Gratitude unlocks the fulness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
July 17th - Thankful Sunday
When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.
This is my day to reflect on the many blessings that came my way this week, of which I have many.
I’m thankful for my short vacation, it was good to get away from home for awhile and see something new. Sadly it rained most every day but I’m thankful my daughter had a porch to sit on and out of the rain, none of our storms brought any damage with them. With so many weather distracters going on around the country, all we got was rain and nothing bad.
I’m thankful for my home to come back to. It’s where I’m most comfortable in the world. I call it my happy place, because it is cozy and comfy. No matter what the weather, I’m safe there and it’s a peaceful place to be.
I’m thankful that many are now able to vacation more than ever. But with the variant now causing lots of problems, we still have to be careful. The only way we’re going to beat this virus is for every one to be fully vaccinated and we’re not there yet, But we who are vaccinated can go most any place safely.
I’m thankful that once again my family is all safe, healthy and happy. It’s something I pray for them daily and I’m thankful for answered prayers. I’m thankful to be back in our church onee more, I even got brave enough to go last week without wearing a mask for the first time. Not many wear them now if they’ve had the vaccination. I still keep a safe distance and wash my hands often.
I’m thankful for hand sanitizer when soap and water are not handy. It kills the germs and makes us safer.
I can’t say thank you enough it seems. the more I have to be thankful for the more things I see to make me thankful. The list goes on and on.
I hope you too can count your blessings and not your problems.
I hope you all have a restful and relaxing Sunday!
Feeling gratitude and not expressing its like wrapping a present and not giving it.
