I have been doing a lot of thinking lately... which is not unusual for me in between this busy life I am living. My son's school lost in the playoffs last Friday night so that means no more football games. Yeah! It means rest for us. It means less practices for him. It means less running, rushing and less use of gas even though gas prices came down here. Still praying they will come down more.
I noticed on Facebook that some of my friends were doing daily thankful posts which was nice. When I read them, I would have been 13 days behind if I were doing them. I didn't have a real urge to do those or try to catch up. That did not mean I wasn't thankful. I am thankful every day. On Veteran's day, I did post a thankfulness to my Grandaddy, father, husband and many uncles for serving our country. I only wished I could have posted pictures of them, but I have their pictures in my mind and heart always. Those thankful postings were just one less thing I had to do in my now busy life.
I had my ups and downs as always. I had things happen I only discussed in emails to my closest friends. As always I was thankful for all my friends who are always there for me; who have my back; who let me vent; who pray for me. Don't know what I would do without them. Don't want to find out. I have been disappointed a lot lately but it doesn't get me down.
I have noticed my picture taking has been few and far between, but I am not worried. I am just more selective about my picture taking. I still create small art whenever I can. I still try to brighten everyone's day with good emails and artistic ideas. Like I need more! LOL I have done a few good deeds and Random Acts of Kindness. I have developed my own style; my own signature art now. I like it. It makes me happy and that is all that matters.
Sometimes I complain a lot althougth I try not to complain much. Who wants to hear a constant complainer? Lately I have been thinking about the complications in my life. Nothing major. I always help everyone else but who helps me? Maybe I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself. I am entitled. I thought about these complications... like hHow my son makes me late. How he forgot his instrument when we are at the car this morning! Where is his brain? Then I thought , if I did not have all these complications, I probably wouldn't have a life at all. I would be all alone. So I will gladly accept all my of my man complications in life - thank you very much!
I was disappointed today but I didn't let it get me down. Instead I created my own art, displayed it so I can look at it. My art made me happy. I made it myself. I made art. I made my own happiness.
What are you thankful for this week? Care to share? Then please join us at the following...
Now I had not read Laurie's post before composing mine but mine is sort of similar to her's. Love it when that happens as if it was meant to be.
Ps. I tried to leave a comment on Laurie's blog but it wouldn't let me!
