We are approaching the end of the year. We have less than a month and a half before the start of a new year. And I wonder what I accomplished during the past eleven months. It is sometimes easier to list what I haven't accomplished: I haven't sold a book. I haven't lost weight. I haven't forgiven those who have hurt me.
A pretty dismal record, to be sure.
And then I remember what the Lord has allowed me to accomplish. I was there for a family member when she needed me. I was there for my granddaughter who was sick one day and was going to be home alone. I was there for a friend going through a rough time.
Maybe that is enough.
So, for today, I am grateful for those times when I was there. I am always grateful for those who are there for me.
