Here goes. Hope this is how it is done.
Ten Things of Thankful
Sometimes good things come at the most unexpected of moments. While I watched a Ken Burns documentary on America’s role in the Second World War I was given the idea for a book I long to write. It’s a first step.
For thoughtful and conclusive series finales. Mad Men is over. It was a great great show.
For spinning strawberry rides with my nephew. Spin, spin, spin. Too small to ride the Ferris wheel just yet, but there’s always next year. He just needs to grow because he is so tiny still. I love Ferris wheels and hope to ride plenty with him, but not so sure I want him to grow up.
For soft serve vanilla ice cream and chocolate covered dipped cones.
For pizza with family and birthdays. Happy Birthday to my lovely sister. Glad I got to celebrate another one with her.
For mashed potatoes, more like potato soup. There might have been an issue draining off the water, but it’s a memory I made with my brother and that makes it invaluable.
For reading Lord of the Rings for the twentieth time. Took my brother and I a whole year to read Fellowship of the Ring because we see each other only so often.
For someone who would offer me a borrowed laptop when I was in desperate need – even though I stupidly spilled sticky liquid on mine and this person could have been, understandably, wary of giving me the use of their own.
For fishbowl-sized glasses of sangria after difficult but necessary experiences.
For open mic nights. It is giving self-expression to someone, even if only for a little while.
So there it is. That was my list of
for the week of May 17th, 2015.
I have my own tool for self-expression back. Time to go full speed ahead with the final week of May.
