Giving Thanks


Thank you all for your bolstering comments and wisdom!   I am so appreciative of your comments  and emails always, but especially yesterday and today.  They all served to make me  realize I needed to look at the half full cup…not the half empty one.   Thank you.  I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! 

So here I am, in my favorite spot on the blue couch in the  living room with this much loved laptop.  Wait, I must pop the top button of my jeans…there mucho better. 

Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants.  ~Kevin James

I’m thinking about what a lovely day it turned out to be….with family and friends.  Ended up with 8 at the dinner table, and really that was just right….no additional tables required.  I was busy playing with Colton and forgot to pop the turkey in the over, so dinner was a little late.  

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. –Erma Bombeck

So here we are, with this year’s list of THANKFULNESS, a concise but bursting list with big important gratitude’s for me today: 

Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.  ~Native American Saying

-I am thankful for this day, just the gift of having another day is something I always want to be aware of. 

-For having loved ones to celebrate with.  Mostly Jeff, he is always here…side by side, that’s us.  I know how fortunate I am. 

-All of my children are employed in their chosen profession!  And they have been especially blessed in finding just the right jobs. 

-Once you or a loved one has had a serious illness, one is forever aware that your body can fall into dis-ease at any time.  I am thankful for the health of my loved ones and myself! 

-I am so thankful for this comfortable home, this spot on the blue couch, my workhorse of a kitchen with plenty of food (leftovers) in the frig.  As much as I am disgruntled with its  idiosyncrasies,  I really do love this place that has served us so well all these years. 

-I am blessed with many sweet, good and inspiring peoples in my life!   They keep me grounded, yet soaring and bring much joy. 

Psalm 28:6-7

Warmest wishes,

  2. Happy to hear that your Thanksgiving turned out well.
    Ours was shared with about 28 others, some we knew, some we met for the first time .
    There was plenty of food, many varieties of wine, good conversation, lots of hugs. We are thankful, we are blessed.
