The weather is quiet grim outside with the snow falling down in fat flakes. It is April, and my city still is covered in snow. The sky is covered in grey gloominess. This is not my idea of a great night. On a good note it is 7:00 pm, and the sky is still light out. That makes me happy, because it means that the weather will become warmer soon.
I haven’t been writing in my gratitude journal for a while now. I have to change that, and I thought that I would write my first gratitude post of April should be here. Last week I had such a great time with my friend Stephanie. She came over with half a gluten free apple pie. We spend the day chatting and catching up on what is going on in each other’s life. I am blessed to have Stephanie in my life.
Another great moment for me was at a school assembly (I am an Educational Assistant I work with students who have special needs). I was sitting beside my student at the Faith Assembly. The superintendent of the OCSB was at our school giving service pins out the staff that has been there for 15 years. When my name was called my student had a big smile on my face. I walked up to receive my pin and a hand shake from the superintendent. I thank him, and walked back to my seat. As I am walking back to my spot I noticed my student was kneeling up high, and giving my the biggest smile that touched my soul. He was so proud of me. When I sat down he gave me a kiss on my sleeve and a hug. I can’t express how happy this made me.
There are many daily events that make me happy and very grateful for all that I have. The stories I shared are two of many. Everyday is a gift to be thankful for.
Have a wonderful weekend.
