In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving  

As you read this, I am making pie and baking potato casserole while the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade goes by on the little kitchen television.  Maybe I'll get a chance to watch "It's a Wonderful Life," too.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I believe gratitude is the main ingredient to happiness and showing enough thanks is something I am always working on.  Being thankful helps us see all the good in our lives - the full part of the glass and not the empty part.

What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for an all-knowing Father in Heaven that blesses each one of us with exactly what we need to become better people and fulfill our purpose here on earth.

I'm thankful for an outstanding family:  my kind husband, amazing children, wonderful parents, sister, brothers and fantastic in-laws.

I'm thankful every day for my health.  Since we've had so many unexpected ups and downs in this category lately, I definitely no longer take it for granted.

I'm also thankful for so many other things:  great friends, freedom, a warm home, good food and CREATIVITY!

It IS a wonderful life.


  1. A great post to start my Thanksgiving day with Kathy. I too am surrounded by ALL my children this morning, and I am in heaven. We are busy baking and cooking and laughing and just having a great time! I am also very thankful for you, my sister.



Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
