What started this thought train was a sudden absence of pain in my left shoulder. For almost six months I have been struggling with some rotator cuff pain. Suddenly, it was gone—not forever—but for about an hour I was pain free, and the reminder of what that felt like generated an immediate thank you to God.
It also brought back a rush of other things I was thankful for this year.
Rain—lots of it—bringing an end to the drought (even if only temporarily).
A beautiful spring and rather mild summer
A home to call my own
The ability (health/finances) to enjoy my passions
A wonderful celebration of Life for my sister Jamie
Friends who look out for me
My immediate and extended family who are always there for each other
I could go on and on. I should go on in on. Not necessarily here, but in the privacy of my own journal. A grateful heart reminds us of a loving and faithful heavenly father.
May this fall season find you reflecting on and sharing what you are grateful for.
