A Happy and Thankful Life

Welcome 2013

I had a quiet, reflectful, and productive 1st. I rearranged two rooms in my apartment and as I did so I realized that I was making this apartment mine. It’s not “our” apartment anymore but “mine”.  I know that for some, after their spouse died, they had to leave their home for a variety of reasons. I came close to that myself. But I was and still am thankful that the circumstances changed and there was one less thing for me to worry about.

I feel like I’m slowly getting to a point that I can make changes and be okay with it. I’m in control of these changes and the pacing. The changes have less control over me. I’m grateful for that.

That was yesterday. Today, I’m struggling with what to be thankful for as I discovered that during the last two days, someone drove their car into my parked car. They didn’t leave a note or call the apartment office. There is enough damage to my just under 3-year-old car that it has to be fixed which means that I get to pay my deductible and deal with my insurance company. I will never understand why some people can’t own up to their mistakes. In the scheme of things, there are worse scenarios than what I’m dealing with. I’m thankful that I wasn’t in the car when it was hit, that it is still driveable, and that I still have full coverage on my car.
