Although this week has been a merry-go-sorry type of week, I still have a lot to be grateful for. My parents went away for a few days, from Sunday until Wednesday, for dad’s birthday and their anniversary. Terry, a co-worker from the library, helped me give Mimi her medicine. She also tried some of the gluten-free food I made and gave me some pointers since her sister is also gluten-free. She loved what I made and I was thankful for the pointers.
Again, I’m thankful for people from both jobs and my friends. In another four weeks, a tough anniversary is approaching and to say that I’ve been anxious is an understatement. Sometimes I feel cowardly for my feelings, but Christina said, “don’t fee that way. It’s normal and it will take you as long as you need.” I have read that the experience will always stay with me and anniversaries are generally hard, which makes sense. I have a project planned for my Happiness Box on that day (7 November). I’m thankful for the love that has been shown.
Last night I decided to make a vision scrapbook page to put into my Happiness Box, but I wasn’t feeling too great. It’s rushed and I don’t like the colour theme… I believe in colours as symbols for different things. Today after my full-time job and before I went to the library, I had Lyft drop me off at Michaels and I bought purple paper. Later, I am going to fix it and I will post the finished image a little later. I am thankful for the encouragement and for the friendly Lyft ride.
I have also been scrapbooking Happiness Box 2017. I am in November 2017 now and the goal is to finish it this weekend. I’ve been working on this since January and I can’t wait to get it done.
What are you thankful for today?
