I Am Thankful...
My brother was there...haven't seen him in a while and he most likely prefers it that way. (I'm a needy sister) My cousin who we recently re connected with after decades came and I took the old family photo albums to share with her...we laughed and cried and had a blast.
Friends of my sister came who were planning on going to a restaurant for Thanksgiving (gag me with a spoon) and all fit in nicely with our crazy bunch!
It was "Eat Drink and be Merry!"
Sometimes, more often than not I feel ridiculous complaining about the past few years. Yes they were tough, but are in the past and there is no way to change the past. You can only change the future.
My family has survived and in recent times have seem to flourish thanks to much help, love and hard work.
Never be afraid of working hard. Never be afraid of accepting help when you need it and never be timid about paying your good fortune FORWARD.
One of my high school friends and blog reader has suggested me for a job opportunity with her company. It's something totally different yet a job I feel I would have a lot to offer.
You never know until you try. If you never try you will never know.
I am almost fifty three years old and considering changing careers after almost 34 years, thanks to the confidence my friend has in me and my abilities as a hard and dedicated worker.
I'm already crazy...so "What the Hey?"
I'm nervous, not making any commitment but willing to try. As Forrest Gump said
"My Mama always said you've got to put the past behind you before you can move on."
Til next time...COTTON
