Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
I’m grateful for…
*Unusually warm weather for the next couple of days
*A miraculous healing with my neck on Sunday…I am not a sane person on painkillers, but it is a bit entertaining.
*A little boy who still likes to squeeze my arm fat and nestle in my neck, while making me laugh with all his never-ending thoughts on every topic…
*A teenager who still reaches to hold my hand…in public
*A husband who tells me I’m beautiful every day, even when I see the dark circles and wacky morning hair
*Plenty of food, always…
*Twizzlers. They are saving my life lately.
*Vietnamese coffee~strong coffee with sweetened condensed milk.
*Jobs that are coming right and left~something I did not see happening a year ago
*Safety for my girl and all her friends on the school bus Friday. She got off and within less than a half hour, the bus and a car had a head-on collision. Both caught on fire and all three passengers in the car were killed. Normally, two people would still have been on the bus, but they went home with friends that day. I’m so grateful the kids didn’t go through the trauma of the accident and that they were all safely home. And it’s heartbreaking for the family who lost their grandmother and two children. My heart is heavy for them. It’s difficult to even process the relief with the horror for those who didn’t have such a happy ending as we did.
*New puppy love~he’s not mine, but we bonded anyway…at Bible Study. Indigo says this puppy could get anything with those eyes and I’d have to agree.
*The friends who have come in my life that are real and true and kindred spirits and all that I wish for in friends…so grateful.
*Pictures my daughter draws~they make me smile.
*Laughing and making people laugh. I get a thrill from both.
*An English muffin with peanut butter and honey…Mmm.
*Writing. And books. And the opportunity to have both in my life in abundance. And music. I’m full.
