What I have:

I have great kids (well most of the time)

I have great friends (only a phone call away)

I have great family (most of the time 8))

The in-laws are pretty great too

I have an open mind, I can accept what is given to me

I have faith that things will work out (even if it’s not “my” plan)

I have lots of junk food (keeps the kids busy)

I have an understanding of death that brings me peace

I have an acceptance of death (only because I have no choice)

I have pretty fast internet

I have a wonderful fantacy life that I can visit whenever I want

I have fantastic memories

I have loved and been loved

I have a warped sense of humor, I crack myself up at times

I have the ability to be responsible and act like a grwn-up (even if I don’t wanna)

I have lots of upper torso strenth (thanks to splitting wood)

I have very creative housekeeping skills (LOL)

I have the best excuse to be lazy and not get out of bed (although my kids don’t care)

I have hope

I have a nice ass (I may need that later)

I have people who care about me

I have the coolest angel watching over me (even if he tells me what to do)

See, I have no reason to wallow in self pity.  I’m gonna put on my big girl panties and kick some butt.  No more mopey and whiney.  (well, maybe…remind me tomorrow)

  1. Wow, I’m glad I found this blog. I don’t have as many kids as you do but I can really identify with lots of what you say!

  2. K, I didn’t realize that you just lost your man. Perhaps I can’t exactly identify then. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  3. Laura,
    You DO have a nice ASS! I hope your big girl pants are pretty enough for it! You are loved, cared about, and have so many people that are VERY proud to call you a friend. I’ve ALWAYS admired your mothering skills and your “creativeness” wink. Keep hanging in there. The sun will shine again.
    Love, Jen
