Thankful Thursdays are a rare moment during which the only thing I focus on are my points of blessings – of things I never even knew I wanted but received from the Creator anyway, in answer to my heart’s cry. And, more importantly, of things that are often times forgotten as I focus on what’s missing instead of what’s present. Not today.
We survived not just one but TWO natural disasters in the past week: an earthquake and a hurricane! Okay, they weren’t that bad – but it could have been much worse, and we were spared!
I’ve had the opportunity for a really good conversation of great depth twice in the past two days, when I needed it most. I am ridiculously thankful for people who stop and listen and care when I’m hurting. It’s essential.
It is SEPTEMBER. And September is a month we have been waiting for, for over a year! We have two wonderful friends returning from the sandbox within this month, God willing!
And now, on to dancing the day away….
(If you would like to join me on this journey, I’d love to provide a link to your gratitude project on my blog, so let me know! I’m sure we all have a lot to teach each other about thankfulness!.)
