And so I abruptly dropped off of my 30 days of me meme. I don't expect to pick it back up, I thought I would be ready to talk about those last categories, but I am not. The day after I last posted I had meetings about fires and floods in one of the areas that I supervise and went to bed with a call that one of our student staff had died.
Four months since I lost my grandpa...my only pa...and some of the crappiest work weeks I have ever had to endure. So, no more reflective meme...time to blink through the dark and pick out the flecks of light.
I am so happy to have added new friends to my life. Melanie, Alisa and Tracy make work fun and make me better. Melanie and her husband Rob have also added so much to my out of work life, that I will not ever be able to thank them enough.
I am happy to keep the friends that time has already given me. As geeky as it may come off, seeing you all post on facebook and livejournal keeps me in step with your lives and I am very thankful for that. I love that when I do get to see you or talk to you, it seems like we were just together moments ago.
And all jokes aside my family not only made me who I am today, but they make me better every minute. Who am I kidding, my family is not just the few proud flesh and blood relatives I have, but many of the friends I have already mentioned.
I also can not thank Adam enough for being the best friend I have ever had.
Lastly, I encourage you all to visit 1000 Awesome Things
I have been reading it for some time, but lately it has really moved the stepladder (to greatness) a little closer to me.
Thanks. Luck and Love to you all.
