It's been a while................

Life has been full and rather stressful over the past 6 months.  I keep coming up for air and then floundering again, but this time feels  different.  I think there is change on the horizon and I welcome it.
Coming from me that is unusual as I normally don't like change, but this time I'm am ready and look forward to new paths and horizons.  My dearest mom continues to suffer from dementia and I am having to learn each day is new and different.  There is always change and nothing is constant.
I am so glad there is a season for everything and in everything there is a season. Even through hard times over the last 6 months I am grateful for the people and places in my life.

Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.
JOHN STEINBECK, Sweet Thursday
God reminds us to be thankful in all circumstances and that has been my goal. There are many things for us to be thankful for , but there are two that are the most important right now
I am so thankful for teatime with Mum when she still remembers us.  There are days when the confusion is so upsetting for her to deal with
I am thankful for walks in our local woods
Wishing you times of thankfulness

Note to self.......

Focusing on Christ puts everything into perspective
