i'm happy, so deal with it

Well, here I am, back up on my soapbox. Get ready folks, this is going to be a tough one.

The past few months I've been hounded with sob stories, bombarded with drama and had to listen to one-too-many "Debbie Downers." Yes, I know the economy sucks....yes, I'm aware that a lot of people have lost a lot of money....yes, I know its hard to make ends meet right now...yes, by comparing your life to someone else's you might be on the short-end of the proverbial stick....and yes, I've actually been holding my tongue so far. But could we please take a freaking-stock of our blessings already?!

Please raise your hand if you have one (or more) of the following:
-indoor plumbing
-a doctor within a reasonable distance
-school (to any level)
-the right to vote
-right to assemble
-a bed

Also raise your hand if:
-you're healthy
-loved by someone/have someone to love
-have somewhere to live
-ate food today that you didn't harvest yourself
-used any form of transportation this week

I know that we can all want more, or we could all do more....but serously, if you have your hand up at this point, please re-direct it to cover your mouth....because I don't want to hear any of your complaints...look how blessed you are!

And what am I going to do this rainy weekend with $0.78 in my checking account? Eat beans and rice with my husband and sit lounging around, re-counting all of our many many blessings.
