|A beautiful day|
Thank you God, so much for other total strangers who were willing to give a helping hand. Even if that meant pounding on our door at 5:00 in the morning to tell us that our cow was standing on the road. And that stranger waited until we had things under control. I'm also thankful that my husband wasn't at work because, quite frankly, the cow makes me a bit nervous. And I am so thankful that none of the other animals escaped.
Thank you God for good friends who are going through a rough time right now to whom I've not been overly friendly. I'm thankful that they are able to overlook my social anxiety and tendencies to hermitism (new word!) and are still willing to accept me as a friend. I pray that you give them all the strength they need to get through this time and to know the pain subsides after awhile. Even though I can't say it, I love them. And they have always been good to my family.
I was so going to put a different twist on this post. But I've found that when I write it, I am most sincere in my thankfulness. This morning when I dragged myself in after spending an hour mending a fence, I wondered what I had done to deserve this start to the New Year. But in the few minutes it has taken me to write about it, I realize how blessed we are. How truly, truly blessed. And I pray that everyone is cared for in the way that we have been the past two days.
