Loren Killdeer ( @Loren Killdeer

Today is just Thursday, I woke up late, I got to write my thousand words, and I worked. I drove through the city with my mother, and I visited my boyfriend. He is six years older than me; he is incredibly big, he used to do Aikido when he was younger; but he is so incredibly kind.
He is studying to be a nurse, because he wants to help people. He lives in a room tinier than a prison room, stuck next to a garage. On winter the room is terribly cold, and on summer is asphyxiating. He made the roof and the floor himself.
When I came to visit today he moved his chair to hug me by the waist. I was stressed, anxious and tired. He was tired too, he has an important exam tomorrow and we are both scared. I know he is going to pass.
He told me he missed me terribly. I had been so depressed this week I couldn’t work to say an entire sentence all together. I said I missed him too, but I wasn’t sure if I was telling the truth. Now I realize I was.
We had a nap together. It washed every bad feeling I had in my body. I left early because I wanted to write, and I kind of regret it.
Today is just Thursday.
For all of you on Thanksgiving:
I’m thankful for my boyfriend, who still misses me, loves me, even though when I’m nothing but a mess inside.
I’m thankful for my mother and father in good health. They gave me the name of a writer after all.
I’m thankful for all the progress I made. Even though I haven’t gone far yet, I have gone the further I ever did.
I’m thankful for all my new friends and the old ones, the ones that write, the ones that read and the ones that don’t do any of those things, but that they stay.
And I’m thankful for you, if you are reading this. You are my fuel to keep on writing.
Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you have a feast.
