3 Gifts Flourishing…
“flourishing“: developing rapidly and successfully; thriving
1. Last week I took a much-needed break and went to the beach and just sat and stared at the ocean. I was inspired by the flourishing sights, sounds, and smells…I’m so thankful for this gift and the restoration it brought to my soul.
2. Well, for now, I’m thankful that the Charger’s are “flourishing. I hope they can keep this up!
3. And then there’s these guys…I’m thankful for their good health, and that their little bodies are growing and flourishing. It seems to me that they are indeed, the pure essence of flourishing.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a “Thankful Thursday” – not because I haven’t been “Thankful”, more because I just haven’t done it!
But I’m back, and these are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.
Have you looked for something to be thankful for today?
Go ahead, give it a try…I think you’ll be glad you did.

A very special lady…my sister, my friend!
Miss you, miss your smile. I can’t believe it has been 11 years since we last talked on the phone. It seems like it was just last week.
The time has gone by, and so much has changed, but my memory of you is still the same. You were my protector, my friend, and my confidant. We laughed and we cried together, and sometimes, we even laughed so hard, we cried.
Oh how I wish you were here, so that we could share these days together. The days of our empty nest, and amazing grandchildren. The days we talked about so much, and we were so looking forward to going through together.
Sharing in each others joy and crying on each others shoulder, talking and listening and learning from each other. And don’t forget…laughing too! Lots of laughing I’m sure!
But for reasons I will never understand this side of heaven, it just didn’t work out that way.
So on this day, as well as many others, I remember you and the very special person you were to me and to the world!
You will always be in my memory, and forever in my heart.
Thank you for your unconditional love to me. I love you!
