An Attitude of Gratitude

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL!



We need to have gratitude every day!


For the bounty in our lives.....


For the beauty of the world around us....


For our friends and families (even when they are sarcastic....)

On my first Thanksgiving after starting the blog, I wrote this.....and except for minor changes due to the passage of time, it still stands. It is my fervent wish that each of you will have a blessed Thanksgiving to share with family and friends, and that you will reflect on gratitude and how you share it with the world.

One of my favorite Dennis the Meance strips had his father asking Dennis if he wanted to offer blessings on the turkey and he said he thought they were too late.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love that expression, an attitude of gratitude. It has been on my mind today. Thanks, Judy. Have a good day tomorrow.

And I wish a wonderful Thanksgiving to you. I intend on being thankful to breathe through my nose, as I'm having wings for the holiday. And, I'm thankful for the good folks I've met in blogging. Count yourself high on that list.

Don't know how I missed this but hope you had a wonderful day.
I enjoyed your first post for Thanksgiving. It is true our thankfulnesses(is that a word) change as we mature.
Was a little sad to read a comment by someone we lost this year.

This is a cute post. Also,thank you for directing us to your previous essay. I loved your statement:

"My family (all generations), my home, my talents, the opportunities I have been given in this life to grow and prosper, my friends (on-line as well as real-time) and mentors, the animals I have cared for and loved, for the beauty of our planet, for my daily bread, and for whatever is my lot afterward."

Well said dear friend!
