What do you write when you’ve had a long day and you’re tired? I usually just write gibberish, but I want to write something of significance. I didn’t do any research or training today. That doesn’t leave much to write about. I can only write about prepping for Thanks Giving so much. So I thought that I would work on looking at things/people I am thankful for.
I am thankful for my husband. I have probably written about being thankful for him in an earlier post, but he is the light of my life. Because of him, I am who I am and have what I have. But to get to specifics, he stopped working on his projects to help me today. We put together a bed for the guestroom, and when we were done with that, he fixed my space heater. This week he finished my greenhouse, so today he was checking on the temperatures and trying out the vents. Unfortunately, sometimes I get exasperated or put out because he wants me to stop something and help him. I will have to remember this more often.
I am thankful for my job. I don’t get paid a lot, but it is enough. But, I get weeks like this one and last week where I only have to work one day each. This allows me to get a lot of my projects done. It also pays for a lot of my projects. I get summers off, so I can do my thing – mostly hiking and gardening. I really don’t have to put up with a lot of people, just my students who I get to know fairly quickly. And I enjoy teaching writing.
I’m thankful that my family is close enough that we can get together for gatherings such as Thanks Giving. We have a good time when we are together. We have a lot of laughs, and we get each other.
Life is good today.
