Hi, as I sit here reflecting on my weekend- I have so much to be thankful for. You may hear me say many times, “I really do not want to wish my life away- however, I live for the weekends”. Each morning my feet hit the floor, I know it’s going to be a good day. Having had the joy of chemo and glows several years ago, it gave me a new perspective on life. It will be several years before I retire. Until then, I go to work (a four letter word) each week Monday through Friday. That’s not bad, just something one must do. Now the weekends are different. How the time is spent is of my choosing- a huge difference. This is why I love to live for the weekend!
Friday as I was driving home there was still daylight. I was reminiscing of the times Kevin would be burning the grass around the house. So as I was pulling into our drive, I had a delightful surprise!
No specific reason I enjoy this time of the year. Maybe it’s the sound of the burning crackling grass and the smell along with longer daylight hours that brings such great pleasure. Once the car was parked, I joined Kevin at the fence to watch and listen. Once the fire burnt out, I turned to look up the drive to the barn and the view was simply beautiful. The weekend was off to an excellent beginning.
These past several months, Kevin has been working evenings and weekends. It’s been awhile since we have had a breakfast date. I was thankful to enjoy one this weekend. I highly recommend the Retro Diner. The pancake breakfast was fabulous!
What are you thankful for?
