Sunday Solitude

A relatively peaceful day, today I don't want to ask for more, or think that life could be better or remind God of his to-do list for us, just gratitude and thanksgiving .........

1. Mom of Three described my blog as 'eclectic' and that means I write on diverse topics or experiences. I never really thought about it but it does succinctly describe the content. But on subject matter, it is mostly centred around  life and me. Does this then mean it is filled with variety? I am thankful that I have many interests to occupy me.

2. My parents are still around, and supportive without being judgemental of my current circumstances. They could have said 'I told you so'.  I thank God for them and their love.

3. I did not give up or go insane, I had strength to persevere. Thank you for my endurance.

4. I have a job, if not for that job, I would have been more hesitant and afraid to take the steps we needed. You have helped empower me.

5. I've been reminded by less fortunate parents, that God has blessed me with three beautiful children, I have 'nothing else to complain about but the normal mischief' that they would gladly have.  Thank you Lord for their well-being.

6. I have friends from my early school days, new friends from recent times, close friends who are even closer now and now I have blog friends to keep me company, at any time to stay in touch, to communicate with, thank you that I may never feel loneliness, they are my signposts.

7. I have two siblings with their own kids, who make time to to keep up family ties, I know they will stand by us should I ever need them more; thank you Lord that they do keep in touch, that they are there for me.

8. Thank you for technology that makes contact easy, and for enabling me the time, energy and health to participate positively in the life around me.

9. Thank you that there is light in my life.


  1. I am thankful for so much, mostly life - being given another chance to live free - want so much to be used to point others to Him, so they too can know peace and freedom. Have a great day. Sarah

  2. It's great that we still have much to be thankful for. Some people have nothing at all. Blessings to you and family.

    I would like to be where you have come after your trials so far, I understand what you mean about the system in your last post because I chickened out, my husband seems too powerful. I want to do it for my kid. Thank you for your advise. If you have 3 and you can do something then so can I.
    God help me.

  4. This is a great post which I take great notice of your thankfulness. Blessings dear one.

  5. Great list to be thankful for.

  6. I hope all of you have a list of items to be thankful for.
    Dear GHM I wish you well and courage.
    Thank you, BM

  7. I agree with you that technology has made contacts easy and also brought down the price of venting out to people who can listen...


Please leave me a note, thank you for stopping by, happy to have input and just know you hear me or even just to say hello.
