I believe this time of year helps us focus on our blessings, but it's something I try to remember every day. I am blessed that my parents are still here. Mema enjoyed our holiday meal and actually ate quite a bit (a good thing). Papa was just happy to be with mema and have us all around him. More memories were created and a few pictures taken to capture the moments. We got the food all cooked and carried to the nursing home for our meal. It was DELICIOUS (if I do say so myself). We were able to share with the staff members who had to work. I hope you were able to enjoy your blessings and create memories.
I am also blessed as my BFF Patti came to spend the holiday with my family which provided a bit of stress relief. She helped me relax a bit as we did a little shopping (not the Friday rush) and a little eating. We have not done much, but she has been there to help every step of the way. As I'm not in Virginia to decorate for Christmas this year, we decorated papa's house (even put a few things outside - we'll see if he notices).
So much happening in the world both positive and negative. I try to focus on the positive. I can not believe some of the rude comments that appear on FB to an innocent posting. I guess there are some people that just need to be heard so to speak. It's been nice this past week to see some wonderful pictures and thoughts of thankfulness. There are some great Christmas commercials out there this year that make me smile. I don't always care about the company or product, but the commercials are a nice treat.
I am going to leave it here today. Lots of thoughts in my mind, but I can't seem to put them in writing today. I hope you have a good week. Take care. Chat soon. Marie
Instead of the quotes I usually place here, I'm posting a Thanksgiving Prayer. I hope you enjoy it.
