Whether it was the Pilgrims or the Jamestown settlers, I'm glad our forefathers and mothers took the time to be thankful for their survival and started us on this annual observance.
We live in a time of such plenty [at least in much of the world] that an annual pause to reflect is in order.
This year I am especially thankful for good health. My younger brother is dealing with serious vision issues and it makes me realize how precious my good [tho aging!] vision is, and how much it contributes to my well-being.
I'm thankful for Mitchell, who enriches my life daily. Playing his harp fills our home with music and my heart with joy.
And, the man can cook, too.
I'm thankful for Elizabeth and James - they know why.
And, I am very thankful for the friends I've found in the blog world. Women and men across the globe who share their daily loves and lives with each other and with me. Interesting people with triumphs and tribulations who offer support and guidance to folks who used to be strangers.
It's a wonderful world on the blog. Who knew?
You know who your are. Raise a cup or a glass and know I am saying "thank you" when I raise mine .... hopefully filled with something bubbly!
