Here we are at the end of Thanksgiving Day! Hope that all of you had a great day with family and friends. We ate chili dogs with my brother at noon and then Darian went to eat Thanksgiving dinner with his girlfriend's family. Harley and I spent the rest of the day watching TV and napping. Then we drove down main street to see the Christmas lights downtown. And found Spangles open so we stopped and brought home burgers and fries.
Looking forward to cooking Thanksgiving on Saturday....Now for my November gratitude post....
Today's prompt on my November Gratitude challenge is: letting go! I don't know if I am grateful for letting go, but it is something that we all need to do at one time or another. Isn't it?
People come into our lives; and people go. Sometimes it is good to let go. There are people in our lives that we are hanging onto for the simple reason that we fear letting go will somehow change our lives. It is true. It will change your life. But if that person, or persons, are no longer bringing you joy and contentment it might be time to let go. If they are just bringing you sadness and resentment, it might be time to let go.
I have had to let go of numerous people in my lifetime. For a variety of reasons. That doesn't mean that I no longer think of them. Or have good memories. Or, even, love them. It just means that I have to let go and find someone who will support me, love me, and add something to my life. And cherish the memories. It is the "good" kind of letting go.
I will be grateful if I can learn to let go of what I need to let go of! But I will always hold the memories close!!
Sounds like it was a nice day, Paula. Glad you got the time together with famliy that you did and the extra time alone with Harley :) So true about letting people go. I know I've had to let people go with the moves that we have done; they are in my heart though they might not be part of my life any more.ReplyDelete
Thank you Betty. I love how you are almost always the first one to respond. I look forward to seeing you before I head to bed each night. I haven't had to move a lot in my lifetime but I have had people move away from me and it is hard sometimes to keep relationships going over long distances. But of course we now have the computer which makes it so much easier. Sweet dreams my friend!Delete

When I first read this early yesterday morning, I got goose-bumps -- on account I'd finally arrived 'round 2 or 3AM at my 'word' for 2015. I don't suppose it's against the rules to share(?) it's "Release."
God willing ....
That is a great word, Myra. I haven't yet chosen mine. Our celebration was nice.Delete
