I am my own worst enemy (I really am), but that’s another post. And I love to write, but I’m terrified of blogging. That’s another post, too.
What I want to talk about today is thankfulness. It is Multitude Monday, and over at the Gratitude Community, we are building our 1000 Gift Lists. Here are the latest additions to mine:
#310: Blueberry tea from IKEA
#311: Neighborhood kids getting into an argument, and the neighbor boy asking me for help, just like I was his momma.
#312: We figured out the math problem, all of us, reasoning and thinking together.
#313: He realizes, he apologizes, and it washes clean.
#314: Hard times. They make me better.
And here is something I was tremendously grateful for on my walk recently (I wish you could smell them):
A very wise Blueberry once helped me out, right after my sister died. Maybe I’ll get that post done some day, too. For now, I’ll quote Madame Blueberry’s little song, still ringing in my head after all these years.
“…Because a thankful heart is a happy heart. Be glad for what you have, that’s an easy place to start. For a God who really cares, and he listens to our prayers. That’s why I say thanks every day.”
