Good day all of my good, good friends!! I want to wish everyone a very, very blessed Thanksgiving!! I am in a much better space today and feeling so thankful that I have my family and doctors and especially my pain control :-). I went to my doctor yesterday and got everything straightened away. I wanted to thank everyone who sent me kind wishes and concerns. It was so thoughtful. I know how much I am looked after and cared for by my fellow journalers and friends and family. It NEVER ceases to amazed me. So, with that, I send out one amazing group hug - (((((((J-Land)))))) - You know who you are one by one!! You wrote, commented, emailed and IM'ed me. Alot of times I am thinking out loud in my journal, never meaning or intending to get any responses, and then I get a deluge of responses when they are needed most. Amazing!
I wanted to wish everyone a very blessed day tommorrow. I do hope you all have a good day with your families. If you do not have families, I hope you have found a niche that you have made into a family of your own. I am so thankful for all of you and for your readership! Know that you are part of my family, too! Every day for a few hours you come into my home and you laugh and smile and even cry with me. I am so thankful for that! The thing I am most thankful for is your encouragement, though. I get feedback that is non-judgmental. You have never met me, yet you pray for me, you encourage me and you don't cut me out when I make a mistake or say something stupid. Oh, how I wish the real world was like that! You choose to spend time with me, yet you have never met me!! Still amazing me, here, can you tell?!
I am someone who has never lost her amazement with life. The small things of life. My daughter says I act like a child sometimes. When she brought me flowers home the other day, I smelled them, rubbed them up against my cheeks and danced around the room. She was quite happy about this, but she cocked her head sideways and said, "Mom, why are you acting like that? They are just flowers?" I told her, "Chelsea, I am happy! I appreciate things. I hope that you never lose your child-likeness!" I sat and watched her for about an hour after that. A smile never left her face. I don't know if it was the flower incident or not, but I sure hope so. We should all be appreciative and happy of the small things. The little things. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!
