I had planned a different sort of post for today. Several days ago, I began thinking about the blessings in my life and words began to string together like colored Christmas lights. Alas, there was a burnt out bulb in that particular string so I have to switch to Plan B.
You see last night, I relapsed into a state of illness that has been affecting me for over a week. Actually this is going on two weeks. Regardless, all my plans for everything went awry. I woke up feverish, the bird was not thawed to my liking, my apartment was a nightmare in general. But never fear, this is not going to be one of those posts.
I’m tired. But I am so thankful for the the good things in my life.
I am thankful for my family. Even though I may feel like a changeling sometimes, I know that my family is as wonderful as they are quirky.
I am thankful for my friends, who always come through when I need them and support me when I need a shoulder to cry on.
I am thankful that I have a job and am able to work. I know times are rough and it is a blessing to have a way to support myself. And I am thankful that my direct deposit hasn’t kicked in because I could do some serious damage on Black Friday. 😛
I am thankful for everyone who cares about others. Because they are the ones who make this world a better place. And I am lucky to have so many people like that in my life.
And now, because I am so tired and still under the weather, I am thankful that Thanksgiving 2011 is done and over, with all the food turning out wonderfully and everyone going home content. And I am especially thankful for the Nyquil I just took and the sleep that is already tugging me into dreamland.
