Any man's life will be filled with constant and unexpected encouragement if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day
Booker T. Washington
I make no secret of the fact that I find myself moving slower these days and getting less done. But still the days fly by and I'm always busy.
This morning I'm packing up the car and heading for the camper again. I leave behind a house that is less than tidy. Everything is not in it's place but for me it is more important to enjoy the nice weather while I can. I'll spend far too many days inside at home when November comes and the campground closes and the weather will be cold and miserable for the most part. We usually have almost 6 months favorable weather and 6 months of bad weather here where I live. I don't want to waste these precious good weather months by doing house work so I'm going to the camper.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are
It is thankful Thursday and I have another long list of things that I'm grateful for. I firmly believe that feeling thankful and expressing that thanks makes you happier and heartier too.
I'm thankful for my health and that of my family too.
I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to camp and enjoy nature
I'm so very thankful for nice weather and am praying for all the ones affected by the bad tornadoes that struck in Ohio last weekend.
I'm thankful for the blessings of beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
I'm thankful for all the little things in life that seem so common yet help to make my days brighter and more beautiful
For these and all my many blessings I am so truly thankful.
Thank you Lord!
A man can do only what he can do. But if he does that each day he can sleep at night and do it again the next day.
I hope you can find time to count your blessings this Thursday. The more time you spend thinking about your blessings, the more you'll find yourself feeling genuinely grateful for every day of your life.
