Thankful

At this time of year I find myself reflecting back on the previous months, and I think of all the things that I am grateful for. I am certainly not alone in this practice, as there is an entire holiday devoted to doing just that. But I find that I tend to do it much more at this time of year than I do at the end of the year when many others do their looking back.HZRobbins

This is a hard one for me this year. Losing my Dad unexpectedly was a gut blow that nearly took me down. I was not prepared and I was not ready and I was and still am utterly devastated. So the thought of grateful makes me think of being grateful for the nearly 56 years I did have my Dad, and Grateful for his guidance, for his friendship, for his wisdom, for his time, his humor, his laughter, his interest and so much more. I am also grateful for my remaining family that is growing ever tighter the smaller we get. And grateful for a husband who loveMiss Zellied my Dad almost as much as I did and misses him too, and understands what I am going through even to the point of getting Miss Zellie. Which brings me to my gratitude for 2 ¼ lbs of fur and love who has absolutely saved me. I have mad love and gratitude to my friends who have been there for me and checked on me regularly and brightened my days more than I have brightened theirs.The Boys

I have gratitude to those who have stood by me and with me while I have weathered a few of the toughest years of my life. And I have gratitude that the sun is rising on a new day and a new beginning. I am grateful for having the ability to see beyond myself and what’s going on with me to see that there are other’s that have a need. I am grateful to those that are helping me to turn this vision into a reality.

I am grateful for the good in the world. I am grateful for the kindness that still exists despite what the news would have youBesties believe. I am grateful for the advancements in medicine and science and technology. I am grateful I live in the USA. I am grateful for the laughter I hear when my family gathers and the hugs and kisses we share. I and grateful for the food on our plates. I am grateful for the roof over our heads, and I am grateful to everyone who reads my blog posts.

 

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
