This morning I fueled up at a Church breakfast. The Immanuel Church isn't my church but it is in my neighborhood. It's one of those great little old neighborhood churches of days gone by. Although their congregation is small, they are a mighty group of workers. They've been holding lots of events lately as they need a new furnace. And they cook a mean breakfast.....Mmmmm
Then I browsed a bit downtown. Truthfully I seemed to socialize more than shop. Which is a good thing because it means that more and more people are shopping downtown instead of out of town at the big malls.
Although we have yet to have any snow, we have had 2 days of double-digit minus temperatures. Brrrr! I've developed a "special relationship" with my heated car seats ;). (Really)
Tonight I had to run in to the office for a short time. For a few minutes I felt myself grumbling about being there on a Saturday night. Then I heard something. My office building is next door to a large church. My church. The carol bells play at certain times each day. I sat there listening to Hark The Herald Angels Sing play on the bells. I looked outside and saw Christmas in a small town.
I was reminded that I was grateful to have a job and and office to go to when many do not. I am grateful for my little town.
And the cherry on top tonight is I'm watching my all-time favorite movie "It's a Wonderful Life". Who doesn't love George Bailey?
Have a great evening
