Those who have come to know me through my past blogs know that I am *NOT* a fan of holidays (and would just as soon not rehash my reasons now, since I don't want that to get in the way of my purpose for the day's blog)............this year I can acknowledge gratitude for certain things (small and medium-size in terms of significance).........this has been a *HUGE* struggle for me so this is a very, *very* "big deal* here.........
Bad patches in life often bring out the worst in folks - yours truly included, sad to say...........so at this point even small things are slowly but surely being acknowledged.........from the awesome sendoff from my former gig, to the small NSVs that have occurred recently (specifically, a nice-looking, "S"-sized pair of slacks FITTING, and the ability to climb *two* fights of stairs with relative ease)!
And, of course, the fact th at, while cold, I am not dealing with *4 feet of snow*! YIKES! (I hope everyone impacted by that event is taking care and staying safe!)
I'm not gonna lie to you and say that this season will be joyful - there are, indeed, still pressing concerns that will likely weigh me down a bit - but there *has been progress made*, and for that I am, indeed, truly thankful!
Enjoy your "hump day", Sparkies!
