Thankful Thursday: 2/25/21

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.

  1. I am thankful for the training that my new job provides. I just started the job last week. They are very straight forward and thorough. They also ease you into the calling process instead of throwing you to the wolves so to speak. I am so thankful that they are giving me a chance.
  2. I am thankful for routine. I’m thankful for the opportunity to make my own routine. I am thankful that I am able to tweak it as I need to. I’m thankful that even when things feel overwhelming for me that I will bounce back and everything will be okay again.
  3. I’m thankful for second chances. It’s nice to know that if I mess up that I will be able to fix it. I will be able to move forward and do the right thing from then on. This is both moral and not. On the same token, I’m thankful for being able to learn from my mistakes.
  4. I’m thankful for having followers. I’ve been doing tis blog thing for a very long time. I never really thought I would make it big. I just wanted to share in what I love the best and connect with people who I have things in common with. I have 258 followers of my blog. I’m beyond thankful! I have almost 500 followers on TikTok. That really shocks me. I just can’t believe it. It grows every day too. I’ve discovered BookTok. I fully recommend it if you are on there. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Anywhere. My social media links are to the side.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  1. I’m thankful for unexpected money. Things were starting to get a bit uncomfortable. Luckily, something came in that changed everything for us. I am so thankful and blessed. I feel like my prayers were answered just when I needed them.
  2. I am thankful for being able to take care of my loved ones. Once I was able to pay my bills, I was able to buy gifts for the birthdays that happen this month. I was worried about not being able to do so. It was a big stress on me. I was even able to get a special Valentine’s Day gift or my girlfriend.
  3. I’m thankful that I was able to pay bills. During hard times, it’s hard to be able to even pay for the small things. It’s even hard to feed yourself. It’s during those times that being able to pay for anything seems amazing and wonderful. It feels like a huge achievement. One I’m grateful for.
  4. I’m thankful that I was able to get my uncle a new phone. My uncle has had problems with his phone for a few months now. It recently killed over fully. I’ve been wanting to help him for a long time. I just haven’t had the ability to. Until recently. My dead line was finally paid off and I was able to upgrade the phone on it and have him added to my plan. It made me feel good. Especially seeing how happy it made him made me so happy.

  1. I’m thankful for being able to finally get back into my routine of things. I’m a tad late in my schedules most days, but I get it all done in time. That’s what matters.
  2. I’m thankful for cooking. I really love experimenting with cooking. One day, I’d love to have a big kitchen where I can experiment on many different dishes. It’s one of my passions.
  3. I’m thankful for book mail. This seems really shallow, but it’s true. I love getting wonderful books in the mail. I love the thrill of having a brand new book that I will eventually open and read. Books are so beautiful.
  4. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made in the book community. They make me feel special and wanted. I feel like I finally fit in somewhere. It’s been a long time since I ever felt like I fit in. It makes me very happy!

  1. I’m thankful that my group (The Introverted Readathoner) seems to be growing. It’s a group of us who love readathons. We all take turns hosting low key readathons now and then when we need a bit of a push. All are welcome.
  2. I’m thankful to have the time to get caught up on things I let go over the past few months. Including reading. While I am sad that I lost my job and that I won’t be able to start my new job until February 17th, I’m happy for the down time this gives me.
  3. I’m thankful to have time to spend with my family. We’ve had a lot of funny moments around here. It’s been very therapeutic.
  4. I’m thankful for my Goodreads group that meets several times a week. I know that because of them, I will at least allow myself to actually read a book at least an hour a day. With all I try to cram in my day, I usually listen to audio. Sometimes I miss just sitting and reading. This helps so much.

  1. I’m thankful for the ability to get a job so quickly after being let go from the previous one. At a job that I’ve been wanting to work at for a few years now.
  2. I’m thankful for the chance to be able to prove myself and get a clean slate. I haven’t been perfect. Especially these last few months. I’m just thankful I can turn it all around.
  3. I’m thankful I have people in my life that are here for me no matter what. They remind me how important having people around at your lowest times are.
  4. I’m thankful for my mother. She made me who I am today. She lifts me up and gives me chances to improve and better myself when many of my family have written me off.

  1. I’m thankful for the ability to speak my mind about any issue that impacts me or the world around me. Not everybody has the same privilege I do. There are people who are forced to keep silent or their very life will be jeopardized.
  2. I’m thankful to have a job. I haven’t been perfect at my job. There are days that I’m not exactly happy with it. Call center jobs can be a little draining at times. I am thankful that they have been so amazing and worked with me so much though.
  3. I’m thankful for books. No matter what happens in my life, I can always count on books. They give me the escape from reality I need.
  4. I’m thankful for my partner. My partner has been so amazing since we very first started talking. Even before then. My partner is good to everybody though. I’m blessed that my partner is in my life.
