I can't believe we are at the end of November. The time continues to fly by some days and drag by other days. The next surgery seems so close some days yet so far away other days.
In all honesty, some days I still can't believe the events of this year, and on other days I know it's real and am thankful for the answers to prayer.
November has been a good month. Some days have been better than others. Some days I have more grace for myself on the bad days, other days I have little grace for myself when I'm having a bad day. I think I should not have a bad day in light of things so I get frustrated with myself on the bad days. My mom always told me I was harder on myself than anyone else ever would be. She was right.
Several good things this month. November has been a social month. Neighborhood dinner, book club, S5 monthly dinner and birthday parties. Plus Thanksgiving. Lots to celebrate!
I also read more this month, so that makes me happy! Here's the list if anyone is interested.
1. You Learn by Living-nonfiction
2. Present Over Perfect-nonfiction
3. The Art of Hearing Heartbeats-fiction (book club)
4. Next Life Might Be Kinder-fiction
5. 84 Charring Cross-nonfiction
6. Four Seasons in Rome-nonfiction
I also managed to watch Bleak House and the first season of Poldark. Record screen time for me in one month!
All in all a pretty well rounded month...kind of like me after Thanksgiving.
Now, Advent has begun. The season of hope and anticipation. I encourage each of you to seek the King who came as a baby all those years ago.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 NIV
