I am so grateful that I'm nothing like them. 

 

 

You sure?

 

Things I'm grateful for my girlfriend who always check-up on me I can even get out of the bed without a "where are you going" A very gorgeous woman who loves to lay on me and tell me everything she's thinking wink_face.gif

Quite. I've yet to ask any of the female members on the board to remove their clothing or make sexually charged comments regarding their mildly attractive mothers.

Good, me on the other hand....biggrin.gif Naw just kidding, another thing I'm grateful for is for my mother who loves, loves, and loves. She agitates the hell out of me though...

One of the best to be grateful for.

Someday, most of us (if we're lucky) are grateful for (the years we have/had with) our mother.

 

I salute, to all mothers, and to mine, who gave me my love for good music

I'm grateful that I'm married to a woman who loves me unconditionally and she has a very high WAF. I'm grateful that I found a programme at a local school that will allow me to finally get an associates degree as an Ophthalmological Technician with the best part being I'm not paying for it (actually, If you pay taxes in the U.S.A. we're all paying for it because it's via the Post 9/11 GI Bill from my Air Force days). 

 

I'm grateful for the sense to stay within my own guidelines in regards to stereo and headphone purchases.

I got out of there barely able to walk and mentally, with a mind that was muddled, at times confused, and unable to function properly on the job.

 

With great effort my physical recovery has been gratifying and extremely uplifting. I plan to restart kayak training this year, with the goal to competing again next next season. Mentally I've come a long way, and will be going back to work in the next couple of months. There are still idiosyncrasies with the loss of some right frontal lobe function, but I'm learning to deal with them.

 

The time off has given me the opportunity to get back into audio and music, and that's good. I'm basically a happy camper. How about you?

 

 

 

Hope you'll do better this year and so on.

 

In my case I am happy and I really feel I have everything I could wish for (yes I don't have that great ambition). I have one will and I will work it out. I just want to WORK. lol I mean do more than what I did last year. So I am thankful and as I am a believer, I am really happy I found God (please I don't want to discuss whether there is a God or not, I am happy with mine) and I Thank God for how my life is, for my wonderful wife for peace and everything.

Lots of stuff.

First, that my nephew (6 years old) is OK. His appendix burst a few days before Christmas and had emergency surgery. He pulled through, but had to go back into the hospital because of an infection and partial blockage. That cleared up without a second surgery and he's back at school and doing much better.

I'm thankful that the rest of the family and I are healthy and fine. My parents took a bunch of us on vacation the past week (my nephew and sister, unfortunately, had to stay behind), but we kept in touch and had a great time.

Also very happy to have found the perfect cat in 2010. Someone dumped her in the alley and I took her in. She was bony, a little dirty and missing about 25% of her tail. I don't know how that happened. But I got her fixed up, she's slightly plump now, and is very healthy. I've had 20+ cats over the years, but this one has an amazing personality and loves everyone. You can pass her around a room of strangers and she loves being held by anyone. Super easy to deal with - she'll go into the carrier without the least fuss, stays off the furniture and is great to have around. She'll crash on my legs at night and stay put for 7-8 hours of sleep without waking me up. And lots else. I've loved every cat I've had, but this one is special.

CanJam '10 was awesome and I had a great vacation right after it, too.

There were a few rough spots. In October, a much-loved cousin lost a tough fight with cancer. I miss her terribly, but am slightly comforted that she isn't fighting it any longer. I also got caught in a massive layoff in July - the firm dumped about 50% of personnel, including me. The good news is that another firm picked me up. I'm getting paid more, don't have the insane hours and the people I work with are nicer. I ended up better off and am very thankful for that.

And there's plenty else, but I'm mostly thrilled that my nephew is on the mend, everyone else is fine, and that I took in that little cat that no one wanted.

Fantastic you did that Erik. Those are the cats that need a home, an experienced owner. I always pick a new cat up at the pet shelter (asylum, don't know the appropriate English words for it). The 2-6 weeks old kittens get their way to homes, it's the ones abandoned that need it. The one I have here now, was found in the mud somewhere, skinny to the bone. She has a good life now and to be honest, she's the nicest cat we've had (had 7).

I'm thankful I have a job, a family and friends.

 

Also, that no one has raped or murdered me. I suppose I'd be more thankful if I lived near a waffle house too.

I have much to be grateful for. First, how can I forget about my life, good health, and youth. Though I am not currently using it very efficiently, I plan to improve upon that. I am grateful that I'm not homeless, that I have enough to eat and never fall asleep hungry. That I have enough water to drink, have enough money to even eat 60% Organic/free range/etc. That I have access to public facilities that allow me to read whatever book that I wish, and even if I can't find it there, I Know that I can afford to buy a used copy. That I know the value of the dollar, and don't spend money on unnecessary things (e.g. cable tv). That I have the time, the energy, the health, the privilege be able to even spend time on a headphone forum.

 

Yeah, I need to stop spending time in front of the computer...
