Be Thankful and Ease Up on Yourself

I want to do so many things and I want to be good at all of them. Some days it helps just to do as much as you can do. Here are two Thanksgiving cards that I made this weekend. I'll mail one to my brother's house (where my parents will be) and I'll hand deliver the other to the house where we're having Thanksgiving.
Sure I would have liked to do more. But you know what? I've got a sinus infection and I'm run down and it's okay to do this much and just be at peace. Stress is major contributor to illness and stress is generated by our own choices and our own perceptions.
Today I will rest and take care of myself. Tomorrow I will work from home. Thursday I will feel stronger and I will go out for Thanksgiving with friends. But if I don't do any of that--I'm still grateful and happy that this is the life I lead and for all those who have chosen to share it with me. Blessings to one and all.

Hey Norma Anne!! Glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving (with Lynn I assume). We celebrated with 20...I cooked for two days!! Anyway, love the cards. The "other one" for your parents is out of this world!!! You should post it here too.
