Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. There’s so so much that I am immensely grateful for. Ok so
rewind; I was kind of down this morning because I have to make a decision and I’m really
skeptic and afraid of either of the outcomes. So here I am at a crossroads standing still
worrying, not making a choice. And while on my little morning stroll to class this AM I saw a
post on Insta from my main girl Julianne Hough…..
This entire time I had been viewing my
situation as a burden, something that I was afraid would swallow me whole. In no place in my
mind had I seen this as a blessing to be thankful for. Immediately I was overcome with a sense
of gratitude and happiness for what I had and what I had spread out before me. And so, with a
sense of motivation to start my day and a spring in my step I started listing off the things I am
thankful for. I’m thankful for the sunshine on my face and the fact that it isn’t snowing anymore.
I’m thankful I was able to get up early enough to finish the research paper I had put off… I’m
thankful for the sleepy puppy sweater that I’m currently wearing and extremely obsessed with.
I’m so happy and grateful that I can finally see grass and pavement, and that I’m not slipping on
sheet ice anymore. I’m thankful I was able to wear my worn combat boots even with the broken
zipper. I’m grateful that I could stop and catch up with a friend who I hadn’t seen in awhile. I’m
thankful for the cool breeze that ruffled my collar and kept me refreshed. I’m extremely grateful
for the random phone call from a stranger who made my day without knowing it. I’m thankful
for all the beautiful souls that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting up here in the Burg. I’m grateful
that this little patch of Idaho soil is finally starting to feel a little like home. I’m eternally grateful
for all of the happy memories I’ve made that I can look fondly upon. How grateful am I to have
met someone that I could connect with even for such a short time. I don’t know if this
sentimentality is coming out of me because of the warm weather or the yummy Greek yogurt I
had for breakfast, but either way it’s been a really SUPERB Friday.
