I know I've not been here; I really wanted to be
It wasn't my choice, I tell you; it's been a tough week
On Tuesday, Weds. & Thursday, we worked so hard, it's true
I would rather, my friends, to have been here with you.
Old grumpy back was hurting, slowing down my chores,
Then I pulled a groin muscle, hurting so much more
I feel bad, I haven't written - my family must come first
They needed me to help them, even though work hurts.
Slept half the day yesterday, I couldn't walk a bit
I gave in to pain control - I was mostly out of it :(
Today the girls were out giving invitations to the Harvest Festival
Where kids & families to church on halloween, it's the best of all.
And now as late eve comes upon me and the girls are going to bed.
I've come back to my friends in J-Land, a poem inside my head.
I'm glad that halloween will be passing soon. Our family doesn't celebrate it. I'm not criticizing those that do, but guys, Thanksgiving is coming!
November is such a special month for me. It's the time when we start to think about what we are grateful for. We make lists. We think back over the year and list the thankful times. By the time we got to Thanksgiving day, we would have looong lists to share, I still do it as does Rob and the girls. Last year, I asked my friends in J-Land to do it with me. I asked you to think of something you were grateful for each day. I can't believe how many of you joined in. I'm going to do it again this year, but not daily. I'm hoping that starting NOVEMBER 1st, you will join me on Sundays and Wednesdays to post a thankful entry and put your link in my comments section.
Then the day before Thanksgiving, I'll send a list back to you to share with your family or friends.
Many blessings to you, my friends,
