Today I am thankful that it is Ashley’s last day of class. She still has internships over the summer, but she won’t have to deal with an instructor who actively creates a toxic atmosphere simply because she can’t live life without drama. Ashley deserves better than to have to deal with people like her, and I’m thankful that, after today, she won’t.
I am thankful that one year ago today, she said yes. And I am thankful that in six months, we’ll be married.(2)
I am thankful that the kittens are doing well. That their mum is being a good mum, though perhaps a bit overprotective(3) w/r/t the other cats. And that she’s included Ash and I as part of the family.
I am thankful for books and for the authors who write them. Right now, I am particularly thankful for John Green, who is able to remind me of what I felt like half my life ago.
And I am thankful for friends. For friends who stay. And for friends who come back.
How are you celebrating Thanksgiving in April?(4) What are you thankful for?
- Similar to Christmas in July. But Thanksgiving. In April. And with no stupid Black Friday to annoy the shit out of you.
- And in Walt Disney World!
- I keep telling her not to be a hover-mom. But: parents, right?
- What? It’s no less real than like Arbor Day or those Mexican and Canadian holidays that show up on your calendar sometimes.
