I would give him as if it was my last day on earth.

    Things taken for granted:

    NOT having your jaw wired shut.

    Being able to blow your nose without potentially hemorraging (sp).

    Eating solid food.

    Feeling healthy.

    Looking like yourself. I've included a picture to emphasize this one. This was me 2 days after surgery.

    The love of family and pets.
