Someone said that the best chances in life are free, but he was mistaken.
Chances in life do not come at the snap of a finger, so we appreciate them. And this is what I intend to do today. They make up this list of gratitude.
First of all, I am thankful for the long-awaited opportunity to move to a new home. Our present abode served us well for the past 15 years, and we will ensure that she is in good hands. That said, it is time to move on.
I am glad to interact with patient clients who do not mind when I fail to meet deadlines. I am fortunate to have encountered those who understand that producing a good piece of work takes time.
This week also gave me the chance to get rid of clutter. In preparation for my move to a new home, I threw away all the clothes no longer use. I purchased a new microfiber cloth, a trivial detail, but it has boosted my cleaning efficiency.
[I am glad for food because it became the perfect excuse to have a barbecue this week. We had chicken wings we did not know how to deal with, so we decided to grill them. The day became a family bonding session. I got to understand my brother-and-sister-in-law better.
I got the chance to visit the temple where my Husband usually worships. This situation is hard at times because we subscribe to different religions; I am Catholic and he, Taoist. I had more familiarity with Taoist customs this weekend.
May the week ahead have lots of chance and joy in store.

When you bring its shimmers to mind.
