OT - Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for:

  • DH, my rock, who came home to me still awake, sitting in a corner, bawling. He actually sat down on the floor, pulled me onto his lap, rocked me, and told me everything will be okay.
  • PT shoulder success. It looks like I'll be released next week as "100%".
  • Yoopers - who have not waited for the bloody government and have pulled together. Neighbors and strangers, working together and making HUGE dents in the destruction from the flood. People donating their personal equipment, their bodies, their time because their love for Copper Country and its people is so strong.
  • Strangers who are helping. One man drove over 1000 miles to deliver 100+ cases of water for the workers. In fact, donations are coming in from all over. It warms the heart.

And last, but certainly not least...

  • You STalkers. I was amazed and humbled by the outpouring of concern, compassion, friendship, and love. Bless you all. Give rose

In no particular order:

  • My amazing job. I've had plenty of not-so-amazing, and never want to take this gig for granted
  • DH. Also amazing, I just post about our conflicts (98% SS, 1.9% money, and 0.1% everything else)
  • SS18: Without whom I wouldn't have met ya'll, and without whom I'd never be any form of parent (mid-40's & never planned to have bio's), and who I do dearly love in spite of his behaviors
  • Our pets. Still have my cats & DH's dog but had to put my two elderly dogs down this past year (lots of sadness about that, even though it was their times... you all know how it goes missing man's best friends once they go Rainbow Bridge). I love these critters so much!
  • Our home. I love where we live, and love our neighbs. 
  • Amazing produce. The abundance of avocados, berries, organic veggies... I live in farm country and it's so awesome. Local honey and eggs and citrus... so excellent. 
  • The interwebs. Remember when it was a trip to the library or an encyclopedia? Having a super computer in the palm of my hand I can look anything up, and make connections in a community of my online peeps
  • Lastly, for the recent ST poster who got the Beastie Boys "Sabotage!" In my head the other day... it's still going! "All ya'll... SABOTAGE!" LOLz

IMHO, the best thing about Summer is the selection of fresh fruit and produce!!
