|Last Year's Thanksgiving!|
I wanted to take the time today, on Thanksgiving, to blog. I'm not entirely sure why I was moved to do so, but I'm going with it since I've missed blogging.
About 6 weeks ago now I was hired at a local Starbucks, so I FINALLY have a job, which has been one of the reasons I have not been blogging... not as much free time on my hands. Alas, I promised myself I would still blog somewhat regularly because it keeps me sane... well as sane as I can get.
Okay, back to the reason I started this blog; to share a little gratitude and prepare you for the upcoming disasters you'll be reading. (I have 2 already written, I just need to edit and add some finishing touches.)
I want to start by thanking my BFF, Mrs. Hotaru, for encouraging me to blog. She inspires me in every way and makes me want to share my unique, and hopefully somewhat humerus, if not always stimulating voice. :)
It's nice to have this day set aside just to give thanks and be reminded of all we have to be grateful for. Being grateful can completely change your outlook on the day. The reminder to be grateful helped me out today as I was at work for the majority of the morning into the early afternoon, and still had some cooking to do when I came home.
I am particularly grateful for everyone who has entered my life, no matter how brief our interactions were! And I'd like to give a shout out to all my fellow England Abroaders, whom I miss terribly! MISSING all of you on this Thanksgiving because it's reminding me of how WONDERFUL last yer was!!!!!
We can sometimes forget how much our lives can be affected by one person, regardless of direct contact or not. without the friends that my friends have, my friends would not be the same loving, caring, kind, respectful, and joyful people I choose to have in my life. So even if I have never met you, I am grateful for you (especially if you're taking the time to read this. You deserve my sincerest gratitude for caring that much.)
If I am grateful for perfect strangers, imagine how grateful I am to the actual friends and family in my life! I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! And though I definitely do not always show it, or communicate it very well, if at all, you are my world, and it would not be the same without you! :D
