Ok, so I missed Thursday again this week, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thankful this past week, I have… here check it:
Nov 7: Catch-Ups with old Friends – there are some friends who I don’t see all that often, but when I do it is like no time has passed, things just click back together. I am truly thankful for this because I know it isn’t always the way these things work, but I am so glad that with these guys it always seems to happen. So much has changed since we first meet during O-week at Uni, but the three of us remain solid… it’s good.
Nov 8: That God made berries and that we could pick them – But this is so much more than berry picking, although we picked so many and they were so very delicious, we also got to hang out with My brother and his girlfriend and enjoy the beautiful sunshine… just a winner combination.
Nov 9: Skills – This one might sound a little arrogant, but I am thankful that I have skills in a lot of different things and that I am currently in a job where people appreciated my skills and encourage me to use them. It’s good to feel supported and appreciated.
Nov 10: The gym – It’s a love hate relationship, but this week I have been really glad to be back in the gym, it’s good to exercise… I wish I felt like this more often.
Nov 11: Meeting wise people – During Alpha at church we have been put in a group with some pretty wise people, I don’t think I will ever get sick of learning about what God is doing through people, or challenged about how I can lift my game.
Nov 12: Friday Feels on a Thursday – Today was a great day at work, and there was a Friday feeling in the air, even though it was Thursday, although technically my work Friday… because I wasn’t actually working on Friday… but it wasn’t just me… work was just really fun today and for that I am thankful.
Nov 13: International Post – It was my bestie’s birthday yesterday and I popped a card in the post last week hoping that it would make it but not expecting that it would… and guess what, it did. Only a day late for her birthday, but even so I am pretty proud of myself and really thankful that it actually made it to London.
Nov 14: Camping – I really love it, much to the surprise of my friends and family. So a impromptu overnight camp organised by Davo to help me cross some things off my list is pretty flippin good. We crossed three things off the list… 61. Go Camping, 31. Stargaze while lying on the grass and because Davo planned the whole thing just for the list we also get to cross off no. 48. Go on a romantic getaway. But even without these things on the list, it was just really nice to be away even just for one night, see some wildlife including a random deer (who knew that was a thing in the Yarra Ranges), go for a walk and have some peachy keeny custard with our worrying about a thing.
Nov 15: Birthday Brunch – You know the thing I wrote about for Nov 7? Well its true for today as well. Today we celebrated another besties birthday with delicious breakfast and it was good, everything about it was good, except the serve that was pretty bad, but everything else was top notch. I am thankful for the people that are in my life, especially the ones like those I hung out with this week, who have known me for longer than I care to think about and still love me anyway. Friends who just accept me for me… they are good ones.
So far November is proving to be a winner.
