Now I will add my THANKFUL THURSDAY! After several minutes of pondering this question, I have come up with this, I am thankful for my senses, sight, smell, hearing, taste and touching. I am also thankful for health, my own and the health of my family.
I am thankful for the gift of compassion, (I know at times I have called it a curse), but I truly am thankful for it. I
had a wise friend tell me today that I need to learn how to be just a "listener" instead of trying to be everyones "fixer". This is one of the "habits" that I have had for so many years, I don't know how to stop "fixing". I know I can't fix the world but I certainly would like to go down in history as doing my best to fix what I can, (sometimes I just can't help it, I do things unconciously). I need to heed the advise though, and be able to discern when someone just needs a friend to listen, and the times when someone really needs my help.
