Happy Thanksgiving

A very fine stained glass window at The American Club, Kohler, Wisconsin.

Gratitude is what keeps us going in the midst of
pain and sorrow.  It’s what makes us realize how good
we have it.   Without giving thanks for what we have
we are nothing but takers.  And when you are nothing
but a taker you are nothing.

Today and everyday I give thanks for my warm, cozy home.
My husband.  My pets.  My friends.  My neighbors.
My creativity.  My music.  My health.  Yoga.  My business.
My self.  

Gratitude is part of my daily life.  Not just today but everyday.
I give thanks to all you for your kindness, warmth and friendship.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Cynthia. Such a beautiful window. I try to be grateful for everything. Traffic jams on the way to work seems to be pushing it, but then I remember to be thankful that I have a car, a job to go to, and the gumption to have got my drivers licence way back when.
Have a wonderful weekend.x
