Be Thankful Daily-Not Just In November

Tis the season to be thankful. I try to look around daily and give my gratitude to whom it belongs. Being blessed, with little things, as well as the big, daily, not just in November. We get blessings daily, why shouldn’t we be thankful daily?

A few years ago, I didn’t have a lot of “stuff” to be thankful for, so I learned to look around and search for what I already had to be thankful for. Daily.  This became a ritual for me and thankfully, still is today. I had a lot, even though we were going through a storm. I just had to open my eyes. I began praying prayers of thanksgiving throughout the day. We always have good in our life, even if we have gale-force winds causing damage to our otherwise happy lives. We have blessings and things to be thankful for. Always. It is up to us to open our eyes, see the things, and be grateful.

Find Yourself-Discovering Your True Self At Any Age

Life is a discovery at any age. Life is a journey. We choose the paths we take and sometimes the path chooses us. At any age, at any stage, you can find a new path. Take a new road. Find yourself.

Doing so is scary. It takes bravery to find yourself, find your true self. It is easier to keep walking on the same path you are comfortable traveling on.

World Psoriatic Arthritis Day-How PsA Makes Me Feel

Psoriatic Arthritis came into my life last year, but actually long before.  October 29 is World Psoriatic Arthritis Day. I want to share with you what PsA is and how it makes me feel.

I want to get real with Psoriatic Arthritis.  I don’t want sympathy because there are far worse things I could have. And, I am thankful for my health. But, I want to get real and show you, with my words, what is like to have this disease.

Fall leaves-The Wardrobe Of Autumn

I have a love for trees that change color. Fall leaves. They are healthy and green in the summer and then when fall comes, autumn’s crisp air, they magically change from green to deep golden colors. And then one fall blustery day, they dance gracefully to the ground.

Fall leaves. They look as beautiful on the ground as they do in the trees. They blanket the ground like a handmade quilt.

My Perfect Fall Morning

My perfect fall morning involves sleeping in, cool weather, coffee and my pups. I include my husband, on these perfect fall mornings, on the weekend.

 

I love sitting outside, watching my weenie dogs and my lab run around the yard on a crisp morning. They always have a lot of energy, without the summer heat. The squirrels busy gathering acorns and pecans and my pups are busy chasing them.
