Yes, I am waiting until Thanksgiving Day to post this. I don’t like when the holidays have been celebrated before they have even arrived. Just a quirk for me. Sorry. 🙂
Anyway, I want to tell everyone that I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving and will consider the meaning of the holiday. Be thankful for what you have. It’s a hard concept. Believe me! I know. As much as I long for other things in life, I am quite grateful for what I do have. I am thankful for God. He has sustained me when I was ready to fall apart and He showed me who I really am. He gave me unconditionally love. I am thankful for my two beautiful cats who make me laugh. They provide entertainment on a daily basis. I am thankful for friends and family. I may not see them often, but I do hope they realize they are cared about and I am grateful for them. I am thankful for a job that provides a roof over my head. I am thankful for that roof over my head. I am thankful for the talents God has bestowed upon me. I love writing and painting and am incredibly thankful that I possess those skills. I am thankful that the Pilgrims were brave enough to leave England and head for this great unknown land. And I am thankful the Native Americans didn’t kill them all. 😉
There are days when I forget to be thankful and I think we all do that. Life gets in the way and I kind of let it. And while I may not have much I am very thankful for what I have.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
