I was driving lost in thought today, my car windows down. There was a guy standing on a corner holding a sign wanting money. He stepped a few feet forward and told me to my smile. That made me think. I have so much to be greatful for. Yes it's true there are some of those people that panhandle for no other reason but to get drug/booze money. I still have so much to be greatful for. I mean I used to be into not so good stuff and never had to do that to support my habbit. I have a car that runs most of the time. I have a great appartment in a safe building that is cool in the summer and warm in the winter that protects me from rain, wind, so on. I have a cat that is always by me. I have food in my cupboards and fridge. I'm starting a new job on Monday. I have a new laptop with high speed internet. I also have cable tv, dvds, cds, dvd player, cd player. I have furniture. This list can keep going on and on forever because there is so much I can and am greatful for. I have no reason to feel sorry for myself even though there are very stressful things going but there are so many people that have it so much worse then I do.
