Happy Thanksgiving!

Although it's the day after I still want to wish you, my dear readers, a very happy weekend. 

Just a thought, but:  Why is it that this one day we are reminded to be thankful for what we have in our life? And why should we be reminded of this act every year?
Some people dread the time sitting around the dinner table and being asked what they're thankful for. We should have a long list ready for such a time!
I'm thankful that we can stress over cooking our holiday dinner instead of if we will live to enjoy it!

Watching the beauty of the sun coming up is reason for thanksgiving.
The love and friends that surround us each day is reason for thanksgiving.
Arriving safely home after a long drive and dealing with traffic is a reason for thanksgiving.
Everyday is a thanksgiving day!
That smile from that person while crossing paths in the grocery store is reason for thanksgiving.
And the list can go on forever.
I humble myself everyday thanking our Lord for life and what life drops on my lap each day. It can be wonderful or it can be something that makes me think deeper about myself.

I have a love for collecting turkeys to display all month.

Till next time.
