OT - Thankful Thursday
Happy Thursday, STalkers! Haven't done a Thankful Thursday in a long while, so here we go...
I focusing on people today and am thankful for:
- The years I had my Mom. She passed away 9 years ago today and I miss her still. I'm thankful that her suffering came to an end, even though it pained me to say goodbye. I'm particularly thankful that I had a lovely dream about her just before I awoke this morning. In that dream, she was happy and healthy and laughing - all the more precious as the last several years of her life were anything but that.
- My Dad. We recently celebrated his 90th birthday. I live my life asking What Would Dad Do? He is a man of honesty and integrity, grit and determination, faith and love. If I can be half the man he is, I'm doing a-okay.
- My boss. I had my 6-month performance review today. My manager said the boss asked him to pass on that... "She is ecstatic with the job you're doing and asked that you please keep up the awesome work." It's so nice to be appreciated.
- My DH. He is usually horrible with dates. To my surprise, I walked into the kitchen this morning to find a single red rose (my Mom'd favorite) and a note that said, "I love you, baby".
Hope you're having a good day. *give_rose*
