Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
You all strangers give me gifts here in the daily questions and the Gratitude Lounge! Thank you!
Acceptance as opposed to Tolerance? I’m getting to be a broken record today with this message. Warm wishes to you, Doreen!
Acceptance, Linda? I’ve been told that Acceptance is preferable to Detachment. In any case, I send you warm wishes! I’m soo lucky that my holiday family dramas have passed. Change will come – eventually
Yes! ‘the new normal’ – a new father was looking fwd to when his life would get back to Normal, and his colleagues told him this was ‘the new normal.’ That was in the last millennium – I see it has a new meaning now. Thanks for your comment.
I’ve heard that Acceptance is recommended in place of Detachment. Many warm wishes to you!
Yes, Noreen! I got fired from my volunteer job, and it turned out to be a gift to put me where I need to be instead. I was slow to see that this apparently perfect volunteer job, in terms of location and purpose, was not where I belonged. My anger should have given me a clue..
Wow – thanks – turn towards it! I wasn’t expecting that
A ‘fur-baby’ – how dear!
What a great skill! Thanks
Cool – gratitude for the skills of Others! That’s a Grateful insight. Thanks
Adding a Heart to this but haven’t figured out how yet!
My exciting new creative project is ‘Mixed-Media Books’, inspired by Gabe Cyr’s book. I take an unneeded book out of my bookshelf and cut, paste, decorate as I wish – then put it back in the bookshelf. I want to glue my granddaughters’ little 3D pen plastic creations in holes that I’m cutting in my latest ‘altered book.’
My creativity of the ‘cleaning-out” type involves ways to fit more stuff comfortably into my space!
Ah, yes, those SHOULD’s we put in your mind! May peace be with you – or not. I wouldn’t want to Should on you!
Yes, I worried/pondered for some years about the ‘love letters’ we’re told to write to loved ones that will be read after my death. Especially because I have 2 kids and 2 grandchildren who would be likely to compare their letters! When I asked my dear sister-in-law about them, she said not to write them. She says whatever she needs to say while she’s still alive. That’s good news, though, about your gift and letter that were treasured.
