Tomorrow is filled with shopping, baking, and last minute preparations. I am ahead of the game already so that makes me feel relaxed and less stressed. I am hoping that all of you are feeling the same and that you all have time to reflect on what you are thankful for.
I never like to write lists. I don't know why really. I just have never really needed them. But, today I am writing a list of things I am thankful for. Here goes:
THINGS I AM THANKFUL FOR:
- my health and the health of those that I love and are close to me.
- the ability to forgive.
- new friends in my life.
- the love that I feel for mankind.
- my home and land, an abundant fresh water supply, and fresh air to breathe.
- retirement and retirement income.
- health insurance.
- the blessings of a spiritual community.
- and much, much more.
I send blessings out to all of you who follow my blog. I know that many of you do not introduce yourself to me but I hope you are enjoying your visit here. I write this blog with the intention of sharing my humble life but also with the hopes that by showing you that I am human, you will acknowledge the humanity within yourselves. I write to learn to be more tolerant of others and to see the differences in each of us that make us unique. I also write as a sort of diary and a way of learning. This world is a wonderful place, filled with so many opportunities and opinions. If just half of what I learn from all of you rubs off on me, I am a truly blessed. My eyes are continually being opened. To that I am forever thankful. I love you all (yes, you too!).
