Ah, another 9 days until we’ll be saying “goodbye, 2022!” We’re on the 5th night of Hanukkah, Christmas is in 3 days, and Kwanzaa is in 4 days. There are other holidays mixed in; the world is full of celebration right now. There’s a lot to be grateful for.
Teresa, one of my friends on Writing.com, made a post last night about all of the holiday cards she has received. It has made her feel loved. I’ve been at Terry’s cat sitting, so I haven’t been home to check my mail. However, for the past few weeks I’ve been receiving Hanukkah and season’s greetings cards. I go home tomorrow night and I’ll take a photo of my bounty; I’m hoping I received others. However, I decided to take a photo of the bounty I have at Terry’s. Terry left me a gift (Trader Joe’s gift card and GF popcorn), then the library gave me a gift, and so did the attorneys I work for. Of course, I also have the bracelet David gave me… that’s a special gift. I’m quite grateful.
Yesterday when I went back to work at the County, I had a surprise waiting for me on my chair. The attorneys gave me $100, which I’ll use for the holiday scrapbook I want to make. I’m verklempt and grateful. The card and note they left me made me even more verklempt.
Even the nice gift from the library has me all verklempt and grateful too:
I’m also thankful for David, my friends, and family. What are you thankful for today?
