Share Your World – 2016 Week 47 (Grateful list)
On Thursday it will be Thanksgiving in the USA and I thought we could do a grateful list for this week. Most of these questions can be answered with just a couple of words, just put down the first thing that comes to mind. Yes, I know you writers will never use just one or two words to respond to any question.
What are you grateful for in regard to:
Your home life?
I’m Thankful and Grateful that I live in Brooklyn, NY, that I’m across the street from the subway and near several bus lines for ease of transportation plus I’m close to many excellent cultural institutions like the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, BAM and the Barclays Center. Plus I’m just a hop, skip and a jump from my old neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens, New York. All I have to do is catch the J train and in about 25 minutes I’m back in my old stomping grounds.
I’m Thankful and Grateful for my brother Stephen who is an Awesome Autism Guy, my Cat Sylvester and my room-mate who has been wonderful to me over the years I’ve lived here.
Your blogging community?
Gosh! So many people that I’m grateful and Thankful to know if only via our blogs. Way too many to name and I would feel bad to leave anyone out. Thanks to blogging I’ve taken trips to Africa, England, France, Switzerland, Indonesia, India, Ireland, etc… Even if I never get to any of these places in person much appreciation to my entire blogging community for sharing their countries, cultures and customs with me!!
Your city or immediate area in which you live?
What can I say?! I Love New York!! The Big Apple!! Born in the Bronx, raised in St. Albans & Jamaica, Queens, now living in BadAss Brooklyn!! The State and City of New York also take care of their citizens. We have a plethora of agencies, organizations, programs and services to help everyone and anyone who may be down on their luck or just need some assistance. New York is Liberal and Progressive with a massive safety which I’ve had to use in the past. Thank God for New York!!
The regional area in which you live?
New York City!! The Big Apple!! City of Dreams!! New York City is the Greatest City in the World!! Yes I Live in the ‘Hood’ or the Ghetto but people here work just as hard and have the same dreams, goals and aspirations as folks anywhere else in the USA!! Give me the city over the country or rural areas any day!! I’m a born and bred New York City Woman!!
The country where you live?
I Love America!! Even with all the problems we are currently having, this is my country, my home! I am a proud American and proud U.S. Army Veteran who served her country!!
At the risk of sounding conceited I’m glad I’m me a Loud, Proud, Wild, Wicked, Sexy, No Nonsense, Fun-Loving, Free-Spirited, Dancing, Outspoken African-American Woman!!
From Doo-Wop to Hip-Hop!! All R&B!! All Soul!! All the Time!! I’m Afrolicious Baby!!
Can you deal with it?!!
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My transfer to the annex building was approved and I will be starting my new position, well actually I’ll still be working as a security officer but with slightly different duties, at the end of this month. I will be working from 4:30 pm to 12:30 am Midnight. Will receive a pay raise plus more opportunity for overtime and additional security training.
Getting my Grind on!!!
Looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with my fabulous brother Stephen Palmer!!
I Love My Brother Stephen Vincent Palmer
