Just a little update before I begin my latest thought: my resolutions are still, for the most part, sticking… I’ve had trouble keeping the same ones as before, but I’ve been improving ever so slightly on my consistency. Hopes are good!

I guess along the same lines comes my latest little blab; I have resolved to be as thankful as I can be (without overdoing it, of course). Today, I realized how lucky I am to have the friends that I do. Let me explain.

I have never been the best at being the most sensitve and considerate friend; very often, I say something sarcastic, do something selfish, or don’t spend enough time with my friends. Yet, despite all of this, I am still blessed with them. Yes, I am at fault for very human characteristics, but I have to believe that I can be better if I ever hope to change my ways. Aim high, Justin, aim high.

So I come back from Got Snow?, a residence outing to a retreat centre some 45 minutes west of Waterloo. It was a lot of fun, and I’m glad that I went. Not long after I arrive, I go to drop off the guitar I borrowed to Laura (henceforward known as Lowwa). I end up talking to Lowwa for quite some time, and I’ve really come to see that I have gotten to know her quite a bit better over the past month or so.

Now, she hasn’t had the easiest time recently, and I thought it would be good if I showed her that she had my constant and unwaivering support. Later tonight, I was talking to her and Kat, and I offered to pick up a pita for them when I went with some other residents. Kat promptly offered me money upon my return, but I very stubbornly declined. I thought that if, for some $5 or so, I could satisfy their hungers and maybe bring a smile to Lowwa’s face, it would be well worth it. To extend that a little further, it was a very small token of my gratitude for all of the love and support that they have given me.

Just now, after a talk with Shpineapple, I’ve realized that I’m also very lucky (and happy) to have her as a friend. I’ve been very stupid with her recently, and it’s very fortunate for me that she is very forgiving πŸ™‚ God bless her and all of you, my dear friends!

4:15am. Bed calls.

    I couldn’t agree with you more! Friends are the people who make life so worthwhile and so fulfilling… We are truly blessed to be in the company in which we are. I couldn’t bear to be alone in this world, and there have been so many people that have helped me along the way (and continue to do so). To even try and name them would be an injustice to those that I miss, so I’d rather not even start a list. I’m sure they know who they are. πŸ˜‰

    Another injustice, however, is this weather. Please have plowed sidewalks tomorrow morning πŸ™ Ta ta for now!
