Still Thankful

give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

As we struggle with everything going on in the world and our personal lives, it’s easy to forget about what’s good. And there’s always something good. As I was showering today, I thought of all the things I’m thankful for. I’m sure there are many more that I’m forgetting right now.

I’m thankful for:

  • Being retired and having the time to help my parents.
  • My comfortable home and how much I love spending time in it.
  • Tim having a successful surgery before all this happened.
  • Tim not working right now and that he could be home until this has all passed.
  • Plenty of food to eat.
  • My parents being safe.
  • My company that provided us with a pension plan so I’m not stressing (well, only a little) over what’s happening with my 401(k) and other investments.
  • My sister and brother-in-law who are taking care of my dad so well.
  • Feeling good and not having to deal with my own issues right now.
  • All the books I have to read, all the projects I can work on. I’ll never run out of things to do!!
  • Everything Tim has brought into my life – companionship, love, support, patience, understanding, grandkids, and two sweet kitties to love for 3.5 and 4 years.
  • The love and support from my friends and family especially during this challenging time. I’ve even made some new Facebook friends.
  • Our leaders who are making tough decisions with no precedent to follow.
  • Our wonderful week in Florida before the **it really hit the fan.
  • The small inventory of supplies – paper towels, toilet paper, Puffs – that I always keep on hand.
  • Last, but not least, finding two almost full canisters of disinfecting wipes and a few small bottles of hand sanitizer already in the house. 😷

Have faith, be thankful, and be smart everyone!! 💕💕
