Bloggers Unite: World Gratitude Day


Margie: Edna, today is World Gratitude Day. Instead of your usual complaining why not tell about your gratitude?

For instance, I'm grateful that we have our friend, Crystal. I would like to thank her for listening to me rant about you.

Edna: I'm grateful for the self-control that prevents me from slipping alum in your oatmeal every morning.

I'm also grateful for my health. I can see, hear, and walk, and that's a daily blessing.

Margie: Well, you sure don't do any of those things well. I'm also grateful that we had no other siblings. Thank you, Mama and Daddy, for only inflicting this one moron upon me.

Of course, I'm very grateful for Cousin T. I don't know what we'd do without that boy.

Edna: I'm grateful for Cousin T, too. He's got a patient nature and a generous soul.

I'm also grateful that I'm not as mean as you are, Margie. The good Lord saw fit to give me a kind and sweet personality, everyone says so.

Margie: Edna, the good Lord gave you a lying liar nature. The only sweet about you is your sweet tooth.

I'm also grateful for Mr. Hershey. My word, what if he hadn't discovered chocolate?

Edna: Oh Lord. First of all, Mr. Hershey didn't discover chocolate, you ninny. Second of all, if YOU hadn't discovered Hershey's Kisses, maybe you'd still have all of your original teeth instead of those clickety-clack dentures.

I'm grateful for having my own room with a door that shuts and locks.

Margie: I'm glad my hearing aid has an off switch!

It's World Gratitude Day:  Simply show someone what you are grateful for. Thank your family, friends, teacher, church, mentor, coach, boss, or heroes.

Well, maybe I'll get around to a World Gratitude Day post later today. I tried going to their site to signup, but I kept getting "An unexpected error occurred. Please try again." Oh well, maybe later.

Anyway, last week, I reviewed a great unknown folk musician, David Silva.

He has a song that has been going through my mind a lot recently:

Everybody on this world has had a hard life
A life that they begin and end alone
Everybody needs a friend, every now and then
Everybody has more blessings than they know

So, what you are both saying is that you are grateful for each other in a round about way :D

I'm grateful for clothes so that my eyes stay useful and still in my head.

And chocolate, of course. ALWAYS grateful for chocolate!

I am grateful that you two can make me laugh. I need a laugh to keep me from crying all the time.

We should all be grateful that we are still alive.

There is a chinese saying "if king of hades want you to die on the 3rd watch, who can retain you till 5th watch?".
