It's probably one of the busiest times of year, preparing for Thanksgiving, making arrangements and plans for Christmas around the corner, shopping, planing, meal and merry making... and lots of unfinished projects hoping to get completed by Christmas. It's also the time of year that I make a myself a promise to lay down my brushes and paint, to say "yes" to somethings and "no" to a lot of things. I stop everything to pay more attention to my surroundings, to my family and my friends that are so important to me. To speak to neighbors and to "notice" the flood of blessings that cover me daily. I don't want to be too busy to "notice" and to say Thank you for what others do for me and how people care for me, even down to the mail person and the checker at the grocery store. It's important to me to stop and "notice" what a blessed life I have and those that help to make that possible.
If you are here, then you care what I have to share and I thank you for hearting, commenting and being a part of a community that supports one another.
Thanksgiving will come and go quickly, but I will do all I can to slow it down, to enjoy it, to speak to friends, to give hugs, to share smiles, to be eternally grateful for this time and quiet reflective moments....before the rush of the Christmas holidays are full blown.
From my grateful heart to yours,
After Turkey... and a NAP.
