I don’t know if anybody else has made this a thing. I also don’t know if anybody else will do this with me. If not, it’s completely fine. It’s something I want to do every week. I’m going to think of at least one thing I’m thankful for for the week. I’ll try to do up to four a week, but at least one. I think this will be very therapeutic. We shall see in time.
Note: There may be some things that get repeated now and then. My intention is to talk about things I’m thankful for that week. So some things may pop up a few times. I’m not attempting to be redundant or repetitive. Just trying to be genuine.
- I’m thankful for the chance to meet family. I met a long lost uncle. While things didn’t really end well, I was thankful for the opportunity to meet somebody that I’m related to and get a better sense of my family. Even if it’s just a small glimpse.
- I’m thankful for Valentine’s Day. I normally don’t really care for Valentine’s Day. I’m not against it. It’s just really nothing special to me. However, this was my first Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend. So it was very special to me. Due to being long distance, we had to Zoom. I’m just thankful I got to see her. Long distance can be hard, but it has moments of pure wonder.
- I’m thankful for Sarah’s anniversary. This may seem like a weird one. Let me explain. On February 13th, 2006, my beautiful sister passed away. She was fourteen years old. I still miss her very much. She was an important part of my life. Her death really destroyed me. I’m just thankful that I am able to remember her without getting a depression so bad that I can’t even get out of bed. I’m thankful that I can move on even if it’s hard. I’m thankful that I had the opportunity in my life to know such a beautiful person.
- I’m thankful for books! Book Outlet did a whole huge sale earlier this month. I finally got all of the books that I had ordered. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to grab books that I’ve wanted to read for a long time for a great price. I also had the opportunity to discover new to me books and authors. It’s always great to have more access to books.
In loving memory of Sarah Elizabeth Crider.
