Thankful Thursday:) So Many Blessings

22 Nov

Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.

It was a cloudy drizzly Thursday, and you would think that would be a bad thing. Nope! I grabbed my umbrella and went for a long walk. We could use the rain, so it was a blessing. I saw a butterfly in my driveway and smiled. The trees were spewing colorful leaves, and several neighbors were hanging Christmas lights, competing with the fall pumpkins and scarecrows.

I ran some errands, post office, bank, and the grocery store. I ran into my friend Rose at Kroger. A quick hug and, “See ya tonight at karaoke.”

Then, a visit to church for Adoration, for quiet prayer, and to light a candle. It’s always so tranquil and calm sitting totally alone in the huge sanctuary. Another time to count my blessings and just say, “Thank You.” I could feel my heart beat slow down and my muscles relax. Gratitude changes your attitude.

Thursday night karaoke at Delaney’s Irish Pub is always a blast, good friends, good food, singing and dancing. Bob belting out “God Bless the USA,” More blessings. Life is good.
