I guess you and the big guy know that I am turning 60 tomorrow!!!! You heard me 60 big ones, as in getting closer to that senior citizen discount I teased you about. They are surely going to ask me if I want the extra discount at TJ MAX and such. You know I am not a big birthday
girl but there seems to be this special sense of this 60 number.
I think the specia
l, peaceful feeling is the knowing that I don’t have to know ALL anymore. It is the knowing that what is so important are not the things you think that they are. I also have decided to turn the day into a day of fundraising ( ha I know that is a big surprise to you). WE are going to raise 60,000 for Food4kidz!!!! I think the big guy is kicking it up and notch and helping us.
I FOUND THE GREATEST JOY TODAY WHILE I WAS DOIGN THE SIMPLE TASK OF PUMPING GAS IN MY CAR. YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER HOW AT ONE TIME I WAS NOT WILD ABOUT PUMPING GAS BUT THEN I DECIDED TO TURN THE PUMP INTO A PRAISE EVENT. I TOOK ALL THAT TIME THAT I WAS PUMPING GAS AND NAMED ALL MY BLESSINGS ONE BY ONE.
Today as I was pumping gas, and the breeze was gently blowing. I started thinking a little about you and I smiled and I remembered when you reminded me that I could now afford to put more than 5 bucks of gas in my car. It did take me a long time to remember that. I also thought of how grateful I was that I was standing on two feet and I had arms to pump the gas, I had eyes to see the numbers, I had money to pay for it, I was heading home to my healthy kids, and I was getting in a comfortable car that was not going to break down. I was grateful because I looked up and said, God I am turning 60 and you have given me the sweetest life. What can I do to thank you????
I hope I can thank him by giving back my life in full measure of what has been given to me, pressed down and overflowing. I am thankful oh so thankful for all those sweet people that are coming together this Friday to help us love our community!!!!
I do wish you were here but I will not stay on that topic long because I was blessed to have you and now you are resting with Jesus and your place is not my place anymore, but the love you gave me and our family will always be my happy place and my peaceful place.
all my love and adoration,
Karunning as usual
ps. I am really enjoying that BIG ASS TV you got me last year for my birthday. I bet you bragged to your friends that your wife wanted a big TV for her birthday. Win for both of us. We were good at that win for both of us, weren’t we?
pss. I guess you also see that I finally started myhappyasslife.com blog. I know you would love it and encourage me to write and just celebrate with me.
