Love never ends.
1 Corinthians 13:8
In a PEANUTS cartoon, Lucy is berating Charlie Brown for losing the baseball game for their team. She says, You blockhead! You struck out, and we lost the last game of the season!
Then she adds accusingly, You were standing there thinking about your new girlfriend, weren't you?
As Charlie Brown walks away, he mumbles, I thought being in love was supposed to make you happy.
Well, love is an important part of happiness. Studies have proven that people in love are much happier. The same is true for people who get involved. They are much happier than people who complain, but never do anything to change the situation
Having a large family means that you are always involved in others lives. And believe me, I am thankful for that every day of my life.
I live alone now, but that doesn't mean I don't have people that I love in my life. My family is increasing in size and every year or so it seems I'm blessed with a new grand'babe' or two to love and cuddle.
I told my daughter the other day that having a baby is wonderful and your life is never the same again. I enjoyed having a large family and joys just keep coming.
Today I'm thankful for all of my family and I pray for those that are alone especially at this time of year with CHRISTMAS approaching.
I'll end with this quote today because I think it sums it all up very nicely
Family life is full of major and minor crises - the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce - and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.
Have a Merry Monday Everyone!
Life is very often like being on a Merry Go Round
Enjoy the ride!
