Thankful in many ways :-)

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Since this is Novemember, thanksgiving is coming up.... I wounder sometimes if people are truly thankful despite the struggles in life. All i hear on tv a lot of negativity and blame etc. emoticon

Im aware that people today have various struggles like ( loss of job or place to stay) no companions or friends ( loss of husband wife or child etc) and (( hugs to you all going through diffuecult times.)) emoticon

there were some points in my life that had some lonely heartbreaking times when i felt alone... patricaturily when i lost my sister many years ago. I was very angry and heartbroken didnt trust the world and the lord so much somewhat isolated at the time. When was life gonna get better??? emoticon

Solwly i went back to college and do my creativity. Long slow journey to Healing....

I realized that there are things i do that i am thankful for... Ablity to adapt to the changes and challenges in life ( i grew up with hearing loss and cerbral plasy ( my legs) ii had to work harder to "keep up"" like my borther sisters, and they encouraged me to keep going. emoticon emoticon

I am also greatful for techology improvements to have text e mail to my friends far away, join groups in SP to makes some friends, make new goals in my life, and supoort others where i can. emoticon
Ia also greatful that i can do my creatve talents despite my deafness ( drawing aspiring author blogger??? writing painting ) to show people that i can do things with my life.. ( greatful tears as i write this emoticon emoticon

Im thankful that i have rediscovered life again " here comes the sun" and awareness of today, making friends to build a good support system , appericate life more in many way s music art photography??? Possible thing to do.. emoticon

I have a new mission ( still exploring on this---Sprituality) the spriutality way healing journey helps me be " connect the lord and other people whom i miss.. Still in my heart " torrow is my sister birthday- i miss her . Help others where i can, teach others of my life lesson and others can share thier lessons..... emoticon

We are here to supoort one another to make this world a better place ( john denver) emoticon

What are you greatful for???? emoticon

Thank you for reading my blog and friendship ... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sending Love from my heart to yours ...... Dolly

    I'm grateful that you got to know your sister. I never had a chance to meet ER, as she was born still (no breath). And I am grateful for spiritual awareness and belief in a great resurrection when we will see all of our loved ones alive again!!

    It's good to pause and give thanks any time of the year, not just on Thanksgiving Day Official Holiday -which tends to be disrespected by some as only "Turkey Day" or "The Day Before Black Friday"...

    Love this post Katwell. I am grateful for family (even when they judge me or are negative, though I often need time alone to do art, spiritual things, read or just be by myself to balance that reality out).

    So sorry for your loss of your sister. Much blessings and continued healing to you. emoticon emoticon

    Beautiful Dolly...you are such a ray of shining hope! I am SO very blessed to have you as a sparkling friend. Yes, ART above ALL heals. I like to think of it as the soul's chance to shine and share that special talent with the world. That in and of itself if VERY healing. I met a little lady the other day in our consignment gallery that impressed me so much I wrote a blog about her. I think it is exactly what you are talking about in this blog. Maybe you might enjoy it...hugs to you and keep on shining dear friend of mine! emoticon emoticon

    Beautiful blog, Dolly!

    Your sister will always be an important part of who you are. I'm sure you are a source of inspiration to those who know you. It would have been easy for you, with your physical and emotional challenges, to give up. The good news! You kept moving forward, learning, growing, creating and sharing. That makes you a very special person.

    My husband has cerebral palsy and has always had to work to "keep up" with others around him without that physical problem. Like you, he hasn't used his physical challenges as an excuse; he's forged ahead and had a career helping others.

    Thanks for sharing so much of yourself!

You are right in that we all need each other, support each other, making life wonderful even with problems. Keep up the great work and not just celebrate your sister's life but your own. emoticon
