There’s so much to be thankful for. I have hardly had a minute that hasn’t been filled with knitting and crocheting projects that have to go out to the people who have already purchased them.
This is what I asked for. It is what I told God I wanted – and that I could handle it. I am so grateful – even when I have those flares of uncertainty and fear. I am more grateful because I recognize the fear of success that I have within me.
I should have taken the time to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving – even those of you in other places where Thanksgiving is not celebrated. Every day is a day for giving thanks because each day presents some possibility – whether or not we take it is up to us – but the gift is always there. Thank God for the option not to take it up.
My brain is so fried but my hands are not tired. I’ve taken so many trips to Hobby Lobby they know me by name – the Salvation Army Santa even knows me. This is what it’s like to work for oneself. Blessings abound.
I wish you and yours the most blessed holiday season. I am thankful for so many things including those of you who have parents on earth and family near by. I cannot help but think back to the days when we would get up Thanksgiving morning and Mom pulled out her china and there was turkey with dressing, chittlins and spaghetti. Yum.
We spent Thanksgiving with Mr. Honey’s brother. His wife has sixteen brothers and sisters so there was a crowd even though they all didn’t make it. I did not feel lonely but I did miss my family.
A friend of mine lost her mother last week. I am grateful for the life she had and the relationship they shared and having lost my father on Christmas Eve, I understand the difficult time she’s going to have living through her first holiday season without her parents. Being thankful will help a little but just a little. Still.
I pray you have joy, peace and love all year round but especially at the time of the year when we look to those things as a base to stand on and a star to reach for. It really is good for us to stop – not pause – but stop – take in a deep breath of life and give thanks that though we may not who or where we want to be – we are. And that means there’s still a chance.
Thanks be to God.
