SoCS 11/19/22- Giving Thanks

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “morning.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Each morning I take a few minutes to be grateful. I read and consider a few prayers based on random scripture quotes. This is the one thing (other than feeding my dogs) that I never neglect. Every other duty, even the ones that ‘spring up’, must pass through my sense of priority screen. This is why I am posting this today. I don’t know what’s on my agenda tomorrow until tomorrow gets here.
I don’t do schedules. Yes, there are meals to be made and pills to be given and taken, but I am a ‘take it as it happens’ person.
That attitude is the foundation for my tendency to procrastinate.
I have to admit, I get a ‘rush’ out of the challenge to accomplishing tasks ‘last minute’. There’s a sense of VICTORY in defeating an imposed timing on my own terms. Then there’s the part of me that will drop everything if my family or friends need help. It’s the highest level in my priorities scale. Floors can be vacuumed, dishes washed, and blog posts can be written, anytime.
Part of my thankfulness morning ritual includes stepping outside to get in-touch with Nature. It will be briefer as the weather gets colder but it serves a powerful purpose in how my whole day goes.
This upcoming week will hold lots of extra projects and duties in preparation for Thanksgiving. I’m looking forward to the challenge. If I don’t post much -or at all- next week, know that I’m happily busy with my own priorities… and blessed to have them.
Hope everyone has a lovely week!

      1. Thank you, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here in the UK but we do have a harvest festival for children at school and at Church. That said I wish you and yours a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING 💜💜

  1. I too begin my mornings praying. There is so much to be grateful for. Problems are part of life. We realise our strength when we learn to face and overcome the difficulties in life. In a way we should be grateful for the problems too 🙂

  2. Thanksgiving is one of the things I wish we copied/pasted from the US .
    Regardless of not celebrating it here, I wish you Susan, the best Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
    Indeed, every day we wake up we have a lot to be thankful for and remind ourselves not to take for granted.

    (Post a pic of your famous pie afterwards🙂)

Tell me something good...
