What are you thankful for?


After an evening elbow deep in stuffing, I realized that there was no post up for Thanksgiving. I decided to go with the basics.

My BBFF Liz tweeted this question today and it got me to thinking about all the people out there who are reading (and I know you are there because I see the numbers rising). How cool would it be if every person that reads this blog left a comment letting us know what makes them feel like giving thanks.

The world is surely on fire. At the risk of being cliché, now more than ever, is a time to share what works in our lives.

Me? Good health – NEVER taken for granted, having my daughter home, my brother and his family visiting and sharing the holiday with good friends and family. For those who are not joining us, we miss you.

Oh and a wonderful update on the blogger mom who sent out an appeal for a kidney donor for her daughter. The hospital said their lines were jammed and never have they received so many donor forms. AND, they are optimistic that they have found a match. Read more here. So, yes, I am thankful for the power of the internet. 

Now give it up out there!

  1. Is it cheating to say I posted my list on my blog? (I just discovered yours and am marking it so I can visit again.) Hope you have a most BLESSED Thanksgiving.

  2. Great news on the kidney front and sounds as though you are having a few blessings yourself. Enjoy!

    It may be cliche but it is so true…family, friends and health. Everything else will fall into place. I wish every one who reads this a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. Give someone a hug…it will make you smile.

    I am thankful for holding on to a sense of hope. It is easy to lose that considering what is going on all around us.

    And of course my family, my friends and the wonderful meal we will share today.

    And one more thing – the internet. I can skype my friend in England, text my friend across town, blog my gratefulness to those who read this, and email family and friends who are not with me today. Feel the love!

  5. I am thankful for having choices in my life. I’m thankful for my immediate and extended family and thankful that we all love each other so much.

    I am thankful that the older I get, the more I have to be thankful for.
