Some are just thrilled it is still spinning
As many of you know I have been very ill. This is my first day I could get up and stay up. I am grateful. So are my plants. I am not myself yet and so I suspect this won’t be my longest blog. I want to that everyone for their prayers and kind thoughts. It has meant a lot to me. I appreciate the awards you have given me and I am very humbled. My day does not feel complete unless I have written. Thank you to all who have read my work and supported me for a year and a half now.
Thanksgiving is a holiday that only Americans celebrate. It started well in the past when this country still belongs to the Native Americans. Before we took all of their land from them as well as their culture and religion. We are not the only people to force indigenous peoples from their lands. I always think it is important that God/Goddess did not give us America. We stole it. People don’t realize how difficult life on reservations is. If you leave your reservation, you can never go back. That is horrible. We have guaranteed that they can’t make it in the mainstream of American life. If they do, they must pay for their success.
I am grateful for free speech, for the ability to live in this present moment. I am grateful that the world is not at war again. I am grateful for family and friends. I am grateful for my health improving and for the care my sister gave me. I am grateful for making it to sixty three and am hoping for twenty more years. I want to see all of the grands grown up and fulfilling their potential. So it isn’t Thanksgiving today. I was really out of it but I am glad to have an opportunity to express my thoughts today. I wish you all a wonderful time celebrating your own holidays, whichever that may be. Shalom and Blessed be.
