Halloween Gratitude 2019

Halloween 2019
 It is the month of November. Halloween just passed. Next comes Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then the New Year 2020. The year is almost over. I haven't finished my goals this year yet. I still have time. But I should not procrastinate.

Anyway, just as important, I have many blessings to fall back on this fall. Here is my list of gratitude.

  1. A moment to enjoy my grandson's Scooby-Doo picture. Isn't he the cutest Scooby-Doo baby this year? All that I asked agrees with me!
  2. Just eight years ago, my son, now a father, still dressed for Halloween. You can't see it here but he was a wounded skateboarder. (He had left his costume at a friend's house an hour away. . . ) How can he have a kid already? He is only (still) a/my kid!
  3. Snowball was younger then. He is still cute now but he is missing a lot of teeth and his tongue always hangs on the left side. I love old pictures.
  4. My daughter dressed up for Halloween this year still. She is 19 and still going to college. I am happy about that.
  5. I work last Halloween. I am thankful nothing scary or gruesome happened at work that day.
  6. I am thankful for a good talk with my boss last week. It makes me nervous sometimes when bosses make an appointment with me "just to talk." 
  7. I am thankful for the reimbursement from work for my expenses obtaining a second nurse certification.
  8. I am thankful that so far I am not behind taking two college courses at the same time while working fulltime. I am still alive and not buried with tons of homework. I am keeping up.
  9. I am thankful for my health. I remember this every time I hear about another young woman diagnosed with breast cancer. I get sad then cheer up for MY HEALTH. 
  10. My presentation went well in nursing education day. Speaking in front of others makes me nervous but I did alright.
May you have a list of gratitude to think about. Have a good week!

Ten Things of Thankful

Comments

  1. #6! yeah, that and the surprise, 'Hey, you got a minute?' lol
    good for the success in school and, as we all know, public speaking is ranked number 1 as the scariest thing people might have to do (at least in terms of knowing about it ahead of time).
    Have a good week.

  2. A neighbor just passed away from cancer a few days ago. Health is such a gift.

    Being able to look through old photos brings back so many great memories.
    Scooby-Doo is adorable!

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
