In light of Thanksgiving this week, this will be a thankful Muse.
~ I'm thankful that it snowed yesterday. It means that our local ski hill will be open before too long.
~ I'm thankful that as I raised up my arm to wave at a neighbor that as I "ally-ooped" that I didn't land on my keister.
~ I'm thankful afresh for my health this week. It has been very real to me if we don't have our health, nothing else really matters.
~ I'm thankful that we are celebrating a birthday this week. This one if for my dad who is turning 84! He was born on Thanksgiving morning in a farmhouse in rural Minnesota. This year his birthday again falls on Thanksgiving.
~ I'm thankful that though we are spending this holiday with 'my' family, I'm glad I wish I was spending it with the Chairman's family too.
~ I'm thankful calories do not count on Thanksgiving.
~ I'm thankful the guys building the house next door don't mind a four-legged golden spectator.
~ I'm thankful that the reason I've been busy is because there is a perfect plan of a ministry that is homeless. Yes, they need homes, but more so, we need them in our homes. We need the encouragement and thoughts and even laughter to be shared over a meal, game, or serious study.
So this will have to be enough for the Musing this week. Because of thoughtful relatives, I may just be alone most of Friday. And for that, I am thankful!
