thankfullness – an old blog

I was looking at some old blogs I moved because they were important to me – some lessons are worth revisiting. ♥

In our lives, we face many things. Some things are
devastating. Some things alter who we are and how we are as people.
I would like to offer to all of you this morning, that if
you can come through your trials with your thankfullness in
tact… you will be counted among the world’s strongest
people. Not everyone is capable of suffering and remaining
pliable and vulnerable, and capable of LOVING others. If
you can look in your heart and see that little things ‘touch’
you and bring happiness, PLEASE; count your blessings and
give yourself credit for the strength you possess. Your
heart is in tact and you are an overcomer. You are strong, and
healing from all things comes in time. ESPECIALLY when we
have the ability to count our blessings.

What a wonderful blessing …the
PERCEPTION of thankfullness.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.

    When there is nothing more to loose you let go, and the Universe sweeps you along…through this journey, with so much taken and gone, there is nothing left but to love.
