It’s begun. Holiday Season 2019 is upon us. Already. Where did the time go!? A few days...
Where did the time go!?
A few days ago, I saw a little meme that said, ‘Do you want to know how long this year has been? The Tide Pod insanity was in January!’
While that’s funny, it makes me think how full this year has been. It’s had its ups and downs, sure. As you saw from my last post, I had to say ‘see you later, my love!’ a couple of weeks ago to my wonderful little companion of eight years.
Generally, I try not to do these ‘let’s look back over the year!’ types of things until about mid-December. But, in my religion, we have a new Liturgical Year starting up today. So, to me, this is the ‘end of the year.’
So, let’s see what 2019 has happened thus far (without cheating and delving into my memory jar.. which I need to kind of add more to it for the last few weeks… been pretty lax…):
- There have been many scrapes, but God is good. He has gotten me through another year (mostly) unscathed. When I went to Mass Thursday morning, I told Him thank You for everything I’ve faced this year.
- I was formally Adopted into a stable Family. One that isn’t toxic and abusive, but one that legitimately loves me and doesn’t resent me. I am so, so grateful for that. I’ve always wanted a home, and now I have one.
… actually… let’s try something else. Thanksgiving is what it is, how we go around and discuss what we’re thankful for… I want to give you my ‘I’m Thankful For...’ list.
Here you go:
There's the usual stuff - home, life, freedom, etc etc. But... I'm gonna go deeper than that. Here you are:
- Friendships. I don't have a lot of people I call 'friend.' Those few souls I do, though, I am so, SO grateful for them. This has been one helluva year. Not nearly as awful as 2018 abused the hell out of me, but this year has been certainly interesting.
