31 days of thankful, Day 28 (sorta late)
Remember how on Monday, my dearest Tommy had food poisoning?
Well, the theory was that it wasn’t food poisoning, because if it was s stomach flu, I’d be sick too, since we’re always together & we kiss & stuff.
Well, apparently sharing is caring, because now I’m sick!
even though it is quite redundant, as I have been thankful for being physically ok a few times, I am going to be thankful that I don’t always feel like I do this evening/now morning, which is horrific. I haven’t been sick like this in a LONG time, and I can’t wait for it to be over, and something that doesn’t happen again for YEARS!
31 Days of Thankful, Day 24
To me, it is not late, because it’s still Thursday to me because I haven’t gone to bed yet! Oh, you didn’t know the world revolves around me? For shame!
Anyway, I am going to try to make this as short and as sweet as I possibly can, but I am not sure how that will go.
Today, I am thankful for days that I don’t have time for Tumblr.
At first I felt guilty that so often, these “31 Days of Thankful” posts were coming a day late, because I felt like it made me seem irresponsible, or showed that I lacked focus, or even somehow made me seem less grateful, but these things couldn’t be further from the truth. As some sort of Christmas gift to me, I found a new perspective.
Until about five minutes ago, I was wrapping presents. Last minute, yes, but that’s how I do things. Right before that, I was making Tommy his Christmas present (more on that later, though not in this blog), which was clearly also last minute…
And I thought about it a minute.
Today, I didn’t have time for Tumblr, and it wasn’t the first time.
But every time I didn’t have time for Tumblr, something else (something for which I should be and am thankful!) was what was stopping me.
Whether it was spending time with family and/or friends…
Buying or wrapping or giving gifts…
Being at school (either as a teacher or a grad student)…
Or really anything else, something amazing was going on in my life.
Cheesy, yes, but gratifying as well.
In case you haven’t noticed over the last few weeks, I am a severely lucky lady.
And I feel like this is the most poorly-written blog entry ever (it sounded better in my head!), but I am also a very tired lady! And my brothers are going to wake me up soon to tell me that Santa was here, so I better go to sleep!
I am so thankful for everything!
P.S. I’d say “Merry Christmas!” but as you remember, it’s still Christmas Eve right now for me! ;oP
31 Days of Thankful, Day 22 (a day late again)
How am I still a day behind? I didn’t have time in the evening last night like I thought I did, I guess!
Well, anyway, a while back, my sister asked me to come in and speak to her Applied Communications class about my jobs, and yesterday was the day I came in and talked.
It’s funny, because I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time stopping and looking at the big picture sometimes. I am very detail-oriented, and it’s very easy for me to get caught up in the details of life and lose sight of what is really going on.
It’s not until I’m asked to make a power point presentation about my life as an Immersion teacher, model, and makeup artist that I realize that I am lucky to be employed, and have some pretty sweet jobs…
So today’s day of gratitude is dedicated to my pretty awesome jobs - both seen through my eyes, and through the eyes of the high school students who seemed pretty interested when I was talking yesterday.
