Black Rain (Irene)

Incorporate a Johnny Cash lyric (Tyler)
You can run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down.

Include a fireball (Christopher)

Black rain

How I've been waiting for you
Come and wash away this pain
You can run on for a long time
I'm still waiting on black rain

The fireball butterflies throw
Would be on a shorter chain
A better hit of what I'll miss
Waiting upon you, black rain

You can run on for a long time
Think you are blind to this fate
Eventually it will run you down
Sometimes sooner, mostly late

The black rain finds everyone

Day 111

Day 111 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I made it another 10 days. That's good. Today was 2 months since my childhood best friend left this world. It seems strange to not talk to her occasionally. You just assume you'll always have time, and then the time passes by so fast. I guess that's why I used to get mad at friends that would never take the time for me the way I did for them. In a way, I'm just one of those old fashioned people.

And I'm grateful for being old fashioned, even if it is a dying breed. I will keep believing and holding out for that one special, old fashioned friend.

That's my gratuity challenge for Thursday, October 20th, 2016.

Day 110

Day 110 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful I able to go home for once from work, and it was still light out. I would have loved to have gotten some extra sleep, but that's okay.

Day 109

Day 109 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I'm grateful for my last day at the Y. Sure there are some I will miss, and most I won't. I literally cried the other night upon seeing my paycheck from there. I was crying because I worked my butt off there for a few measly dollars. I might as well have been a volunteer there the way I was working.

I was elated because I'll no longer have to work with people that didn't want me around to begin with. I was elated because I wouldn't be around those who took their time to belittle me by making little snide comments to me. I was also elated because I won't have to deal with the members that didn't like me anyway. I'll miss my morning crew though. I know some that did appreciate my presence.

I'm mostly happy because I can now go home after work and sleep. I can take an actual day off. It's a much deserved one, trust me. And that's about it.

Earlier as I was emptying out the trash, I went to open up a clean bag and--I kid you not--my name tag knocked off and landed in the garbage bag. If that's not a sign I don't know what is!

As far as the other picture, I just like Supernatural memes.

Day 108

Day 108 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Monday, 10/17/16.

I'm grateful I found some old music to keep me company on my long journey to return my phone and exchange it for something completely different. 

Eh, I'll leave it at that as this is a gratuity challenge. :)

Day 107

Day 107 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for Disney puns. That's all I really got. It cheers me up.
