I LOVE the Thanksgiving holiday.
The only thing I have to shop for is food.
Cooking, and baking for my family brings such joy to my heart.
Having all the kids, and grandkids around the table enjoying themselves makes my heart sing.
I thank God for such a wonderful gift.....my family.
Instead of waking up to a snow storm, this morning I opened my eyes to sunshine and blue skies.
The light came bursting through the windows from all directions.
It was glorious!
By the way....the thing on the floor that looks like a "gift" from one of the dogs....I am "thankful" was just one of their chew toys...wink*
Winter has come early this year. So many have experienced horrific amounts of snow already. The weather has been causing havoc all over the world these past few years.
I pray for safety, and travel mercies for those traveling in the difficult conditions that seem to plague us in all areas.
I am thankful that I can hear....because when I walk into one of my daughter's homes, I always hear the sound of little feet running toward me, and the voice of a child yelling "gramma!"
It warms my heart when they have their little arms open wide, and they jump up into mine...hugging me tight around my neck, and giving me a kiss to let me know how much they love, and missed me.
I am thankful for "time" to spend with those that I love, and care about.
Life is short.
Don't waste it worrying about situations that you cannot change.
Pray for those that reject you....but stop leaving behind the ones that care, trying to win over the ones that don't.
You lose what God has for you, by hanging on to what satan reminds you of.
Stop dreading your days.
One day you will look back and wish you had all those days to live over again....but once they are gone....it's too late.
Let's be thankful for what we have...no matter how big, or how small...
Live day by day....moment by moment...just breathe.
