Thankful Thursdays

Today I awoke with the same responsibilities as yesterday and the day before. Doesn’t matter who resides now at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, or who will reside there later, I still have to get up and deal with life the best I can. Because after an election, life goes on, one way or another. Today I continue to love those in my family who didn’t vote my way, and I continue to respect those in my circle of friends who didn’t vote my way. Because relationships are essential, and we already have enough hardships to endure to let politics get the best of us.

Friends and family, we have done our part. Now, In God We Trust, no? May we always do what we deem is right, and leave the rest to Him. Let’s continue to pray for this great nation of ours. For peace, health and prosperity. In four years, we’ll do it all over again. For now, more importantly, let’s survive Covid and get through 2020.

For those who put love and respect above politics, today and always, I am grateful. What are you thankful for today?

Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.

“I’ve dropped my pebble in the ocean, and hopefully; throughout the course of the day; millions of others will drop theirs in too. No single one of us knows which pebble causes the wave to crest, but each of us, quite rightly, believes that it might be ours; an act of faith.”
-Michael J. Fox

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”
–Thomas Merton

  1. Your thoughts always give me so much. It feels like I have the luxurious Time to think and consider. Here is my question to anyone (you, or perhaps a friend who may have an idea of what I speak): How do we accept that, although we have forgiven someone, that we may never be able to tell them? I am having a hard time with that one. I don’t know, but I could use some reflection and/or input! Perhaps you have a “chapter” regarding that sort of thing. Much love to you and yours, Connissima!!

Share your thoughts :)
