Thankful? Yep. I'm thankful for another Vinegar Friday. I'm thankful for another day.
Do you have a valid point to make? I can't make it out through all the bickering, but I'd like to hear it. I'd like to discuss our differing points of view. Maybe I'll learn something ... and maybe you will, too. Wouldn't that be nice?
The Supreme Court ruling isn't the only thing consuming the news right now. Record high temperatures across the country are descending upon us. But I'm pretty sure most of us can bear it.
Then, there's Colorado. Dear Jesus ... there's Colorado. It was fire that launched me into widowhood in 1989. To me, fire is a frightening thing. Seeing the footage of the raging fires in Colorado is breathtaking ... in a bad kind of way. I am praying for the people, and animals, of Colorado.
On the flip side, let's talk rain. Lots of it. I am feeling the pain for those in Florida who are cleaning up from the terrible flooding there.
And let's not forget the collapsing mall in Ontario. I saw the fiance of one of the victims sobbing on camera. My heart broke for him.
Like I said, it's been a rough week. So, instead of focusing on vinegar today, I'd like you to focus on gratitude. Look around you and find something to be grateful for. It's there. And while you're concentrating on thankfulness, remember to pray for those who are suffering right now. There is always someone worse off than you.
Keeping it green with vinegar, and real with gratitude,
(and yes, I will be using vinegar today ... probably in a bunch of different ways)
