It is really remarkable how one's life can change from one month to the next. From one season to the other. Or ... in just in one night.
Wake up call.
I always complain how shitty life has treated me. How shitty people have treated me.
Yet I fail to see and acknowledge how fucking lucky I am at the same time. I can't believe how self absorbed one can be when one suffers.
So with the opportunity today it is Halloween, and since Halloween is my Thanksgiving my Christmas, my Easter and my Hanukkah, I will bake a cake and dedicate it to everything I am thankful for.
And I'm thankful for the fact I am still healthy. I'm thankful nobody else around me has died. (a little bitter joke here) I'm thankful for the friends who stood by me through thick and thin. (particularly my Sarah who's been an angel) I'm thankful for old friends who showed up again and I am thankful for new friends who showed unexpected dedication.
I'm thankful for my new home. I'm thankful for all the help I get from the state. (indeed)
And last but definitely not least. I am so thankful for love. Something I really thought would never happen for me again. Whether it was luck, fate, destiny, karma, whatever it was who brought love in my way again. I am thankful! For I am completely, totally, utterly, absolutely ... madly in love!! :)
