Full Hearts…

Today…I am thankful…and…hopefully…I will be tomorrow…and the next day…and the next…and the next…and every day after that…

Hopefully…I won’t rely on…Thanksgiving Day…or even the entire month of November…to take the time to remember all of the blessings in my life…but…I know…there are days that I will forget…in the midst of life complications…and…just busyness…just how fortunate I am…

In fact…just to be able to write this blog…involves many a blessing…freedom of speech…the internet…health…a computer…electricity…ideas…coffee…and last but not least…Bertha

Who…reminds me…that…yes…I will forget on many days to truly appreciate all that I am and all that I have…but…she says…that’s why there are 365 days in the year…and that as long as I hit more than…183…of them…I’ll be doing alright…

Oh…andBertha…has a Thanksgiving blessing for everyone…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone…may your hearts be even fuller than your tummies!

Freedom’s Choice…

This morning…I’m sitting here…quietly spending a few minutes before getting ready for Church…and…I am overcome with…gratitude…that…I am free to do that…or…not…as I choose…

Bertha…says…freedom…is truly priceless…and…that…I should make mine count today…in some way…

I’m not sure…exactly what she means by that…but…I think she means…I should celebrate…being able to make choices…by…making good ones…choices…that uplift me…that sustain me…that bring me joy…

Hmmm…I think I can do that…
