That title may need a little more explanation. Tuesdays are my day off. I try to get all my shopping, errands, & appointments done on Tuesdays. Plus I get in a little craft time. So they’re often busier than the days I work! But I enjoy the change of pace & being home. Today I did some shopping (if you keep up with my Facebooks status you may have read about some of the things I bought), came home, did some crafting, now I’m making soup for a soup diet that Jackie and I are on.
While I was alone in my craft room I did some thinking – no tv, no music, nobody else at home, just nice & quiet. I was thankful for my day off & for having a job that is flexible & I that I don’t have to work full-time. I’m thankful that even though I may sometimes complain about money, we have ALWAYS had plenty. Even when we didn’t have ANY. God met our needs. I complained last week about Margie’s social security being cut. Today, instead of complaining, I was thankful that we live in a country that she still gets something. I was thankful that when we’ve had to cut back on our spending — even food — we’ve never gone hungry. I was thankful for the shopping opportunities that are available to me. I bought a shirt at a thrift store today. Most people don’t even know that I shop mostly at thrift stores! I used to remind people that there are people worse off than us all around the world. Today we all know people who have lost jobs & homes. They’re right here… not around the world. We are still VERY blessed.
