So we are just past Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2015.
Let us have peace.” Ulysses Grant (1822-1885)
As you reflect on your holiday, perhaps your thoughts have begun to turn towards shopping on Black Friday, checking off a gift list for those you love, an upcoming football tailgate party, or like me, clinging to memories of those who have left us too soon, including our dear friends’ son, Taylor on March 7, 2015. With lots of folks here, six dogs, and one cat, “Louis” from St. Louis, our Thanksgiving in the woods has been a peaceful time of friends, family, and lots of fellowship!
Two tunes keep coming back into my mind, the lyrics humming their messages straight to my heart…as I reflect on those who we have missed over this holiday, those who have gone on ahead of me, those who’ve been lost in tragedies across our globe and those I have had the blessing of sharing this special day with.
Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” Anonymous
I am wishing for…and praying for more and more peace in our world. I believe many of you are hoping for the same thing.
After such a joyful, fun-filled, busy holiday, I knew that what I needed next was a few minutes of solitude.
I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.” Henry David Thoreau
My Mama always said to be sure to give your body enough time to catch up with your soul!
