I am grateful for a room and roof over my head,for three meals a day,medical care. I am grateful for not having the shakng diseases and the acute 'COPD most of them have here. I am grateful for not smoking, for not having Senile Dementa and for being able to not need a wheelchair. I will not pretend i love it here as the new owners have fixed that for me.'but I am grateful for being alive, for having an imagination and for my ability to make graphics. I will try to make myself happier. I do have a passion for writing and will try to do a lot more with that.

@Hatley They are so innocent, and keep you in a good mood. I couldn't imagine going to work, and coming home in a bad mood they run up to the door greet you and then snuggle.

I am comparatively younger but I do have shaky disease. I am grateful that god has given me a nice friend like you to remind me that he has not denied me everything. I do have something to smile about, and that is good enough. :)

It's good to count our blessings once in a while. Pursue your passion. We are responsible for our own happiness.

as I remind myself, this roof does not leak, this time there is a working fridge, this time the bathroom throne flushes. You could still have to worry about snow inside, each time it snows, but you don't. you could have to walk 2 blocks to a public bathroom to shower, but you dont anymore, any time I get frustrated with things.
