My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Thanksgiving Thoughts.

We have had some sad family events in the past few days.  While they do not effect this house directly, we grieve with my son and his wife. for a life ended tragically, and prematurely. in piece, and know that your children are in good hands.  Their grandparents, auntie and dad will look after them.

This recent event has made me realize that there are no certainties in life.  Your whole world can be turned upside down in the blink of an eye.  I have often heard the expressions..."We are blessed...We are fortunate...You deserve such and such."  I can't agree....  I really believe that a good day is just a lucky day.   After all..why should it be assumed that I am more deserving...more fortunate...more blessed..than the next guy.  It is only luck...a hand that you are dealt at that small moment in time.

I know for a certainty that I will hold my loved ones a little longer...forgive their little imperfections...and spread as much kindness as I can this weekend...and tomorrow,..and all the tomorrows that I have.

 Happy Thanksgiving everyone...  Have a good day....

  1. Happy Thanksgiving back to you. Yes, life is fragile and uncertain. We just don't usually get such graphic reminders of that fact. We will also have Thanksgiving next month, but it's always nice to remember to give thanks for today.
