I've been drained of all my energy lately (I'm attributing it to this stupid depression because really, I don't have any other reason to be so tired all the time) so I totally forgot to post my thankful thing yesterday.
And, of course, it being Veteran's Day, I am thankful for our veterans. I have a family member or two in active service and more than my share of friends who are now or have been at one time in a branch of our military. From Iraq to Afghanistan, the people I've known have been there, on the front lines, risking their lives and safety. They've done something I don't know that I could do myself. These people are amazing and wonderful. They are truly heroic and brave. And I love them! So, veterans get a big "thank you" from me and to know I am thankful for them.
Um... I don't think I have a veterans-y pic, so....
Today I am thankful for old friends. Real ones. Not friends that have known me for the last 7 years and I've only *thought* I've known them. Yesterday I got together with some of my "old friends" to remember and reminisce about our friend that passed away. It was nice to reconnect and see familiar faces and just sit and enjoy each other's company for an afternoon (an afternoon that was just too short as it turned out). I've known one friend since elementary school and the other since junior high. And for a period of time (mostly while I was living in San Diego) we lost touch or didn't communicate as frequently... but, yesterday was a great time to catch up and spend time together. And hopefully, continue to do so more in the future. I left that day thankful that after all this time, they're still wonderful people and best of all, they're still there.
