A day of thanks and recognition for all that I have…

Thanksgiving turkey hand

Thankful -adj. conscious of a benefit received

Though I try to acknowledge the many things for which I am thankful on a daily, if not moment by moment basis, on this Thanksgiving Day holiday, I would like to take a moment to count the things for which I am grateful:

  • My health. I do not take this for granted ever. I have lost several friends who were far too young to die, and know many who suffer challenging health issues.
  • My husband. He was worth waiting for.
  • My friendship with my stepdaughter. It did not come easy or fast.
  • My writing career. I finally get to do what I love. It brings me joy every day–even when it’s challenging.
  • My “real life” friends and my cyber author friends who have given me so much support and encouragement.
  • For comfort. I have enough to eat and a roof over my head, and I want for nothing I need.
  • That I can spend this day with family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  1. An excellent list. I’m especially pleased for you over the friendship with your stepdaughter. Those relationships can be tricky, so good for you for persevering.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Well said. Cara Bristol. Well said. Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day, with all the trimmings it brings. Which might include a ‘spanking good time’.

  3. So many of us need reminders to be thankful for what we take for granted. It’s a good day when we do it on our own. 🙂
