It has been a strange day for me. I woke up tired and have felt very sad all day. Tomorrow (as I type this) is Halloween. For some reason I'm dreading it this year. I just want to crawl into bed and hide under the covers for a few days. No idea why.
I watched the Rally to Restore Sanity and found it wonderful, but spent much of the time - much of the day - on the edge of tears. But the rally was wonderful - good music, funny, witty humor - and a profound closing statement by Jon Stewart that I share below. I think this, along with my gratitude list, will be the total of today's daily reminder.
Some things I'm grateful for today:
- my furnace
- my home
- Jon Stewart
- Stephen Colbert
- the 250,000 or so people who attended his rally
- people with good sense and good hearts
- My great niece who's turned 10 yesterday
- my fuzzy robe
- legs that hold me up (sort of)
- my microwave
- bombs that don't go off
- the right to vote
