Today's Thankful Thursday is kind of different. It is almost a place on being thankful. When asked what most of us are thankful for we could quickly name off a handful of things. Our family, friends, job, opportunities, cattle - it all depends on the person. But when we sit down and think about the things we are thankful for and the things we really pay attention to in our life, are we looking over the life we are living?
I received an e-mail on Tuesday from my friend Crystal (www.crystalcattle.com). Crystal is a dear friend and someone who inspired me to begin blogging. Her e-mail was a link to a blog that she suggest some of her friends read. Since it was from Crystal I thought this had to be good and immediately clicked the link.
At the moment I received her e-mail I was up to my elbows in advertising for October publications. I was stressed. I was running 30 different ways. I was BUSY.
And this I read this. BUSY by Ellen-Bo
I am so guilty of throwing the busy card. I know others who are guilty of it. I know people who let being busy take place of their relationships. I am sure as you read this, you at sometime have been guilty of it too.
I am not saying that tomorrow I am not going to bring out the busy card because it truly takes work to set your priorities straight.
So you might ask, "Why is this the Thankful Thursday post?" Because my friends, I am glad I was shown this blog post. I am thankful I was reminded that being busy isn't truly living life. Let's all be thankful for what is going on around us, not what is drawing us in and causing us not to live.
So go on- don't be too busy.
