We were were blessed with some icy fog last night, and while it makes my joints ache like crazy, this is what I get to look at while in a great deal of pain. It takes my mind away from me so I can look with wonder at this beautiful scene. Someday, I want to paint it to look at whenever I want. Always looking towards doing more and learning more, I just hope there is enough time.
Every night, before I go to sleep, I repeat a prayer I embroidered on a picture years ago, “Dear God, Be Good to Me. The Sea is so Wide, and My Boat is so Small.” It sets my mind right, knowing I’m a small fish in a big ocean, yet I know I’m unique and special in God’s eyes. He is so good to me. I’m fairly healthy, have a wonderful husband, and a happy life, with four smart and beautiful grandkids, good human beings for kids and stepkids, and their spouses, we are so blessed to have the life we do.
I spent the day working on a project for a friend, and it was challenging. I’m grateful for learning a new quilting technique and for helping someone I love as a sister. It’s a nice change from creating stories, so it’s a good way to spend the day. It’s my priority for tomorrow, too.
I thank you for reading today. I will be here tomorrow, and I hope you are, too. Life is better with friends.
