Oooh, this is a tough one! I try, I really try…but it’s tough!
It’s all good. Not all easy; but all good.
God: persistent, ongoing, eternal gifts. Any problems I’ve had, I created. I know that now.
I had objected to my “over-service” to my 91-year-old mother (I am one of 8.) One sister took offense that I had neglected to appreciate her service with different family members.
This AM I thanked her for that. Rift healed.
I guess Mass. It beat out a walk! 🙂
I have been so blessed–the recipient of many smiles from strangers. Why is it so difficult for ME to smile at others the way they do? Dunno. I’ve had the poker face so long, I don’t “know” another way to be. It feels false when I do smile. This has been bothering me for years.
My cat Lucy when she bounds across the room to me when I squat down!
Happy August, all!!
Wow, even considering an “extraordinary” life is, well, extraordinary!
Possible part time job loss when my company’s sale is complete in the future. Strangely enough (and considering my past history) it doesn’t feel like struggle. This is God; not me.
I’m a 12-stepper so “weeds” to me would be my defects. I grow so tired of them–I may even CHANGE (or be changed!)
I’m pretty good at receiving help; but damned if I don’t know how to receive love…let it in. Can give it, but don’t know how to go the other way.
The way people I don’t know will smile at me unsolicited.
Just have to share: today’s quote about being “right on time,” in essence, is so helpful for me…my WHOLE life I’ve been convicted that I am “behind” my peers! Thanks, gratefulness team!!
My story is pretty checkered: grave physical and mental illness. It’s not limiting because I’ve also had the experience of having the duress I experienced turn into boundless grace that has let me recover and thrive.
It’s the “smaller” stories: “Why am I always out-of-sorts, impatient, intolerant” that really beset me. I DO limit myself with these, as I try manfully to allow the same grace to effect a change in them.
Yes, it is!
