Linking with Cami at Thankful Thursday
"The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been." Madeleine L'Engle
I think this age thing is a gift. As I'm getting older...I see and do things differently than how I would have...even from a year ago. I chose not to react or be impulsive like before.
Maturity? Age? Not sure but looking back over this past year and what's happened....my attitude's changed - I trust more....and I'm more willing to wait things out then to act impulsive and quick.
I see it with my kids too. My 12 year is talking different...with more understanding....more reason.....and she's moving differently in her world. And my 16 year old.....the passion she has to take on her world...make a huge difference......no fears.....
This week I'm thankful for....
-seeing things clearer.....more positive...with greater hope and peace.
-My book, Dancing Softly, finally done. Finito. Now working on the cover and then off to publish next tues.Yeahh!!!
-Discovered a retreat centre in the mountains for writers and artists It's a place we plan to visit often.
-Incredible talks with my girls....Their slant on things totally inspires me.
-Mostly.....knowing He's there always....arranging pieces of my life....bringing loose ends together....making sense of the confusing....pumping me with hope and peace and joy...not b/c of perfect circumstances....but just the knowing that He's there ....working behind the scenes for my highest good.
