OMGosh! It’s early evening already and I failed to take a moment to collect my thoughts around gratitude. I’ve enjoyed my blessings since yesterday.
A sister, who chats with me for an hour on the phone and then says something so silly, so relatable, that I must laugh out loud for a full thirty seconds. I love you Bonita, and I won’t tell the public what you said, but sister, the main reason I laughed so hard, is because I’ve had that shoe on both feet.
A sister who texts me to schedule lunch, no make that breakfast because she’s “passing by” from Wisconsin to Michigan. Oh Julie, (and your husband, Randy) what a lovely surprise.
A sister who texted then called to schedule a visit next weekend. Deanna and Mom and what’s that? Another sister, Karen is coming. (Yes, I have a lot of sisters. Maybe Marcia, Cheryl, Vickie will call before the weeks’ over.) Woot! Who could be more blessed.
A group rate now that I have fourteen grandchildren to attend our annual theatre outing for the holidays. Lucky, lucky me, 14 grandchildren close enough and excited to spend an afternoon with grammy and grampy.
Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. Writing, writing, writing. I must pinch myself with gratitude.
An invitation to go to the zoo with grandchild number 14. How, oh how, could I ever refuse that cute little brown-eyes, curly-headed boy?
I got invited to perform in a flute trio. Yes, we’re all amateurs. Yes, it’s a simple song. Still, I’m so thankful to be asked.
Only one day of frost so far this fall. I can hardly believe the mild weather. And I’m loving it.
Vinegar and water. All of my cabinet fronts are washed. My floors and banisters, too. I love that fresh, clean smell.
Diaper Bank Dancing with the Stars. What a wonderful organization, providing diapers to people who can’t afford them. The testimony of young mothers and the elderly was so touching. A beautiful gala event for such a great cause.
I feel like that’s just the beginning. There’s so much to be thankful about today, this week, this month.
