NOVEMBER IS ALL ABOUT THANKFULNESS
Thirty days of Thankfulness
I had every intention of posting every day during November, to list one thing that I am thankful for, and I am 5 days behind already. 😶 But, no matter. 😊
November 1st was Sunday. Roger and I went out for a late breakfast after church and my pastor and a friend showed up at the same restaurant, joined us at our table. I am thankful for the friendship and fellowship we have with our busy pastor.
November 2nd. I started a deep clean in our bedroom. I am thankful for the motivation to start this long overdue project.
We used to have a cleaning lady, she worked for Roger and his late wife for 5 years and Roger and I for almost 15 years. Since she left about a year ago, basic cleaning happens but nothing nitty gritty. I procrastinate until I can't stand it any longer and then feel overwhelmed.
I have been reading a very inspirational blog, "What's new at my house" about habits. I need to develop a habit of daily cleaning so that I don't become overwhelmed with the fact that the whole house could use a good going over.😓It's just a matter of sticking with it until it becomes a habit! Easy, right? Of course, I already have a habit: why do today what I can put off until tomorrow.😌
Your beliefs become your thoughts.
Your thoughts become your words.
Your words become your actions.
Your actions become your habits.
Your habits become your values
And your values become your destiny.
November 3rd. Our cold temperatures flip flopped and we enjoyed lovely mild weather! Thankful for leaves still attached to trees.
November 4th. Mild weather prevailed as I loaded my car with about 100 books from bookcases in our bedrooms headed for a charity shop. The relief I felt of finally letting go of books I brought with me when I married Roger 15 years ago was immense. I am so thankful for my Kindle!
November 5th. Roger is still working so I will remain in Bethlehem awhile longer. I am so grateful to my mother's carer for taking such good care of her while I have been at home these past 5 months.😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇😇
November 6th. Today is another lovely day! I hope to get my bedroom project finished up today. I had a sleepless night due to chocolate bingeing on leftover Halloween candy, and a bit of anxiety over election results. As a conservative I can only wonder what the future will be like for our nation. But God is in control and I hold on to that anchor. So thankful for my faith.
