This week the word to ponder is: APPRECIATE
verb, -at·ed, -at·ing.
1. to be grateful or thankful for: They appreciated his thoughtfulness.
–verb (used with object)
2. to value or regard highly; place a high estimate on: to appreciate good wine.
3. to be fully conscious of; be aware of; detect: to appreciate the dangers of a situation.
4. to raise in value.
–verb (used without object)
5. to increase in value: Property values appreciated yearly.
So often we forget to appreciate what is in our lives. I can tell you from experience that it is much easier to appreciate what you have than to moan and whine about what you don't have. Just as simple as having a roof over your head and a few coins in your pocket puts us miles ahead of millions of others in the world.
Now, of course, I have to put my own little twisty humor into this post (I hope you appreciate it)
And lastly, one thing I appreciate is that Kendra finally got the boot last night on Dancing with the Stars. I have yet to be able to appreciate how shaking your surgically enhanced taa-taa's in front of a creepy old man in a smoking jacket makes you a STAR. Hellooooooooooo........
