Thankful Thoughts 9/04/18


Today I am thankful for windows with views in all four directions. That may seem like a rather ordinary thing, but if you’ve ever lived in an apartment that had only a front window and maybe a small one in the back, you know how claustrophobic that can be. I spent many years working in offices with no windows at all, and they were so dreary. I’ve watched the seasons turn from the confinement of wire covered windows too. I hated that.

We live in a simple manufactured house in rural west Texas, but I love my home. I grumble a lot about the heat, dust, and lack of trees, grass and water, but the land is flat here and I can see for miles. The sunrises and sunsets are amazing. I love watching storms build up and roll in too.

That brings me back to windows. We have large windows in each room, and if the blinds open I can see light pouring in from all directions from my chair in the living room. I love the starry canopy of night out here, but I love the light of day and the wide-open view even more.

I've been blogging off and on since August of 2006. I adopted the pen name Josie Two Shoes in 2007 as I began a new chapter of my life standing on my own two feet. Now I'm married to the man of my dreams; we live in dusty West Texas with a house full of furkids. I am an Aquarian by birth, and although I am past sixty and slightly frayed around the edges, my fascination with this thing called life continues. Faith, family, and friends are important to me; so are honesty, trust, tolerance, compassion and kindness. I'm pretty up front about most things, so if you want to know something more about me, just ask! :-) You can also reach me by email and find me at my Facebook page.

    1. Most definitely light lifts our spirits. We were designed to enjoy the beauty of creation, and when we are stuck in our houses we sometimes miss that connection. I am grateful that I can sit here and see so much from my windows. Today it is the storm clouds rolling in, and I love that too!
