Thanksgiving Day ~ 2011

This year I am so very thankful for my blessings. As I reflect on them, I realize they are abundant: My family * friends * health * and home * That I will spend Thanksgiving Day with my son and his wife * That my Blog returned to the internet and with no loss of information * my new computer * my cold is gone * the colors, textures, and smells of Fall * that God has allowed my sweet Mother to remain with us for 94 years and counting * I am thankful for the friendships I've developed through Blogging * I'm thankful for my talents and my interests. These are just a few things I am thankful for ~ there are so many. But, this year, the one thing I am truly thankful for is that I was blessed with the most wonderful brother. I will always miss him, but now I can reflect on our years together and what a special relationship we shared, without being overcome with sadness. I know how much he loved me and I remember how we were there for each other through the good and the bad. Nothing can take those memories away. I feel he is still looking out for me and I am thankful for that.
When I was young, Thanksgiving Day pretty much meant a day off work and a big feast of turkey with all the trimmings. As the years have passed, I have come to know the true meaning. I must say it is a joyful feeling to take time to reflect on all the good things in my life.

I wish all of you ~ friends and family ~ a BEAUTIFUL THANKSGIVING DAY!!
