So.. Let me start off this year’s Thanksgiving with my usual post about things/people I’m grateful for:
1. As always, first will always be family. It is because of them that I have all the support I need. My mum has made me into the polite, considerate woman that I am today. My dad has shown me what Asian love is. (For the people who don’t know what that is, it means showing your ‘love’ not by saying ‘I love yous’ or through hugs or any such Western signs of affection; my dad shows it by buying us stuff, his occasional jokes, and through his helpfulness. Love you daddy. eeee ) My sister… well, she taught me how to handle insults. Lol. Also, she’s excellent comic relief. xD Also… I guess Ivan deserves a mention too. Thanks for teaching me patience by constantly pushing mine, you annoying bugger. =p
2. Second will also always be my sister-from-another-mister, my best friend, Ann. Throughout my life, she has been the only one not to judge me at all. Regardless of what she hears about me, she firmly believes me based on what she knows to be true about me and does not succumb to backstabbing. That’s extremely rare in people nowadays, who are all about profiting/benefitting themselves, that they’d do anything (and I mean anything) to get there. Thank you babe, for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself, and for always having my back. *love*
3.My grandfather! I thank God every day that although he can no longer walk and is hard of hearing, he still remains the funny, amazing grandfather that I’ve always known, and in that sense, he’s never changed. ^^
4. My silly little gorgeous bugger. *love* Words can’t describe how much you mean to me. wheee
5. Life, in general. It hasn’t been easy, let me tell you that. I’ve had to make decisions that broke me, left things that I hadn’t wanted to, and hurt so much that I cried till my eyes were swollen beyond sight. But as they say, everything happens for a reason, and although I’m not religious, I know that whatever higher being up there isn’t blind to my tears. I haven’t figured out the reason behind all of the happenings, but I trust that I will.
