I am thankful for all of my children and grandchildren - they bring me so much joy.
I am thankful for friends close by, and the many online friends I have made through my sharing. My sharing intended as an online diary so my grandchildren might know their grandmother better has turned into communication with special people from around the world. Each person that responds to me is a blessing and encourages this One Woman along the way.
I am thankful that when I was allowed to leave the home place that healed me over 30 years ago - that I was allowed to return 18 months ago. It was a difficult time with building a home in the city, moving, trying but my heart knew this was not where I belonged. Thankful that I was able to return to my woods property and build a home that is perfect for someone in the last part of her life. Thankful that when many questioned if this was a smart decision, that I knew in my heart that this was what I was suppose to do.
I am thankful that I can see, hear, walk, talk, drive, write, and have a sensitive heart.
I sit and type and at a loss for words for all the thankfulness in my heart. I wonder how can you express totally with words you put on paper. It is impossible.
Consistently expressing sincere and heartfelt gratitude for what you already have is the underlying and often overlooked force which opens door to immeasurable abundance and happiness.
