How many of you, like me and so many others, lament the news and headlines to such an extent that we find it harder and harder to even listen to the news or read the newspaper?
I keep waiting for all the conflicts, lies, distortions, terrorist groups, and chaos to “settle down.” For a day or two…I think it is and then it seems like someone or thing…purposefully stirs the pot again and I end up slumping in my recliner… shaking my head in frustration.
Will this climate of unrest and distrust of each other ever end?
If you have had a similar conversation with friends lately…you are not alone…in fact most Americans are desperately praying for a way to stay positive in lieu of all the craziness…so they can be there for family, children, grandchildren who are looking to them for reassurance.
God Wink. Yesterday was a beautiful day….I went to Mt. Pleasant to see Tommy and Kaitlyn’s on-going renovations… after being out of their home for almost a year to the day. (Their house burned on Friday, March 13, 2020) They physically returned last week.
I brought some house-warming gifts and met some of their “crew” (comprised of of work colleagues) all helping to put the pieces back together again.
Kaitlyn’s parents arrived (Butch and Susan Swicegood) and we took two of the little dogs, Pip and Atticus, to eat outside for brunch at the Post in the Old Village. We got a long wooden table in a warm lovely spot outside and had a delicious brunch.
By the time I got home I was pretty exhausted and still hadn’t written the post…and then a God Wink. Anne sent me a message she had been sent by a friend… from Andy Stanley, Charles Stanley’s son.
His voice became everyone’s voice…exactly where most of us are today and a wonderful solution for our unhappy quandary!
Don’t you LOVE THIS? No more pity parties for my worries…I am in charge of my own destiny with God leading me…so I can choose each day to write my own daily headline of gratitude.
HAPPY REUNION ONE YEAR AFTER LOSING HOME TO FIRE ON A FRIDAY THE 13TH LAST MARCH…TODAY CELEBRATING WITH LOVING FAMILY!
BOO’S GARDEN IS ALREADY BLOOMING FROM LOVE LEFT BEHIND BY FRIENDS AND FAMILY… WHO ALL ADDED BEAUTY TO HER GARDEN!
So until tomorrow…
Now it is your turn….thank of a personal headline you would like to share with the world…to bring a smile to all who read it.
“Today is my favorite day” Winnie the Pooh
It’s that time again…for my adorable gardening toadie frog to leap back in the spring wreath for another season!
