I think it is good to spend time thinking about those we have loved. I try not to let the memories end on a sad note and try to emulate those things that caused me to like/love the person and root out in myself the things they did that may have caused others to dislike them.
Your husband and my husband were close on their birthdays weren't they? I have met two other men that share the same birthday as my husband. One recently married and we were to go to his wedding, but I didn't want to leave the dog with my sister in case she got news about Koty and was called to be with her son and his wife. The other is a friend on Facebook, but we have never met. He makes comical remarks to a friend of mine and I asked him to "Friend Me." It was her brother that passed away that I wrote about in today's blog. 2 days ago
I am glad that we got the 7" instead of the higher amounts of snow. I looked on Facebook and in 2014 we were expecting a snow storm on March 15th. A fruit grower said this storm probably ruined his peaches, but that apples and cherries should be alright. 10 days ago
The hymn, It Is Well, really made me think of how thankful I should be daily. Yes, tragic things happen, but I know the One that sustains me.
I enjoy reading what others are thankful for and I agree with you that having a thankful heart goes along with being contented. The old adage is, "We won't take anything with us when we die;" but we sure do accumulate a lot of stuff in this life. It all takes time to maintain and space to have a place to keep it. 10 days ago
