Sorry…you were probably hoping for the final instalment in my post series. I just couldn’t today. Tomorrow though. I promise.
For today I’m going to jump into ten things of thankful. I need to remember what wonderous things there are in this world. Because after a rough week, one has to really take the time to remember all the things they have to be thankful for.
I am thankful that there are people in this world who try to be the light, no matter what is going on around them. Especially Lizzi (Considerings) and Elly (Buggin’ Word) who can always make me smile.
I am thankful that there are people in this world who are trying to keep people safe. Like the people who started and are participating in the safety pin campaign, and the people who are trying to bring Angela to America (and the ones who started it in England).
I am thankful for puppies. Because who doesn’t love puppies (even if it is Caturday).
I am thankful that I finally have made the time in my life to take care of me. I joined a gym last week and plan on going on my lunch hour twice a week for the next six months.
I am thankful that although I had to pull my child out of school (long story), I have access to care for my child, and was able to find a more appropriate placement for him starting next week.
I am also thankful that I have an understanding employer and was able to flex my workday while the situation with the previous school went in the shitter.
I am thankful that I get to celebrate this evening with some amazing friends for their fiftieth birthdays.
I am thankful (as ever) for an understanding and motivating husband who pushes me to pursue my dreams.
I am thankful for my family’s health and that we live in an area of the world where they can receive good health care.
I am thankful for you and that not only do I have the privilege of writing, that you find my writing worthy of reading.
(See you tomorrow for the final post in my series???)
