When I visited Rhondi’s blog Rose Colored Glasses this afternoon, and I saw she was hosting Thankful Thursday, I thought-
I want to do that.
No- I NEED to do that.
In no particular order:
*I am thankful for grace.
*I am thankful for my husband, daughters,grandsons, son-in-law, face-to-face friends, and blog friends.
*I am thankful these special people ALL GET IT- whatever IT happens to be.
*I am thankful that I can read and write.
*I am thankful for words and how they can be arranged and switched and how we are all using the same words DIFFERENTLY.
*I am thankful for my home- not because of its appearance , but because I believe it has a heart. It is welcoming and relaxing , it never judges, and it has HEARD IT ALL and still opens its doors daily.
*I am grateful my home was across the street from where I taught and that my teacher friends could walk over every December for my annual Christmas party.
When I am away from it, I crave it. Although the axiom, ‘when you are in get out, and when you are out get in’, can apply to easing the anxiousness we all sometimes feel, I prefer IN.
That works every time.
*Finally, I am grateful that this list could go on forever, that I have a chicken stewing in my new red cast iron pot, and a new book to read.
