“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” – William Arthur Ward
As I sit here trying to think of a way to adequately thank all of you for being a part of the Twitchy family (however warped and dysfunctional we all may be), my son is hanging out in my office making a lot of noise, and being a teenager in general. At first, I was sort of annoyed with him rapping along with Limp Bizkit (mom, I like your old music … OLD), but then it hit me that these moments of writing for you all with “the boy” in my office asking me if I’m older than Fred Durst could soon be few and far between. There is so much about what I get to do for a living that I love, and it’s easy to forget how much I do love it when I’m writing about some crazy person saying even crazier things that I KNOW will either make you all laugh or tick you off.
I have so much to be thankful for, INCLUDING the mouthy teenager who thinks being born in the 20th century somehow was the “olden days.”
Ya know, a lot of people say, “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” … and I’m sorry to say, that’s total BS. I know, it’s a nice saying and something people who do cool stuff for a living are SUPPOSED to say, but it’s not true. When you do something you love, like I get to do, you work harder at it than anything else because since you love it, since you are lucky enough to do something you love for a living, you do NOT want to take it for granted. Make sense? And that’s why I’m so thankful for each and every one of you who take the time to click a story and read it.
Time is valuable, clicks are actually valuable, and like my job, I never want to take any of you for granted. Yeah, yeah, that’s super mushy and not at all how I usually write, but it’s the truth. Don’t worry, after Thanksgiving, I’ll be back to finding clever ways to curse without cursing and new insults for Biden and his moronic motley crew of an admin, but today and tomorrow, I’m in thankful mode.
Thankful for job, for my silly office, for my mouthy kids, for my wonderful husband, and amazing family … and for the two barky potatoes who sit on my feet every day when I work. I’m also thankful for this country. Even if the guy currently in charge can’t figure out if he should scratch his watch or wind his butt, we live in such an incredible country. A country that will endure regardless of the turnips and lawn flamingos trying to run things right now.
*steps off soapbox*
