The last Thursday in July?! Already?! Time, please slow down a little bit! Calvin and Hobbes turned 11 days today, in three more days, it’ll be two weeks old! They’re almost healed, although they’re still in the milky phase.
I went into the office today and I’m thankful for Shetana. She was telling me about her grandson, who just turned 6 months old, and how full of energy he is. Over lunch, she was in a Facetime chat with her daughter and grandson; he was learning how to crawl. She invited me into the conversation and we all chatted while Adonis was crawling a bit. I feel grateful to be included and watching him grow. One aspect of love about work, at both jobs and every job I’ve held. I like being close to my co-workers.
Today is international friendship day and I’m thankful for everyone I call a friend. Jared sent me the postcards I left in his car while I was away; I was having so much fun that it totally slipped my mind until I was packing. I sent the postcards off to other friends and pen pals. I’m thankful that Jared treated that night and I’m thankful to have called him a friend for so long. I’m thankful for Marsha, Christina, Anna, Liz, and everyone who has graced my life for the past 10+ years. Friendships make our lives richer.
I am also thankful for my parents. What are you thankful for today?
