Wednesday November 23rd ~

 You must trust and believe in people or life becomes impossible...

Trust can be a fragile thing, but it is the foundation on 
which all relationships are built. Sniff knows that no matter 
what happens I will always take care of him, protect him and
 forever love him.  Just like he loves us.  Sniff trusts us.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  We are not really
 doing much this year.  Even though we actually have 2 dinner
 invitations, we have chosen to decline them both.  Growing up
 we entertained so much.  I have the best childhood memories.

My parents' home was always filed with friends and 
of course all five of their girls.  My sisters entertain often,
 and my parents continue to do the same.  What happened 
to me I'm not sure.  Arvid ๐Ÿ˜‚?  Who knows?

I do love to cook and have family over, Arvid is not always so
 keen on entertaining.  I guess as time has passed by, I have gotten 
into the habit of less socializing.  In all honesty I won't mind 
doing a little more, but Arvid is not keen on socializing. 

 Although I will admit, he is so much better now than 
he was a few years ago.  When he was first introduced to 
one of my family's "function" as he likes to call it, he was a bit 
taken back.  Just a regular gathering was 50-100 people. 

 Even I was taken back.  I didn't even know most of them. 
 That's Indians for you.  You invite one, and that one tells
 it to another.  Next thing you know the entire village
 is at your house.  But boy, growing up sure was so very
entertaining.  And work.  We had a great childhood.

The days have been a bit on the gloomy side lately, and as 
mentioned cold for SWFL.  On the bright side, still super warm
 compared to most places.  Overall can't and won't complain.

Even Sniff is feeling a little more tired and bla today.  
On the other hand, Sniff is always happy no matter what kind of a 
day it is.  He knows he's loved and safe.  He's my happy place.

To all a good day. Strive to find things to be thankful for,
 and just look for the good in who you are.  Yesterday I had the 
first of my 16 breast scans.  Plus I had 3 tiny tattoos place on 
my body as a guide.  I am ashamed to say that the the needle 
poking me caused me to flinch.  I do not tolerate pain well.

Acknowledging the good that you already have in
 your life is the foundation for all abundance...
