100 Days of Happy: Day #81/ Thankful Thursday 3/27/2014

Day #81: I think spring might finally be here! Robins and other birds were out chirping today!

I want to share this with you. My mom's co-worker posted this this morning and I feel like it has to do with how I currently feel and what I'm thankful for:

As I was waiting for the bus today, I saw an older woman I hadn't seen in a long time. She used to go to the senior center with nan (she probably still does) and she was walking. I said hi and we started talking. She told me, "Have faith. Never lose your faith. You will get a job or jobs. Never give up!" She continued her walk and the bus came. It made me think, despite everything that has happened: I have never gave up and I keep my faith. I'm not religious, but I'm spiritual and I will never give up my faith. Last week I saw my god-father's sister and she said, "you should say a prayer to nan. Talk to her. She'll help you." I've been reading some spiritual literature and talking to her. I'm going to write something, which I will when I log off of here. I feel thankful for how far I have come and how much farther I'll go.


  1. Today I interviewed for Wegman's!
    I came out of it feeling like I lost all chances ever for gainful employment, but they told me they'd let me know by next week their final reaction.
    Matt made me feel better, but Thursday is his BUSIEST DAY, so I don't know what to do for him when we reconvene Sunday early-afternoon. It probably will involve something like last Monday, which made me feel so guilty for not grabbing a breathmint before visiting.

    Regarding religion, a different Matt encourages Taoism, rereading the Tao of Pooh. He says that might relax me. I did study Chinese religion at Guizhou University...

    My own departed grandmother recommended me Pasternak. So when the first Matt took me to the bookstore, I got it in Russian. He offered to help me pay for eating afterwards since it was expensive, but I loudly refused, since graduate students are not wealthy.

    1. Good luck!

      I applied at more Detroit jobs. Mom is now unhappy again and thinks I should live locally. Nope. I have nothing here, it's too darn expensive and not many opportunities. I just really don't like it here. I'm really hoping.

  2. It's great that you encountered someone who once knew/worked with Nan, and that person gave you some hope. A welcome encounter, for sure.

    1. The senior center always held me in high esteem. They actually helped me get a job at the library. I should see if Harry is still alive. He was awesome. When he came to nan's funeral, he wasn't looking good: his prostate cancer had returned. His wife was also the sweetest woman. You know, I get along better with older people.
