Feeling Thankful

As we approach Thanksgiving, I have no particular plans. I tend to fly by the seat of my pants so to speak and try to enjoy life as it comes. I used to enjoy the holidays but over the years a lot of my family members have passed away and it is just not the same. And yet, I find comfort in each passing day.

That being said I look at life not more seriously but appreciate even the smallest things. Even the quiet days have meaning. I appreciate that I am reasonably healthy but I won’t be running any marathons any time soon. I am quite satisfied to sit with a crochet hook in my hand or inspirational words from my Bible.

I no longer watch the news since it is full of garbage anyway but prefer cleaner shows like reruns of the Waltons that at least show the close ties of families that in some families no longer exists. I don’t dwell on the past but tend to accept what is. I always said I have no patience but God has certainly made sure I learned a few lessons in that.

Things may be getting worse in the world but staying calm and keeping sane is what is important. I put my faith above all things. The future will be according to God’s plan not my own.

All things considered I am grateful for the life I have. I have family I adore and friends I value. Overall I am blessed and thankful.

Have a wonderful holiday and be safe and healthy. God bless each and every one of you.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
