To Be Thankful
I find sometimes that there is a stressful situation that I am in...and I am still emotional about a situation in my life. That said, I must be doing pretty well with the problem, because...my skin always tells me when I am not doing well. My skin tells me by breaking out in blemishes, and I am 63. Age doesn't stop my face..........Last summer when I was really stressed out I came down with shingles. That was truly horrible.
There is always something to be thankful for...so true. I say prayers of thankfulness regularly. I have gratitude and am thankful for the good things in my life. I have learned that it is important to let go of the situations, problems, and people that drain the life from you. Brave Girls Club is important to me...I have been taught some important facts of life.
What am I thankful for today? Something very simple...that we finally had a little rain, and there is some small rainfall coming our way. The drought is far from over but....The sky is clear of the forest fire smoke that has been here for several weeks.
The drought has been difficult for a long time.The Pacific NW USA normally has abundant rainfall, and a fabulous climate. This year is quite the opposite. Hot, and very dry.
Did you read my post about the Owl? I am still haunted by the incident...I am so very thankful. There could have been a terrible wildfire started, and I could have lost everything....
