OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki's picture

We've circled back around to Thursday, STalkers!

Some of us have been struggling; depression, finances, seasonal affective disorder, tragedy, stephell... We all have days when it takes great effort to get out of bed and get moving. Some days, that's the best you can do, but you do it! You didn't give up - you pushed yourself to keep pushin' on. And while it's not always easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel, take a moment to reflect on a bright spot in your life. It's there. I promise you. {{{HUGS}}}

I am thankful for:

  • having a job, a reliable vehicle, a roof over my head, and food to eat.
  • memories of my loved ones. They may not be on this earth, but they're still in my heart.
  • being able to find beauty in something by looking a little harder.
  • the tragedies in my life that have made me stronger and proved that I still have fight left in me.
  • my DH, who is my rock. When I'm feeling more broken than usual, he always finds a way to tell me I'm needed.
  • STalk. There are days when giving a little something to a fellow STalker who is down is the best part of my day.

I like the reminder that there are things to be grateful for Smile

  • My furbabies love me, DH's included, he follows me around and sits at my feet, while mine thinks he's an 80 lb lap dog.
  • I have a SUPER cute turtle who's friendly and likes chilling on the couch with me
  • I have a bed so I can get some good sleep (this is literally the highlight of having a house for me after over a a year and a half on a darn air mattress...)
  • After a rough night trick-or-treating DH came home from class and just hugged me for a bit, it helped

I'm not thinking of tons right now, I definitley woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning... lol But thanks for the reminder that they're are good things, even when we're overwhelmed Smile

PA, I initially read that as DH follows me around and sits at my feet... Lol

Aniki needs more coffee (for which she is extremely thankful!!!

LOL. I wish, maybe he'd listen better... Because DH's dog hangs on basically every word I say (while mine is spazzing out in the corner somewhere or throwing his hedgehog stuffed animal around or staring at the turtle... That dog was not born with a lot of brain cells, but he makes up for it in personality...)

Your DH might be spazzing out in the corner somewhere or throwing his hedgehog stuffed animal around or staring at the turtle... LOL

My parents!

Just received a phone call from my parents; Mom, 96, Dad, 94, for a chitty-chat about football; Dad's a Buffalo Bills fan (so sad!), I'm a passionate Ben Roethlisberger fan and we love to discuss 'shotgun out of the pocket' and 'rushing'. Having these amazing, bright and loving folks in my life, in my 70's, feels like such a blessing!

My DH is recovering, wonderfully, from a badly broken leg and I'm so grateful that he's fit and healthy enough to be improving by the minute. Rags, some of you tough fellows make your bride's lives a whole lot easier!

Hola, Siempre!

Almost finished with your degree - que bueno!! I never went back to get my degree because I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

xoxoxo

Aniki I don't either but its something I started a long time ago that I want to see through. Something I started but never finished and it helps in order to get my foot in the door.

I'm with you on this one though......

don't know what I want to be when I grow up Smile

The degree I was pursuing, well... I cannot go into that field and would have to change gears. Plus, there is the issue of money. Ugh.
