Happy belated Thanksgiving!
After a crazy two weeks of starting a new job, being sick, and life in general, I packed my bags Wednesday night to stay with my parents for the duration of the holiday weekend.
To be completely honest, I haven’t been feeling my best emotionally. I have been pessimistic and withdrawn, overanalyzing and dramatizing every minute detail of my life. I will get into this in more detail in a private post (to be written later today), but the point of this mini-spiel is announce that I realized something.
Because once again, God has had to knock me over on my lazy arse for me to open my eyes and see what’s really important.
So although it sounds cliche, this year I am thankful for:
- A wonderful husband who is one of the few people who truly understands me. Even if he doesn’t agree with everything I do, he supports me 100% and always views me in high regard, encouraging me and helping me believe that I can do anything. He makes me laugh like no other and always takes the time to give me body-enveloping hugs that can never be replicated.
- My silly and crazy family. I was born into a family of over-achievers, and they have always inspired me to reach for the best and never settle. I am especially thankful for the relative good health of my father, who has been having some medical issues, and I pray that he will continue on this path.
- My friends who never cease to make me laugh, reminisce about old times, and look forward to the future together.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
And since Thanksgiving has now passed and we’re officially into Christmas season, I shall leave you with a link to a holiday-inspired internet pop-up book (yes, you read that correctly) called It’s a Wonderful Internet.
Cleverly written and wonderfully designed, this interactive story revels in the wonders of the web in a fantastic, Dr. Seuss-like manner.
