The Spirit of Festive Fall Holidays alighted on my bed this morning and asked me to convey well wishes to all of you out there (if you celebrate) for a wonderful Thanksgiving! May we all realize and be grateful for all the blessings in our lives, even it is something as simple as a warm bed and a dry place to sleep.
Hope everyone has a great day filled with much laughter and love!!
Edit: My brother sent me an email that contained some very thoughtful sentiments for this day I thought I'd pass on. I choose not to omit the religious slant but even without that, you can agree there is much to be thankful for.
LOOK AROUND . . . thank You, Lord . . .
for our wonderful country
for close family ties
for an opportunity to help others
for a place to live, clothes to wear, food to eat
LOOK WITHIN . . . thank You, Lord . . .
for eyes that see the beauty of Your creation
for minds that are curious, creative, and competent
for memories of pleasures and recent accomplishments
for broken dreams and lingering afflictions that humble us
for a sense of humor that brings healing and hope
