remember the blink of an eye

  1. pandora
  2. when my grandfather told my mom he’d pay for my first laptop
  3. when my dad finally said he’d give up visitation
  4. when my grandfather told my mom that i should go overseas on a school sponsored trip
  5. my grandfather. i don’t talk about him much, but i think without him i’d be a drastically different person. he isn’t in the thankful list from last week.
  6. linda suggesting that we write 5 minutes a day on a topic that changes weekly.
  7. that frodo had sam.
  8. having my own buddies so that i can throw my own rings into mt doom
  9. that my mom thought i should get that spinning wheel
  10. that my husband thought i should get that spinning wheel
  11. that i was online in the library that day in 1999 instead of only doing my school work
  12. that my mom typed my papers from my scribbled yellow notepads for years
  13. my ability to make analogies. i derive so much pleasure from this very human ability.
  14. that our realtor showed us a house that ignored one of the first things we told her we wanted
  15. that the buyers for the house we wanted backed out
  16. that i went to a small catholic school for kindergarten and first grade before moving across town and switching schools
  17. that bear used to make me wait for him for hours
  18. that bear no longer makes me wait for him and if an emergency happens, i still only wait about 30 minutes
  19. that linda is talented at long distance relationships and willing to be my bff
  20. gmail archives
  21. my sony ereader
  22. fan fiction. i might not read it much anymore, but it changed my perspective on a few things and its how i met AJ.
  23. for the japanese maple that already exists on our property
  24. for the massive hydrangea and all the lacecap hydrangeas (i love love love hydrangeas)
  25. that typing in all lowercase somehow assuages the tiredness i’ve been feeling

(Gilligan, the title is from “Upwards Over the Mountain” by Iron & Wine. I used it because it seems to me that part of being thankful is remembering “the blink of an eye”. Maybe it’s just me.)
