There is a beautiful blog that I was recently 'turned onto' my one of my fave artist peeps..
T!m Holtz was sharing some info one day, actually he was giving away a scrapbook related class that featured Jason and his wife Kolette.. Anyway, I checked out Jason's blog and have been hooked ever since. Here is a link: Jason's Blog. Today Jason blogged about being grateful he could pick his nose.
Every time I read one of his posts I cry my eyeballs out. Today there was a fine line between laughing my a** off, and crying. So I did both.
I cry because I am so darn grateful for the things I have in my life, right now, that I seem to take advantage of .. my health, my family, a roof over my head, a beautiful view, a great life style, the fact that I can sit here on my chubby rump and type.. Oh yeah. And see. And use my arms, legs, voice. All of it.
I am great at being ungrateful.
I am great at complaining about the things I don't have (I even have a list of things I want and feel so deprived because I don't have them!)...
And Jason reminds me every single time I see his blog to be grateful. To pick myself up out of the depths of blackness that I crawl into, and thank God that I have what I do have.
And yes, I am grateful I can pick my nose.
And that my son pick's his, too. In front of God and all his creation at the table. In public.
