• It so cold out that I could see my breath. Sometimes, I pretend to be a steam train engine, Chugga Chugga cho cho, here I go! But for now, I am a fire-breathing dragon who is surveying the vastness of my kingdom. Haha!
• It's Thanksgiving and Hanukkah at the same time. This is a rare occurrence, once in a century or so.
Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday. My employer is Jewish that's why I know these stuffs.
• This oatmeal sure is a nice food to have in this chilly morning.
• I thank the family I saw from my kitchen window while I was washing dishes. They seem to be enjoying their Thanksgiving dinner. The sight reminds me of my "for good" goal to be with my family. No amount of money can cure my homesickeness.
• Fish and rice for dinner. Nothing beats anything fried! Yum!
• I thank God for knowing the difference between wants and needs. I don't need to wake up early tomorrow for Black Friday shopping.
• Chapstick for my dry lips and travel size lotion to prevent cracked hands-- must haves for cold weather. I forget things a lot but, surprisingly, I never fail to stick these two gems in my backpack. These are little comforts in life I am surely thankful for.
• I thank God for this happy feeling I am enjoying at the moment despite me being alone this Thanksgiving.
• I constantly write my thoughts and what I learn on a notebook. Thank God for giving me a "forever-a-learner" attitude.
• Thank God for people around me, both good and bad. Good people worth emulating and bad people is sort of like a reminder not to be like them.
Happy Thanksgiving, America.
