Attitude of Gratitude!
Friday, May 10, 2013
Thank you, SP family, for your supportive comments on my short blog yesterday. I felt your hugs, love and concern and you really do help!
Having dampened the gloom and doom spirit for now, I can also say thank you to those of you who prayed and sent good wishes for my youngest sister. She's a teacher in Colorado, last hired in her school and the first laid off. Her job ends on her birthday, June 3. She IMed me a few minutes ago to share the news that she has received an informal job offer at another school, a smidge farther from home than her current one, for about the same amount of money (a little less). She won't have to move, she won't have to go to court to resolve a custody issue and her 3 children can stay in their school next year.
On top of my blue depression, I came home after work last night afraid that my boss was going to chew me out today and it turns out that I had done the right thing! Someone else came unglued via email and how I handled the situation was right. Validation is rare and so appreciated!
I have not been eating in response to this latest bout of depression and my knee is starting to feel better. I walked for a very few minutes today. The knee felt great, my balance seemed right and the breeze was cool. It was lovely!
I know I need to be vigilant about this depression and not slip into the depths. Thank you, my SP family! You have no idea what good you did!
