Today, I am thankful for friends who can bring a smile to a dreary day.
I am thankful I still have a job even though I now have to do it in a half empty office.
I am thankful today, most of all, for having married my best friend 18 years ago. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my love, and my best friend!
“I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday”
There’s a meme going on in Facebook where you update your status everyday, from now until Thanksgiving with one thing that you are thankful for. I’ll try to do that here too although I’m not going to promise posting everyday. My nablopomo days are over so I won’t make any promises I can’t keep.
Today I was thankful that I have a job. That is especially relevant since yesterday was the second round of lay offs at my job and I just lost some very good friends. My department was stripped down to half and I am one of the lucky who avoided being cut.
Although, the more I think about it, I don’t know that lucky is the right word for my situation right now. I may end up doing double and triple duties in the coming months, but today, I am thankful that I still have a job.
I will miss some awesome ladies, colleagues who have been like family these past eight years since I started working here. I will miss them. A LOT!
