With so much energy focused on Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving is an almost forgotten holiday wedged between the two. Perhaps that’s a good thing because there is a calmness around Thanksgiving that doesn’t exist with most other holidays.
Though I try every day to be thankful, it is on this day I sit quietly and focus on all the gifts in my life. They are many, some so small they sometimes get overlooked. Some are full of joy, others are tinged with sadness, but in its own way each is a gift.
One gift I don’t want to overlook is each of you who take the time to read and sometimes comment on these musings. I started writing thinking it would be a good way to keep up with friends but thanks to the power of the internet, a whole new audience has become part of my life. Thank you.
Wherever you are, I wish you a wonderful day and urge you to take time to be grateful not just today but every day.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK but I think the spirit of the holiday is lovely.
This morning I was especially thankful for the beautiful sunrise I saw while driving to work — a blue sky, glorious sun and wisps of mist wreathing the fields.
Yes it’s so important to reflect on all our many blessings, not just today but every day. Happy Thanksgiving, Lulu. xx
