. . . received a paycheck
The first one in more than eight years. It has "withholding" taken out, so it's an official paycheck. Most gratifying to me, an event I will remember. The only thing that supersedes it is when I sold my first piece of art. And it's all mine, just mine, to do with as I want. I don't have to pay someone else's bills with it, just mine. I'm proud of myself. To earn it, I had to drive in the dark and in the snow, which has always terrified me and which I have always avoided by any means possible. But I did it, and now I feel more confident that I can make it through this rough patch in my life on my own. There are still a few challenges ahead, but I have a plan now, and eventually everything will turn out all right. AND I have Monday off. Life is good.
I just love the colors in the picture above, another Christmas Eve junkyard photo. Have an art-filled weekend.
