And Now A Word From A Slacker

Yes. That would be me. While I admit to preferring my "Hotel Melanoma Chaplain Boss Queen" hat, I'll be honest enough to wear any hat that fits. And, right now, I'm a slacker. I have that on good authority...namely the HM proprietor. And since he's my boss and in charge of my dinky, almost non-existent office space, I'll agree with him, write a new post, and not call him a "jerk". Insert annoying smiley face here.

Yes. I am having an attirude kinda day! It's not about me though. It's about life and changes that are coming and not completely pleasant changes, at that. Nothing to do with melanoma. But it is what it is and we'll roll with the punches and find blessings. And we'll be thankful. Even in the unpleasantness that is sure to come eventually. We will live out our faith. Faith demands to be lived out and put on display in the trying times or it has no powerful voice when all is well.

My heart is full right now. It just is. I don't like watching golden years take on a little tarnish. I don't like watching vibrant oldsters slowing down and not because they choose to but because this is life.

And they teach us younger ones grace. Grace and faith in abundance. And hope. Don't forget hope. They teach us to embrace true living, in the good times and in the bad. In all seasons for there truly IS a time and a season for everything. If we're blessed enough to live long enough to see ALL the seasons.

And they teach us always to be

Thankful!
