365 Days of Gratitude

Today, Tuesday, August 22, 2017, I am grateful for two things today, LOL First, I am retaking a class at SLU that I flunked this past Spring Term. Because of my mental illness issues, my concentration has been almost nonexistent. As we went through the course, I got more and more overwhelmed but I thought I could manage it myself. Well, I couldn't and I got an "F". If I had withdrawn from the class, which I could have, it would have been the third class I have withdrawn from since I began my classes at SLU. That alone made me want to not give up and see the class through the end.

All throughout the summer, I tackled any and all problems and obstacles as they crossed my mind. Some, I didn't realize that they were problems until I realized that, hey wait, that's a problem I want to be rid of. Believe me when I say that I work very hard on processing and getting rid of any garbage that crosses my mind. I worked on that on a daily basis.

So, classes have started up for the Fall Semester and here I am retaking the class with the same professor I had last Spring Term.  I have read through the assignments and I had no difficulty at all. Nothing, none ZILCH!! I actually retained what I read and let me tell you what: I about somersaulted across my living room, LOL So, for me to be grateful for being able to read, comprehend and retain what I read like I used to when I was in school as a child and young adult is a HUGE accomplishment. HUGE as in HUMONGOUS!!!

Ok, the second thing I am grateful for is I bought a Vincent Price collection of four films he made that I found on eBay. I am slowly collecting all of the Vincent Price movies I can get my hands on, so I am delighted to be watching that today.

What are you grateful for today? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!!
