A birthday is a good time to reflect on all that’s happened since the last one and a chance to let go of whatever might need letting go.
I am still doing this
Ten Things of Thankful #TToT
exercise, but I am feeling a distance from what used to be something so joyful for me.
I am thankful
has been so helpful to make up for the lack of accessibility with InLinz.
I am thankful
is so skilled in his descriptions of his photos.
I love reading and sharing these TToT posts, but with this InLinz problem, I am left to consider if it’s time to move on…
But no because this is my weekly gratitude journal. It’s where I keep track of things that particular week and I like to include a photo of something that took place, a favourite quote I came across, a link to an article of interest, and a song I may have discovered and want to keep a record of.
I am thankful for the bloggers who did it first, when I happened across them in 2015 and that I am still here, four years later.
I am thankful for my brother, on his birthday weekend, and for the final few days of March.
Without that, we never would have gotten the idea to do a show, based on the
Canadian Federation of the Blind
and a place to educate and to be visible.
I am thankful for our family weekend in Niagara Falls and for all the whacky stuff that transpired at that favourite childhood hotel of ours.
I am thankful I participated in my first group exercise class and that I was able to keep up and face my fear of looking ridiculous in front of other people.
I am thankful my father likes to walk and that we can have this new thing together, walking together, as I prepare and train myself for a walk along the Thames.
I am thankful my first paediatric kidney specialist from 96 saw me on the news and reached out via a good, old fashioned letter in the mail. A return to a simpler time.
Or was it just as complicated?
