Phriends – Copycat

It is the week of Thanksgiving. A good time to dwell on the aspects of life that fill your heart with gratitude. Always, first in my thoughts of gratitude is the indwelling of God’s Spirit within me, and the gift of salvation he has given me. Another gift I am grateful for is my family and home. I also want to express gratitude to the people who visit my blog and add another aspect of goodness to my life. One of these is my friend Susie, writer of the blog Susieshy45.

I started the day having a good conversation with Susie through the blog comment section, and then visited her blog, and found inspiration for today’s post by being a bit of a copycat. Susie wrote today of nurturing a stray cat, and it reminded me of a sweet little stray I met in Jamaica. The adorable little kitten lived in a grated window well near our room. It fills my heart with thanksgiving to know that all around the world there are people like Susie, who have good hearts, and who, through blogging, I have met and consider my friend.

I love this comment Tulani left on Wednesday’s post. It is beautiful, and I want to share it with everyone.

’tis a new year and new hopes abound,
the old is past so the new can be found.
We share our thoughts, our hopes & our dreams,
and put away our worries and our schemes.
We look forward into this new year
and into each new day,
For the light of GOD shows us the way.
Happy New Year my dear friend,
may the blessings of GOD forever shine down upon you.
