Back to the Thankfulness

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Thanks so much to all of you who commented on yesterdays post.
When I decide to write something that could be "controversial" I get a bit
of a sickness in my gut, because I know people can be very opinionated and feelings
can be hurt. I hesitate at the "post blog" button for a long time, but this time I was truly
looking for some different viewpoints on the situation (not just trying to stir up an argument)
and I really appreciate what everyone said. It gives me a lot to think about. 
Although Holly, who is actually going through the process, said it best: 
When it comes to decisions as big as adoption there really is no right or wrong way.
It's a family-by-family decision.
Much like the decision to use birth control or not, right?......

Anyway -
25 Days of Thankfulness

Days 15 & 16

Other People's "Junk"

Someone's cast-off
A turn-of-the-century, antique fan
Thank goodness for people's old stuff otherwise my house wouldn't be furnished!
I seriously think nearly 60-70% of our furniture is either an antique, thrift store find, or Craig's List deal.
And I love that! Antiques have a story behind them and it's so fun to hunt for beautiful old things. 
And who doesn't love an amazing Craig's List find. 
Like our dining room table from a well-off Santa Barbara family.
It was only a couple years old, in near perfect condition, 
and about 80% off the original Crate & Barrel price! 

And I am so thankful for the ability to run.
I have a love/hate relationship with running, 
yet I would be devastated if I didn't have the ability to run.
How thankful I am for strong legs and a healthy body.
It's a gift I too often take for granted.

I LOVE how you just threw in that comment.

"Much like the decision to use birth control or not, right?"

Good one! I am not going to give my opinon on that one, but myself love watching people get worked up on that subject. It is such a personal decision and I think so many times, we forget to respect other people's personal decisions the way we want ours to be respected.
