Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful for much. Yesterday would have been my mothers 58th birthday. She has been gone nearly 20 years from my life and yesterday I was halfway through the morning before I remembered what day it was. I am grateful that no matter how greivious a wound it heals and in a way that makes memories grand and not painful. I do so wish I had known her as an adult but I don't burst into tears or lose my composure on these days anymore and for that I am grateful.
Today I intend to go for a big ride in the woods with some friends. Green leaves, chirping birds and more await me...so I can't help but be grateful. Maybe I will have some great story to tell when I return or maybe I shall keep it for myself! Either way, I hope your day goes well.

I can't even begin to imagine the loss of a mother..mine is 79 and is still a vibrant woman. Your mother would be proud of the woman she raised and thriled that her memory lives on through you...I'm thankful to have you as a friend. Have a great week.
