Yes, I forgot to schedule this post.
In my defense, the violet was blooming, and caught my attention. I love when the violet blooms in the depth of winter. It reminds me that even in the midst of trials, you can still be a blessing to others–like that beautiful violet.
In my defense, I was busy pouring a cup of coffee — my first cup of the day — when I suddenly realized I had not put away the Christmas coffee mugs. But then, I realized this particular one is not too Christmas-y, and could be dubbed a “winter” coffee mug.
It was only after contemplating all this that I woke to the fact, it was Thursday and I hadn’t scheduled a post.
Hello, Thursday Morning just wouldn’t work on a Friday. But, it is still morning, though later than usual. The temperature is 13 and feels like 2–just thought I’d throw that in there. When you get to be my age, your attention tends to bounce around a little.
So, I hope you’ll forgive me that I almost missed the last Thursday post of 2017, when I had planned to formally say goodbye to 2017. Thus the title, “Goodbye 2017.”
Most of all, I hope you know how much I appreciate you, my followers, and readers. Sorry I almost forgot, but I hope I at least provided a giggle, and maybe an ounce of inspiration about the violet.
May your 2018 start out amazing. May the blessings build as you go. May you bloom where you’re planted, like Daniel in my October post.
Blessings, anyone? I hope you’ll comment with your 2017 blessings.
