They call it being a slacker, I call it living. I’m thankful when I’ve got so many other wonderful things going on around me that I forget to stop by here. Not that I don’t think about or miss it, but life is treating me very well. I was officially hired on at Aetna yesterday and rekindled my friendship with Victoria over miscommunication. That was depressing me for a couple days straight. God is good and he knows we get caught up in our own fears and then assume. We fixed that. Her and I are one of the greatest teams you’d ever have the privilege of coming across through the wonders of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
So today I’d just like to be thankful for the little things that bring me comfort and happiness.
My sweet little fox, Shadow, that Patrick recently graced me with. I take him everywhere. I just love the way he makes me feel. I also have my morning Cup-A-Joe in one of my favorite mugs. It actually is “Sweater Weather” outside today. It made for an enjoyable morning walk. Crisp and breezy. I also have my planner that I received as a prize from an event Victoria hosted when I was in her small group last year. I love it, helps to keep me organized. I quite like organization.
I’ve had that puppy up since the first weekend of November. I needed an extra month of happiness this year. It’s been hard and this just makes me feel comforted and brings me joy. Eddie likes to play with his Gotham City and figures before and after school in my room. I decided the theme this year is, “Gotham City Christmas.” Patrick suggested getting jokers and other DC characters to put on the tree. I think that’s a splendid idea, I love my hero/villain loving men.
I’ve decorated the majority of my room and there’s nothing better right now. I am finding my passions again, my hobbies, the things that bring meaning to my life, and the will to do God’s calling all through him. I’m blessed beyond measures. It’s turning out to be a decent ending to a pretty craptastic year, if I’m to be honest.
I’m going to sprinkle you with scripture today since I missed these three days.
