Caring for Myself Body and Soul 19:
saying thank you

Yesterday I felt compelled to write a little about the Martha Stewart interview that's been in the news this week.  After I wrote that post, I read some other posts along the same lines.  The very best one written by my friend Emily Freeman, and I want to share with you something that Emily posted.  Take a minute to watch this one.  You'll be blessed.

Mr. Rogers was my favorite TV star when I was a little girl.  I watched his show faithfully, loving everything about his neighborhood.   As I watch this video, I think I had pretty good judgment back then.

In his kind and gracious way, Mr. Rogers reminds me that so many people have contributed to my well-being over the years.  So today I'm caring for myself by making a point of thanking them for their love and thanking God for blessing me with their presence in my life.

I'll start here.  I thank you, my dear blogging community.  You make a difference in my life, in more ways than I can count.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.
Philippians 1:3

For whom are you thankful?

  1. I love what Emily says, (as usual:)! and have always loved Mr. Rogers as well!

    Did you not find the article I referred to as accurate? I'm rather confused about the whole thing and whether or not the videos were highly edited. A few splices, (I think I just dated myself:) I mean cuts and then the putting together of words that seem to flow happen all the time.

    I just want to be certain that the facts are as they should be before we react to them, but I am having a difficult time sorting through them! In the meantime, I think I will just stick to thinking about Mr. Rogers and enjoy this beautiful, fleeting day we are experiencing in the North!

    Isn't Autumn weather incredible?!

    Have a blessed weekend, Richella!

  2. I'm thankful too, Rachella, for good blog friends that encourage and inspire me. You're on my list :)
