To share the good news, and happy things that make us grateful.


Thank you, universe, for our being able to get into our own apartment. Thank you that, although things are tight, we have food to eat, clothing, and heating. Thank you for how well my sweet kids are adjusting to having their whole life turned upside-down, and suddenly only seeing their grandparents every couple of days.

Thank you for helping me find a belief in the innate goodness of mankind again, and for letting me see that I don't have to throw out faith, period, as I step away from the beliefs I was raised with. Thank you for showing me the possibility of a mature, adult relationship with deity.

Thank you, Universe for allowing my husband and myself to see the way to finding a start at financial relief and giving us the strength to swallow a little bit of self pride and do what was neccessary. It wasn't until I left the beliefs I was raised to believe, and found you that now my life is starting to make sense again. I know I am now on the path that I was meant to be on.

Thank you Universe, for helping me survive the past couple of days.

Particularly the bit about L calling in to his second job, and finding out that his friend could sub for him because friend was planning on working, but was not, in fact, on the schedule, so they just traded days. Very nice little bit of synchronicity...thank you.

Thank you Universe, for not letting me give up on the Vitamin D3 and for increasing the dose until it began to actually help with the depression.

Thank you for all the help we've found for my two special needs grandchildren, and please help us figure out what therapy will be most helpful for both, but especially for the oldest at this time.

Complaining works! I didn't get a package I'd ordered express from Amazon (I'm a Prime customer so I'm supposed to get overnight shipping) and today it's officially 5 business days late. I asked Amazon where my package is, even though I don't really think it's their fault, it's DHL's fault. But I thought they could track it easier since they sent it. Still, they apologized and gave me 5 Euro credit (since they can't refund my shipping, since it's free).
I hope my package gets here soon and I think DHL has taken too long despite the holidays and weather (I was told it could be 1-2 days late at most) but I think it was really good customer service for Amazon to do that for me.

THANK YOU GREAT SPIRIT

For that personal email from a WWOOF lady who wants me to help her with her garden and set her up with chickens, and thanks for getting it to me on Christmas. Always nice to have options, and I really enjoyed that town, despite the crazy lady.

Thank you for my friends in KS who have made it clear that I need to move back. Which I will.

For the excitement of learning something new and having a goal to obtain, thank you VERY much. This is exactly what I needed, so thanks for helping me wake up, especially since it came through an old friend, who I am also grateful for having seen recently.

I love you, Father Bear. I love you, Great Spirit.

It's been a tough week at the office and I was tempted to avail myself of the rant thread, but I'd rather focus on the positive. Today I'm grateful that the hubby and I are both employed with good benefits. I'm thankful for the kind and courteous customers who appreciate my services. I'm thankful that I married such a good guy who is always looking for ways to make our future together as comfortable and secure as possible.

But most of all...I'm thankful for weekends and NyQuil when I've been battling a bad cold at work all week. :)

Thank you, Universe......for um.....McDonald's fast food. lol.

Okay, I'll list a real one. Thank you for such a great Mom as not many moms are willing to pay $200 for just two pairs of shoes because their daughter's feet are two different sizes due to surgeries and swelling. And thanks for letting me be able to find shoes that even fit and I can walk in without pain. Thank you, Universe!

Thank you, universe, for the strength to keep striving for personal progress and growth. Also, thank you for the people you have placed in my life that look out for and care about me.

Thank you Universe for giving us nice weather on the weekend for a change. I was able to hit a couple of thrift shops and get some "new" clothes for my granddaughter and a "new" walking cane for me - with a lovely brand new no-slip tip on it. The tip on my old bent cane was very slippery on wet floors. Sure enough, just a couple of days later we got an ice storm and I wasn't nearly as nervous getting outdoors with the new cane. Hope you enjoyed the candles and the little prayer I said.

Feeling very thankful that the observances of the oil festival, Ashuru Shamnu, have gone well. It's a holiday I've struggled to find meaning in, but this year I changed some things up and it was wonderful. I dedicated the entire lunar month to doing a "deep clean" of the house and partnered that with the ritual house blessing. So hooray for successes and progress in building a sustainable religious practice!

Thank you, Universe, for finding me at the mall the week they just happen to be giving away a Shiny Entei at GameStop.

I'm so stoked. I got a job! It's an unpaid work experience job, but I was more concerned about experience over money anyway. Unemployment is really high in Berlin and if I didn't find this I'd likely be looking for months longer! I'm really stoked about it too because it's exactly the kind of company I could see myself working with and they were really cool in my interview, and it has potential to turn into a paid job if I can do really well.

So thanks universe!

Thank you, Universe,

That I'm getting a grip on the difficult parts of my life right now.

That I feel connected to the Divine, even if I'm not always sure what to do next.

That the in-law's are making my declaration of un-Mormoning such a non-issue to my face, even if it hurts them.

That I'm finally making friends.

That with all the cold, windy weather we've been having, I had a beautiful afternoon yesterday to go pick dandelions for syrup.

I will have a whole lot less free time, because it's a full time (thankfully paid) internship and I want to keep up everything I'm currently doing (writing, music, get my garters online, training for cycling), but I really wanted to work there and I think it will be time really well filled!

I'm thankful for my happiness at this given moment, so happy I'm gonna list why (sorry if you get bored) :

- Passed my Spanish NVQ
- Passed my Physics coursework
- Got a job being a chef in a restaurant
- I've been cleared of all illnesses etc
- I have the best friends in the world
- Reached 150 crystals
- And I'm just happy in general, no medicinal assistance :D

More to be thankful for..I just got my yearly statement for 2010 for my condo, and last year I was over 600 Euro over what I'd paid in maintenance/utility fees. This year, I'm over 200 Euros UNDER so I get that much back...I was really nervous about it because the winter of 2010 was sooooo long and cold (gas heating is part of the fee).

Life is still going really well right now....I got an offer to stay at my job as a 'working student', which due to the bureaucracy of Germany will be a new contract but it's essentially the same job, and I'll be working half the hours and switching to hourly pay (which means I'll actually earn a bit more money). It'll be nice to work part time to mix up my week a bit more, but I really like working there and I've settled into working at a desk a lot better than at first (well, most of the time..) by learning to stay super active the rest of my time. I'm going back to university soon, and it's my last year and I'm excited about starting. I just got an email saying that my study materials have been shipped, and that's REALLY soon! They switched to online registration this year and I only registered a week ago, so that sure sped things up...before it was taking 3-4 weeks.
My dad hurt himself and had to have surgery on Saturday, but I just talked to him and he said the doctor called it a 'best case scenario' and everything is fine and he's not in a lot of pain. So that's good news!
Kitty continues to recover and is steadily gaining weight. He eats like a pig and I let him. His mood is much happier.
Things are going really well financially. After a couple of years of instability I'm finally doing alright.
My social life is so crazy...sometimes it's hard to keep up with, but more in a 'I'm too popular' kind of way. Which, even though it's crazy, definitely isn't a bad thing! If I'm home alone, it's because I chose to be and I scheduled that in. I'm still finding a balance with that (me time is important to me), and I'm trying to put my closest friends first and I admit that I've had to face up to the fact that I just don't have room in my life to make new friends other than a couple of new people from work. I'm not complaining about this of course...it is what it is and it's actually a sign that I have a lot of good stuff going on right now!

Sorry about the continual gushing, and the fact that this is the braggiest post ever (I had the last post in this thread as well)...it's just that, though I have my stressy times, things are going so well. So well I'm secretly afraid that something bad might happen. I'm very, very thankful. Thanksgiving is coming up, and I feel I have a lot to celebrate this year for a holiday that celebrates being thankful for things!

I am not gonna say I 'like' these kicks in the ass, but I sure did need them. I feel alive again. Thank you to all my friends who have been so good to me during my time in the gutter -- I'm not completely out, but I'm climbing.
