Hey there! When I find pretty blogs with good ideas, I get all overwhelmed & start to hyperventilate. I found this pretty place & loved the idea of taking time to give thanks each day & calling it the "joy dare." There are even 'thankful' assignments for each day of the month & 'joy lists' for you to write your thankfulness each day. Did I say these two items are also pretty?
So, I printed them both out, gave thanks for yesterday & today, then felt goofy. I mean I was actually thankful for what I wrote, but it just looked so weird. Then I decided it's not weird - I'm not in the habit of writing things down, no matter how small. It should get better as I go.
I'm thankful I found such a place.
I am thankful that I had the chance to meet the accountant (last year) who prepped my taxes. She was also battling cancer. She passed away this past Monday. I'll never forget her presence, so strong, yet so frail.
I am thankful for my son's peaceful, calm, spirit.
I am thankful that "D" took it upon himself to take the left over pork roast, add it to the crock w/veggies & slow cook all night. The smells were heavenly & by morning, we had dinner ready & I had lunch.
I am thankful for family, always.
I am thankful for the power of words or a touch. It really doesn't require much to encourage folks, or give them a little touch when you're talking. You'd be amazed how relaxed it makes them :-)
Finally, I am thankful for being wonderfully, powerfully, and uniquely made. Thanks, God.
Till next time, stay thankful!!
