Thankful Thursday 6/8/2017

It's Thursday already!? Where has this week gone?! Actually, where has this year gone? It's crazy that it's already June and half of the year has gone by.

I'm thankful for the calmness of the week. Since replying to the invite, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulder. I feel positive about it, especially since one of the fees I paid is for the right to permanent residency. I hope that means I pretty much have it. I've been praying and I am thankful for those of you who have prayed/kept your fingers crossed for me. I appreciate it!

I'm also thankful for my friends and co-workers. My one library co-worker has really inspired me to start an autobiography project. For me, it'll be life long. I'm going to start it this weekend. I reached out to Liz the other night for some pictures from 2008. The two relationships I had didn't end well and for the longest time, they made me angry/upset/sad. They still do, but I want to write about them for my autobiography. I deleted all the pictures with the first one, but Liz still had the one from Halloween with all of us together:

And Liz and I:

Here is the one I found with the second ex. I'm surprised I had it saved, but it was on a Walmart photo album from 2009.

While these people still upset me, they did teach me some important lessons, especially in regards to what I want in life. I want to write about all of that. Also, while these relationships were mostly sour grapes, there were a few fun moments. I'm thankful Liz sent me some photos and I'm thankful that these relationships didn't eternally wreck my friendship with her. We stopped talking for three years but reconnected four years ago. I'm thankful for that.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I am thankful for autonomy, both for you (in that you are moving to Canada sooner or later) and me (in that I am going to the WCPL later, perhaps to also select some interesting Japanese or Chinese books as well from their foreign language collection (as I can't read Arabic or Hindi as well as I'd like to pretend yet) today). I don't know where the foreign language collection is at the Exton branch, so it's easier just to head where I know.

    Good bye!
