Stance by Jennie Rosenbaum
It’s thanksgiving in the US and, as an American, I still celebrate it with some friends and food. it’s a good time to think back, just before the madcap holidays begin and appreciate all that we have that we are thankful for. Recently, I’ve been struggling more and more with depression. it’s a problem that many chronic pain sufferers face and most of the time I beat it and stay focussed on my dream but sometimes it gets the better of me. the simple act of gratitude has really helped with this lately and now that we are on the verge of thanksgiving I want to take a moment to share all the things I am thankful for.
I’m thankful for my wonderful supportive husband who understands me and my moods, from artistic temperament to the chronic pain dumps, and loves me anyway. I couldn’t ask for a better partner to go through life laughing, singing and crying with.
I have two of the best cats ever. period. I’m so thankful for the laughs and love they give me every day.
I’m thankful that I have passion and talent and drive. I know what I want in my life and I’m working towards getting it.
I’m thankful for my brilliant friends and family, both close and distant, who are always there for gossip, laughs, advice and hugs.
I’m thankful for hugs! hugs are a wonderful thing. The world needs more hugs.
I’m grateful for my iMac. seriously this is a sexy sexy machine.
I’m grateful for the interwebs without which I would never have met so many of you wonderful people, nor would I have progressed my career to the point it’s at or have had so many delightful, daily distractions.
and I’m thankful for all of you, for reading this blog, buying my artwork, sending in your comments and coming to my shows. thankyou all!
