Yup, Merry Poppins didn’t give me that spoonful of sugar this time, although the perspective didn’t leave a bad aftertaste. Rather, it left me feeling very thankful for where I’m at in life. Since moving back to Kamloops I have had the pleasure of meeting up with quite a few of my high school peers. It seems we’re all destined to come back even though we all were so keen on moving away back then! Last August when I was bumping into everyone, it was interesting to exchange stories about where we were at in life. But since then, I haven’t seen so many “old faces” until just this past weekend. I randomly met up with an old acquaintance and like before, we exchanged hello’s and how we were doing at present. I found myself surprised at what I had to say; you see, I hadn’t really thought about all the blessings I’ve been given in awhile. (This may be because of the sleep-deprived nights I’ve been having lately!!) I really had nothing but positive things to say. I said positive. That doesn’t mean life has been easy or rosy. As a matter of fact, it’s been downright challenging and difficult at times. Yet I feel joyful.
I guess this is a thankful post and it’s a little late as Thanksgiving was last weekend, but I felt I had to share. The picture below is of my Cupcake carousel up at Sweet Spot Cupcakes. I am also thankful that my work can be shown in such a great venue 🙂
