I was sleeping on Saturday and when I opened my lids, it's already Thursday! Already October! Okay, that's an exaggeration but time flies real fast! And funny because we sometimes race against time. And in the hope of keeping up with the frantic pace of everyday living, we sometimes forget. We forget the little yet significant things-or events that make us think, cry, smile, throw fits of laughter or make us realize how how great it is to be alive.
I forget, too.
But thanks God for dropping pieces of "packages" here and there. They help me slow down, they help make the hours and days not go by in a blur, with me not having the slightest memory - que horror! - of what-has-been.
These are things like the mistakes I made over the past week. Makes me feel human and imperfect. And I like that because it means I cannot rely on myself alone but with the Greater Being who reigns over the heavens and Earth.
Like a job offer. Not for me though, it's for BH. Gives us the chance to ponder on our options, to speak from the heart and share our thoughts on the possibilities this offer could bring.
Like the traffic. Yes, the traffic and on my way to work last Tuesday, it was unbelievable. I am grateful that I was able to drive through the traffic and I arrived safely to my destination. And I am thankful that we have a vehicle that could bring us from point A to B.
And then, I am thankful for the people I work with. My officemates. They have become my friends and they make my working life much easier. Also, they are very kind to bring me home when my shift ends at so late at night. And to think that my house is a long way drive from the office.
Then, there's the office boy who keeps the office, the toilet and the pantry clean and who buys us our food.
The guards who open the gate, who sometimes help me find a cab and who offer an umbrella when it's raining.
And today, I'm truly thankful to be alive and to be able to write this Thursday post.
Psalms 107:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
