Wow! We are halfway through the eighth month and we only have one more month of summer (and winter in the southern hemisphere). I’ve been stressed lately, but I decided that I am going to choose gratitude rather than resentment. I am being helped because I am loved and people want me to succeed. With that in mind, I am going to savour each day one day at a time.
Yesterday was mum’s birthday and I sent her a beautiful image via text for her 55th year. She loved it, and she is a big fan of Dancing Cat. I was going to buy her this card, but copying the image and texting her worked just as well.
While we don’t always get along, I am thankful for her, just like I am thankful for my dad. On Sunday, we went out to lunch and had a great time. We went to the Famous Dave’s in Christiana, DE and laughed over BBQ. I was grateful that they had GF options and it was just a lovely day.
Today I had lunch with James and we chatted about everything going on. We ate lunch and took a walk. We have been friends for 12 years and I’m thankful for his friendship. I am thankful that the handful of friends I have have been part of my life for so long, I am thrilled that we are continuing to grow our friendship. Friendship is a beautiful thing.
Remember when I met Sammy at The Stonewall Inn in NYC? Well, he moved to King of Prussia and we ran into each other! We chatted for 20 minutes and I was so glad that we recognized each other. When I waved to him, he was so happy to see me and I can’t wait to grow this friendship too.
I am thankful for my full-time job and library job as well. I’ve been working over-time at my full-time job and have been working a different schedule at the library; I’m thankful for what both managers do for me. Today I was looking at the collages at the desk at my full-time job and I have an idea for a future blog entry.
What are you thankful for?
