Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers and their families……
I will make this post brief, as I know this is indeed a busy day of cooking and being with family!
I would like to share this bit of wisdom (by Melody Beattie) with you on this Thanksgiving Day…
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
He has shown kindness
by giving you rain from heaven
and crops in their seasons
He provides you with plenty of food
and fills your hearts with joy.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

hi Kari, sorry so late in returning your wishes. I hope you and your family had a lovely time together.
It always sounds to me that Thanksgiving is like a “trial run” for Christmas… but closer to home and more personal 🙂
thank you for being my friend,
hugs to you and your Captain xx
While I really enjoy our Thanksgiving tradition….it falls so close to Christmas that as you said, it sort of becomes a trial run for Christmas and New Years. Lots of eating during those weeks!
No worries in late responses among close friends…;) That is one of the advantages to having good friends….they understand …no matter what.
Always hugs xxxxxxxx
Thank you Sandy…we did, now eating left-overs! ;)Did you have family over to your house or did you go out of town?
thanks for stopping by
Kari, I hope you and your Captain had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
