You know what that means-
Good Vibrations Gratitude Friday!
These are the five things I am thankful for this week.
- Boston Chinese and drinks with my cousins.
I was in Boston (well the suburbs really) last weekend for my grandmother’s funeral. (Blog post coming about that.) And despite the sad circumstances, it was still nice to spend some quality time with my cousins and the new honorary cousins I have picked up along the way.
And yes, Boston has it’s own version of Chinese food which is the best.
2. My last memory of my grandmother.
I am thankful that I got to spent my last two Thanksgiving with my aunt and my grandmother. I am thankful that one of my last memories of her was sitting on the couch, contently watching my daughter do her ballet moves. It was such a sweet memory and I will have it forever.
3. Super Bowl
No, I am not thankful for how it turned out but I am thankful for the company I had that evening. I still love my Patriots. #noapologies.
4. Good Neighbors.
I am thankful for my neighbor Bill who plows my driveway after every storm. Sure Bryon had a fancy snow blower that sits in the garage but I have been unable to figure out how to get it started. My father has gotten it started so the problem is solely the operator (That’s me!).
5. My #Threenager
My daughter is so full of spunk. All week she refused to wear a hat saying it would mess up her hair. She makes my heart so full. She was my reason for getting out of bed in the morning during those early months of widowhood and she is still bringing light into my life.
And 5 is not enough so you get a bonus this week!
Bonus: my friends.
My friends were there for me through the worst days of my life. We continue to be there for each other. And because they couldn’t drive three hours to be with me for my grandmother’s funeral, they still sent beautiful flowers. I am a very lucky girl to have my friends in my life and when I saw these flowers, it made me feel like my friends were by my side.
What are you grateful for this week?
