I was going to do an amazing post about the origins of the Fortune Cookie. I love Fortune Cookies, they are fun, offer a bit of wisdom, sometimes sarcasm, sometimes a smile, and lucky numbers too. Yep, it was going to be a light-hearted post all about how a Chinese immigrant from California created them.
However, when I got home I had to mow the lawns, and that took me right at an hour. After that I was hot and itchy from mowing so I took a hot shower, then I found I was tired. I ate dinner, and sat down to watch part of a television series I occasionally watch and, then thought I might write something profound or entertaining.
I am not writing profound or entertaining tonight. Tonight I am going to go meditate and prepare myself for the last day of the week. Tonight, I will be thankful that I am still here, that my kids are both home and healthy, and that we have a roof over our head and food to eat. Tonight, I will simply be thankful.
Perhaps tomorrow I will have more to say, more to research and something nice to share. Tonight I will pray for the people in my life and pause to be thankful for friends and the amazing people I have met along the way that I get to read and share with each day.
Peace be with you.
