This is my final post of “giving thanks” for 2017. I posted a thankful entry each day of November. These are similar to my own regular journal entries, so it took a bit of courage to share them out loud here. I want to thank those who read them and commented. I appreciate each of you and your thoughts.
It is a natural thing for me to thank God for things all throughout my day, every day. I have always done this. I thank Him for helping me tie my shoes. That isn’t easy for me, so I appreciate it. I thank Him for showing me a bird or critter. I thank Him for helping Chloe Jo have a good day, or Maggie to breathe easy. I thank Him for keeping Bill safe.
I will continue to do these things. I may even post these thankful pieces occasionally. The holiday of Thanksgiving is gone. Life goes on, as it should. I am thankful for that, too. But, appreciating my blessings are important to me every day.
More blessings. Advent begins this weekend. The holidays will go into overdrive. I look forward to sharing them with Bill and all of our minions: Stella, Kenzie, Maggie, Grizelda, Chloe Jo, George, and of course, Clyde and Bee. There is much love here to share. Things work out for reasons, so we accept each one as a blessing.
I am also looking to the future. I cannot quite see it, but, I feel it. I know that 2018 is looming. The future does that; it looms. But, that is okay; I will take it as it comes. I am sure it is filled with both lessons and blessings, both joys and sorrows. I will do my part, whatever comes my way.
I trust that Tomorrow will take care of itself. I appreciate that, because the skies are looking like Winter. The snow blower sits ready for action. I won’t be sitting long. I have things to do, life to live, and much to be thankful for. Peace.
