Welcome to my Friday feature! Created by the wonderful Meggy @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles, it’s a remedy against feeling down by creating a list of all the good things happening in my life this week. I became so inspired by her weekly posts and later also that by Nickimags @ Secret Library Book Blog, I felt it was time to begin sharing my own good feelings. It can be anything, from the smallest gesture from a stranger to a major event in your life that alters the direction of your day. Maybe something here will bring a smile to you in the moment.
This week, I’m going to focus on all the things I’m grateful for in the midst of all the worldwide worry and concern.
A month ago I hadn’t even heard of this feature and now I’m in love with it! My cousin’s wife organized a family call and it was fabulous!! We’re going to do one every Sunday for the foreseeable future. Hurray for Zoom!
I never thought I’d be quite so grateful for finding toilet paper but this hoarding has gotten ridiculous! Three weeks ago I was fine but in that time, my supply was getting low and each day, there was none to be found, even on Costco online. I finally got up early on Sunday and went to Costco at opening. Everything was civilized and the TP was at the entrance, one package per customer. I’m good for at least another two months.
My husband loves the Star Trek universe, I mean he watches the reruns of all of them daily. When the new Star Trek – Discovery series came to CBS All Access, I tried to get him to get the service so he could watch it, at least until he finished the season. He stubbornly refused, objecting to it being launched on a paid channel. Well, I found a deal for one month of free service and signed us up. Happy to report that he binge watched two seasons and I’m now best wife of the month🥰
My sister is asthmatic and opted to begin working from home a couple of weeks ago. She’s got a horrid manager that was making her life miserable. I said a prayer, asking for grace and five minutes later her governor issued a stay at home order. All is now good with her. Prayer works!
I experience most things vicariously and after too many hours watching news coverage of Covid-19, I began to feel feverish and achy. Hubby is a microbiologist with a PhD and his area of specialty is infectious diseases. He responded to my frantic worry with a smile, felt my head and told me to go watch Blue Bloods. He did, though, go wash his hands. In one minute I felt normal again. I’m so grateful for my good health and my sane, smart hubby🥰
I continue to pause and reflect upon the people and things in my life that truly matter. For that, I’m grateful.
