Happy Thanksgiving!

May you be blessed with gratitude for all good things in your life.

May nothing fence you in or keep you from success.

May I appreciate winter this year because it's here and I can't do a thing about it.

The holiday season is upon us.  Sometimes it feels like a race to the finish line but this year I have a lot of my shopping done early, a miraculous and new accomplishment for me.  I moaned and groaned about winter last year but it didn't make it any better so this year I am determined to remember the key.  That buried beneath the ice and snow lie the mysteries of spring.  So what if winter lasts 6 months and spring doesn't?  Right?  Right.

In accordance with the holiday I am so very grateful for my family and friends, my warm house, my furry companions and Good Cooking!  Hope you have a wonderful day full of gratitude for the blessings in your life as well.

I know about the struggle with winter and maybe if it wasn't so cold I'd do better with it to. Good luck with this.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What a great post, Loran... I hope that you and your family also have a wonderful Thanksgiving... I'm sure you won't be 'all fenced in'---even if you have ice and snow... Yipes!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Well, we are indeed struggling with winter here in snowy Seattle, but there is always so much to be thankful for and you don't have to look hard! I feel so very blessed! Wishing you and your family a wonderful, beautiful Happy Thanksgiving, Loran!

Great attitude, and smart, too. Once it's here, we're stuck with it. Might as well enjoy.
I'm jealous that you have your shopping done already.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
