imageThank you cards for some special people taking me out for yet another birthday celebration!

(For 02/20/15)

I am grateful for the internal ecards at work, to let co-workers know just how cool they are and how much I appreciate them!

20140506-130931.jpgThank you for the wonderful day you have given to me, God! Thank you for each gift, blessing, and miracle today.

Thank you for the steamed pork in egg custard I had for breakfast. Thank you for leading me to the recipe.

Thank you for helping me find that marinated flank steak at the supermarket the other day. I cooked it last night so I could take some to work today. It was very delicious, and oh so tender! A great match to the steamed broccoli and the brown rice mixed with wild rice.

Thank you for flaming hot Cheetos! They take the itchy, scratchy throat away from allergies. I’m glad they come in little bags, or I’d be in trouble! 😉

Thank you for a chance to sit outside and be warmed by the sun.

I saw some of your beautiful creatures, while I was sitting in front of the fountain, during lunch. A dragonfly, with shimmering, luminous blue wings, circled twice. I managed to take a picture each of your squirrel and your crow drinking from the fountain. I wish I was able to take a picture of your tiny hummingbird, in front of the water of the fountain, as it took a drink. What a brave, tiny bird! Thank you for reminding me that if we have courage, we can do many things, even face a raging waterfall!

Thank you for the beautiful, yellow butterfly with black dots and tips! It allowed me to slow down and appreciate your beautiful creation in action.

Thank you for a flash of wings of a bird in the garage to remind me to slow down as I made my way out of the parking garage.

Thank you for another wonderful session with my Acupuncturist today. I know you brought us together so that I can fully heal.

Thank you for a chance for me to meet up with one of my closest friends for dinner. It was at a Japanese restaurant. You know how I love sushi!

Thank you for all the love and kindness I received this day, and I hope I was able to also give in kind.

I love you, God! Thank you for loving me back!

Thank you in advance for an even amazing day tomorrow!

Something unexpected came in through snail mail! A “thank you” card!

It came from Uncle M‘s brother’s wife, who came to care for her husband, who was hospitalized here in the U. S. after visiting Uncle M.

Besides a lovely message of “thanks,” she also wrote down how we met.

A few weeks ago, I had asked my cousin if they needed anything before I visited the hospital. She asked me to purchase lunch for an Auntie L who had stayed overnight and she gave me a different hospital room. I had thought Uncle M was moved to another room.

I brought a bagful of food and water to the new room, and met Auntie L. That was when I found out that Uncle M‘s brother was hospitalized again–this time at the same hospital as Uncle M. She diverted me to Auntie J, who was with Uncle M in his room, and eventually, I sat with both Auntie J and Auntie L in the cafeteria, while they entertained me with some stories about their husbands.

It is always wonderful to meet new family members… They are family, even if not blood. To me, we are all connected.
