Thanksgiving is almost here, who isn’t THANKFUL? I am and this is

Why!

Having reached that part of our journey, the road that takes us to look back instead of forward, I honestly have much to be thankful.
Naturally, I traveled up hills, sliding down and falling too! Most of the twists and turns I chose were correct, yet the few where I lost my compass, my direction is what I hope to forget.
I am thankful for TRADITIONAL Catholic Confession.

I am thankful I followed my vocation of marriage and raising children, now rewarded with grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
God does reward on earth as well as in Heaven. Be thankful!

When the nuns explained why we should pray daily for the person we would eventually marry. I began to pray that day.
I am thankful for 50 plus years of marriage to a man who treated me like a queen. It was nice to be treated like a queen, mainly since we were raising six children; I was so tired at times. No time to write poetry, which is why I try to do it now. Thankful for the time left to me.

Now a widow yet thankful that God has given me His Faith He established on earth. A Faith, my husband, came to join, knowing now we will be together again when my time is finished.

Sharing My World — SYW

SYW Share Your World and the questions are below; with my answers.  Nice to know that someone wants to know what I think.  I love it!

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions).

If no, there is no anything as Truth or Facts, just whatever pleases man, like we have today. 

  1. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?

Humans have an immortal soul that will live forever either in Heaven or Hell at the end of time; Animals have a mortal soul that dies when they die. However, I like to believe that nothing on earth is more significant than what is in Heaven, therefore perhaps animals are in Heaven, hopefully for those who make it to Heaven God will allow our pets to be there, wishful thinking on my part. 

  1. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)

Because God has already judged them.

  1. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence.

An ideal leader, in my opinion, is anyone who keeps or at least TRIES to keep the ten Commandments, since if that should ever happen, we will be blessed by God and have peace throughout the entire world. Not just talk about it but encourage it. We don’t live in a perfect world, and my ideal is a dream, so I will continue to vote for the lesser of the two evils.
