* Three Things Thursday

Thanks to Nerd in the Brain for her encouragement to share three things of happy.  If you haven’t been to her blog today, don’t delay!  She has an awesome fall challenge that will encourage you to get out and have some fun!

NitB says:  *three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

Here I go….

My first thing of happy is feeling better.  I’ve been sick with one thing after another since the end of July.  When I have felt sorry for myself, I always think of folks with terminal illnesses or those who live with dreadful health conditions.  For me, there has been a light at the end of the tunnel, but sometimes I have focused on the dark walls instead.  My stats do look good: I have gone from consuming 6 boxes of tissue in a week to only part of one.  Yea!

My second thing of happy is the wonderful music which resonates with my deepest feelings of joy.  Mandisa sings “Overcomer” with a heart of faith.  Her video includes the struggles faced by Robin Roberts and Gabrielle Giffords.  SIng along! 

Last but not least….  My third “thing” of happy is my indomitable sister, a true hero.  She has fought an amazing battle for some dear ones, continues to fight for their future, and is a true example of an overcomer.  Her heart is brave and merciful.  Love my baby sister!Childhood_0010
