Linking up with Dayle a Simple Pleasures
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend" Melody Beattie
The kids have been at camp....canoeing, hiking, having fun. Me? I've been busy around the house.... writing...reading...and thinking about stuff....mostly about all the good things in my life....They're so many of them....things like....
-My youngest. She makes life fun. A few months ago my dgt. wanted a fish. Being cheap I bought her five little feeder fish for 20 cents a piece. They lasted a month. My dgt. said she wanted another one....a more expensive one. I splurged. I paid $5.00 for a fancy goldfish. She named it Jimmy. Who names their fish Jimmy? But my dgt. loves him...and he makes her happy. Jimmy has hung around for six months and still going strong.
-Rain. Last couple of days it rained. Not a downpour but still...rain. I think I heard the plants and flowers sigh.
-Opportunities. I've been booked to speak every month, once a week starting in the fall and in the first few months in 2012. I've also been talking with a distributor about the possibility of them distributing my book across North America.
-Time spent with family. I've got an amazing family. I really do. I don't know how that happened.....but I'm so grateful for them.
-His friendship - It boggles my mind that He created the whole earth.....every living animal...all the flowers.....and trees and plants and everybody in the world....and yet......He calls me His friend.....that's totally incredible to me.
