The last Thursday in April. Can you believe it?! This year truly is flying by…
…with that said, I have a lot to be grateful for on this last Thursday in April. I’m so thankful for Tribe12. I’m thankful that they’ve welcomed me and include me in events.
On Sunday evening, we gathered on Zoom for a pre-Oscars party, a red carpet event. Then when the Oscars started, we moved over to Discard. It was a fun evening. On Saturday evening, they’re having a Zoom campfire and tomorrow they’re giving me a goodie bag for Saturday evening. I’m grateful for this.
I love my book discussion group and it feels so great to converse not only with others my age, but some others that are converting as well. It makes me feel less alone and the book we are reading speaks to my soul.
I’m thankful for my synagogue. I’m still waiting for the Rabbi to get back to me, but April (and May) has been filled with Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and Shivas. I was feeling depressed on Sunday, I have SAD, but I have summer SAD. When the days get longer and warmer, my mental health takes a nose dive. I’m more of a winter gal. I love shorter and colder days – I can do more, where in the summer I have to hibernate.
I’m also loved. I love myself; I have a Rabbi and religious community who loves me too. Saturday started the mental health nose dive and I decided to turn my camera off during the service. One of the congregants sent me a private message and asked if I was okay. I am loved. I also have the love of friends and family. That is enough. ❤
What are you thankful for today?
