As we are a week out from Thanksgiving, I want to hear what people are thankful for at this moment in time in your life.
I’ll share what I am thankful for. In addition to working at Mayo Clinic, I also moonlight as a farmer’s wife, which means I’m often “gifted” with farm duties to perform. Tuesday night found me in a Allis tractor pulling a hopper cart full of corn along a steep, windy, narrow path through the woods from the isolated field my husband was combining up to the road to fill the gravity wagons to take to town. Halfway up the hill, my darling tractor killed, sending me on a backward slide down the hill, in the dark, with a cart full of corn and a steep drop on one side to try to avoid. By some gift from God, I was able to stop the slide, restart the tractor, and gun it up the rest of the hill for all it was worth to finish my task. My thankfulness is for the fortuitous outcome of that situation (and also that no one could hear my “commentary” during the event!). I REALLY wish I could be thankful for a successful end to harvest, but that day hasn’t come yet.
What are you thankful for?
