I haven’t posted a blog in six months.
What’s that about?
So, I thought I could sit and draft 50 words or so and say I have.
So I typed some words. Then I deleted them. I typed some more – deleted them too.
Then I just stared at the blank screen and noticed a pop up message that said, “You haven’t written anything yet.”
That was helpful. No, I’m not being glib. It was helpful because it made me think.
What else have I not done?
–haven’t lost that 10 pounds I’ve talked about for yeeeeeeears.
–haven’t gone to Italy – I really want to go.
–haven’t … hmmmm, so many have nots that I’m embarrassed to list them.
Better to list my haves I think!
–have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior
–have loved and been loved by my husband and children
–have learned unconditional love from my dog
–have many wonderful family and friends
-have good health
–have made a difference in people’s lives
–have made mistakes – have asked for forgiveness – have given forgiveness – have forgiven myself
–have helped others in little ways because those add up to big ways
-have lived a happy life.
Ah, this is helpful because it makes me think. I’ve actually done all of the important things in life.
Aren’t I lucky.
As my friend Valye said, “No honey, you are blessed. God doesn’t do lucky.
