I've got some deep thoughts moving around...I'm not sure they're ever going to make it to the blog; I just don't know that I could articulate it well enough.. In the meantime, this week's Hodgepodge meme is looking for happy, and I think it would be a good thing to share some.

1. Let's all think happy thoughts...share one of yours here.
Thanksgiving is next week. NEXT WEEK. Aside from the panic of 'not ready!!! not ready!!' I'm actually happy about it. It's my favorite holiday, even though it's a lot of work. We have much to be thankful for...however you slice it.
My favorite refuge is a quiet spot...and I'm not particular where, just so it's quiet...with my Bible, my journal and a good pen. Some reading/listening/journaling never fails to change my perspective.
An obscure worship song by Morning Star... 'Fly Me Like the Wind' ...on a live recording from a conference about, oh, 18 - 20 years ago? It's one of my walking songs...
5. Wednesday is National Fast Food Day. Should that be a thing? Apparently it is, so tell us what's the last 'fast food' you consumed? If you were putting together your own version of a 'happy meal' what would you include?
Honestly, National Fast Food Day should be the day before Thanksgiving. A national day of fasting would certainly make us better appreciate the feast.
Oy. The sewing blog...because I like sharing the creative side with like minded folks. And it's been an amazing record of life. Something like 200 folks follow that blog...which is pretty small potatoes in the blogging world, but it's is being read. This blog...has about a dozen followers, maybe, and I blog here because I like recording life for myself to read down the road, if nothing else. I like the discipline....even though I'm not very disciplined. And it does give me some structure for Bible study from time to time. Mostly, I love the fact that blogging in general has connected me to folks I would never, ever had gotten to meet otherwise.
-- 1) I'm grateful for all the men and women who stand guard in our military, police forces, firefighters, first responders...all the folks who risk themselves to keep the rest of us safe.
My BFF from high school will be celebrating her dad's 90th birthday this weekend. We were invited, but it's 450 miles away and it just wasn't going to work. She suggested sending a card with a joke. So I dug up a terrible joke...and I will share it with you.
