Yes, last night was a bust --just too tired.
On this rainy Sunday, I offer you my list of Thanksgiving.
I am thankful tonight for:
1. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and especially the blessing and grace to have a TLM nearby, and that I am able to make it there now.
2. The Sacrament of Reconciliation. The grace to have that place to physically run to and spill out my worst moments and receive grace and love in return. And learn humility.
3. The lessons God teaches me personally, always with love.
4. The sound of my kids laughing.
5. All the comforts I have, though I know better than to cling to them, I appreciate them nonetheless.
6. Rainy Sunday nights.
7. A goofy kitty to love, and who does his job well. No mice!
8. A good husband.
9. The grace to not feel as though I am too old to have dreams and think about what I want to be when I grow up.
10. Good books.
11. A nice cup of hot tea, brought to me by the Good Husband.
12. Having my kids, their respective other halves and my grandson to love.
13. Music, gardening and cooking
14. Dear friends.
