Happy Thanksgiving friends,
I’ve been thinking about it this way for a while – Thanks AND Giving. You get what you give…
I have so much that I’m thankful for… I’m blessed with the best husband that I could ever imagine. I have a roof over my head, food on the table (sometimes more than I need, but I’m thankful for the realization that I’ve put a lot of thought and energy into that recently.) I have a good job that even when it’s overwhelming sometimes I know that at some point in the day I will give someone else comfort and a smile (even if I have to look in the mirror first to assure that it’s there 🙂 )
I am thankful and blessed that some of you have shared so much of yourselves with me. I will never share all, but I can tell you how unbelievable it is to me that you share so openly. I received a letter the other day that had my husband and I both in tears. “Did you ever imagine that people would respond to that story in such emotional ways?” My only response is that I shared something in my heart and it mattered to someone. Some have said it changed them. I know it changed ME. I am thankful for an imagination that I seem to have no control over, that helps me make up stories that you seem to like. 🙂 I am thankful for music that inspires some of the thoughts that develop into story lines…
Today I’m thankful that I was able to be with four of the people I love most in the world for breakfast. I’m thankful to know that the ones who couldn’t be here are safe and happy celebrating with other members of their family and PRAY that we will see each other soon. I am thankful to be home in a warm house with my feet up, watching some football with my honey who reaches over every so often and rubs my foot. 🙂
And I am thankful for YOU for believing in ME.
