Thankful Thursday:) More Blessings Than I Can Count

23 Apr

“Sometimes we spend so much time and energy thinking about where we want to go that we don’t notice where we happen to be.”
― Dan Gutman

I start out my day, every day, thinking of what I am thankful for and counting my blessings. It is said that you can wire or rewrite your brain to be happy if you do this. First thing, don’t even get out of bed, just think of all your blessings. Don’t let any negative thoughts or chores or work worries even slide in there.

This morning I was thankful for a cool cloudy day. I’m delighted that I have so many friends and family that I can depend on, but also, they can depend on me. I’m doggie sitting for Mr. Mike’s dog, Bella. Instead of feeling encumbered, I tell myself, “Now, you have to get your lazy butt up and walk the dog,” so it gets me moving. Then, several more walks during the day. Mr. Mike can count on me.

I wanted to go early vote for our local elections this afternoon, so I called Helene and asked her if she was going to vote and maybe we could grab some lunch.

We voted over at Fire station 5. It killed me not to take some treats for the firemen, but NO… not yet. Hey, we used a Q-tip to select each candidate. Cool!
After lunch, a stop at church for Adoration, pray the rosary, light a candle, and put a little something in the poor box. Also, a quick stop to visit Mr. Jerry.

I am so thankful for the faith that I grew up with. It really doesn’t matter what you call your religion or your church, but if you were raised to love and respect others, and that there’s a more powerful force out there besides our own selfish existence, well, that’s pretty awesome.

Feeling blessed and thankful.
