30 Days of Thankful - Day 2

I am thankful that I have reached the age of being comfortable in my own skin and have no desire to try to be like someone else or meet other people's expectations of me.  What a wonderful sense of freedom that is!  I am far from perfect and don't expect to ever attain that, but I keep working on being the kind of person I want to be... more kind, more patient, more positive, more tolerant, more helpful, more loving, and above all, more grateful for all the blessings I have!

    1. Oh, Papa Bear most clearly knows I'm not Joe, neither of us are! Love is about overlooking the faults and focusing on all the wonderful things you adore your partner for. Besides, if I was perfect I would have to wear a halo, and I have a big head, so it would most likely be tight and very uncomfortable! :-)

    1. Why thank you, Ms. Gail! I truly loved our visit too. How I wish we lived just down the road from you. I suspect you would find Papa Bear roaming your hills on our Ranger if we did! :-)

    1. Thank you Mimi, I learned a long time ago that striving to have more "stuff" was such an empty way to live, no matter how many things you have you always find yourself wanting more, and they rarely make you happy for long. Now I strive to improve my life in ways that will not only make me happy, but will hopefully bless others too... like the ones who have to live with me! :-)

    1. Indeed it is Beth! It's taken me a long time to reach the place where I like who I am and what I am about, it is a real gift, a Grace of God thing, and I am truly blessed by it!
