Yesterday, I was thankful for...

1. An uneventful trip to the city and back.
2. The new apartment being as pretty as I remembered.
3. Finding a tenant (my co-worker!) to rent the house.
4. The furniture turning out better than expected.
5. Figuring out how to work the new litter box. LOL.

Today, I'm thankful for the chance to have been involved in the life of someone very special.
RIP, Sarah. 9/30/90 - 3/29/13.

Yesterday was the anniversary of my father's passing. I was there, and it was the only time I've ever been with someone when they died.

I am so very grateful for all the things about him that people say they see in me. They are gifts from him, and maybe I have given some of them to my children, too.

Today, I was thankful for...

1. Being at home when the water heater developed a faucet-like leak. My apartment was ankle-deep in water in less than 30 minutes.
2. The professionalism of the apartment complex staff and the carpet and restoration company.
3. The excitement of new ideas!
4. An inkling of where my 'good enough' job might be (while my other ideas are 'percolating').
5. The fact that the water didn't make it into the bedroom or the living room. I don't think I could have kept my cool if that had happened.

:D
