Today I am thankful that we have sunshine and blue skies again. I am thankful that tomorrow is supposed to get up to the high 50's. I am thankful for seasons of life~yesterday I mentioned one of my all time favorite songs; that was the season in my late teens and early twenties. I was into everything that was Folk. I was a folk dancer, taught some P.E. classes at my high school and loved it. Every day at lunch, a group would gather to dance and several times during the week I would attend different groups or lessons-Friday night was dancing at Stanford University. I think when I started working and my girlfriends that I danced with moved away, I stopped going. A big mistake on my part. One of those friends still dances and goes to Hungary several times a year to spend a month dancing. The other area I loved was music and I was all about Folk Music and playing guitar. I met Joan Baez in high school and even corresponded with her for a short while. My best friend and I would play at Open Mike at a coffee shop; lest you think I was good-I wasn't, but she carried us.
I loved John Denver!! I saw him in concert once; his music was so incredible. I think that is when I decided I would love to live in Colorado. It only took me 40 years to move here, but here we are.
I gave up my guitar when I had my girls-it was just one of those things that went by the wayside.
I know I could take it up again, but now that I have grandsons that play I listen to them. That was the season of adventure and experiencing new things. I am so thankful for that time and for my best friend then that kept me out of some serious trouble. I am thankful for angels watching over me during those years of wandering. I am thankful for Redemption. I am so thankful for the man of my dreams that I finally snagged after years of knowing him-my hubby was another life saver for me.
I am thankful that I now call Colorado my home, with all it's beauty and the continual change of weather. There is a saying(I'm sure in most snowy areas)that if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change-this is so true of our lovely state. I am so thankful for my daughters; God knew I needed them before I ever did. They are best friends and confidants; my strength and the reminder of all that is good. I am also overwhelmed by the love of God to give me 11 daily reminders of His love in my grands. The joy they bring is indescribable.
I am thankful-o.k. maybe not as much as I should be, that I got my CTscans scheduled for next Tuesday. I am thankful that within a month the surgery should be a thing of the past and I should be on the road to healing.
I am thankful for the wonderful friends here in Co.-Kam, my bff, all the gals from church and bible study and of course my family and friends back in Ca. I am so thankful for all the friends, like you, that I've made from blogging. Your support, love, friendship and prayers have meant so much to me. Life is good and I for one plan on living a long time, enjoying every day!
Whatever you have going on today, remember to give thanks!
Joy to you~
