A thought came to the forefront of my mind, and I remember saying to myself, "This is wonderful. I ought to do a Thankful Heart post about it!" And that thought was followed by this one: "I had better write it down, or I'll forget........ [briefly casts about for a pen or scrap of paper, but fails to see anything readily available] ......Nah, this is nifty enough and obvious enough, I won't forget it."
I forgot it.
I have been trying to recall it for days, because I remember it was quite good. But nothing has resurfaced. I remember I was looking at the sky, admiring the clouds and the colors of the sunset. I remember the stretch of road we were on. I remember having my feet propped up on the dash.
I cannot - for the life of me! - remember what wonderful, obvious thing I was so thankful for.
I am grateful that I have too many blessings to remember them all. How pampered can one woman possibly be? So much that is nifty and benevolent in my life that I can't keep track of it? It's true. Silver linings left and right. And if that perfect thought ever circles back around, I have a pen and notepad in my purse. I don't want to miss another thought of thanks.
What are you blessed with today?
