GIST - The Sunday Edition # 90

Things I am grateful for today

1. The sun came out after a gray, depressing morning. It was only out for about an hour before it started to get dark outside but still, the sunshine was a boost that I really needed today.

2. Elizabeth asked me if she could have some money to go get chicken soup from the grocery store because she really wanted some chicken soup. She comes back with a can of chicken soup and a miniature coconut pie for me because she remembered that I said (almost 2 weeks ago!) that I really wanted a slice of coconut pie. I brought it to work with me to have after I eat my supper.

3. Turtle earrings. They have just enough whimsy to make me smile and I've already had a couple of people make nice comments about them. I will probably give them back to Elizabeth (they were her earrings and I gave her a pair of mine for them but I'll probably still give them back to her after tonight.)

4. The influx of children with the pilgrimage is over. They all went home today. They were very well behaved this year but as with any large group of children/teenagers, it gets loud when they are all together and moving about. The younger ones (about Beth's age) all amused me because they haven't yet reached the point where they are anything but unfailingly polite when asking for something. I'm sure they give their mamas some attitude when they are at home but here, they were on their very best behavior. 

5. Thanksgiving is coming up really soon. I still have to get all the necessary things to make dinner that night but I am so looking forward to it. I'm off the day before and after Thanksgiving and am working a 6 hour shift Thanksgiving day. I can hardly wait for it.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
