Oh Give Thanks

Well, I was stood up this evening, by some neophytes, who claim they want to learn to knit. Well their lack of appearance and subsequent lack of a courteous call to say, "I won't be able to make it." shows their true level of enthusiasm. One person did call, and she felt so badly for me, but I'm okay. It was just a little knitting...right?

Instead of knitting I folded some laundry, went over my floors and unloaded my dishwasher. So I was productive, although I could have been sharing my joy and passion with others, but I digress. I am thankful they did not show because I got some work done that would have been left until "later", after the kids were in bed, and before hubby got home. There would have been something of a rush, (well maybe not), but still it would have been later. And so I am grateful for the no-shows. It was a blessing in disguise.

Moving on. Since it is the season for "giving thanks", -(um, you know you should do this everyday right?) I will go ahead and list a few of the things that I am thankful for.
  • My family
  • my health
  • my friends
  • my creativity
  • the many blessings of Jesus Christ

I hope and pray that all of you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

And remember: Pace yourself, its a marathon, not a sprint.

Be Safe.
