For All My American Bloggy Friends ....;

 Thanksgiving


On my bucket list- want to experience an American thanks giving

May I wish you all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING day!
I hope you will be surrounded by your loved ones and, if not, I know you will be thinking of them in your hearts.
 
 
I like the wheat... maybe have them just like this at the guest book table...

Warm and cosy!
Be Thankful.
 
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Hallo, dear Thisisme! I see that you are displaying a new header today - a magnificent collage!

Thank you for offering pretty pictures and words of wisdom for those of us who are celebrating Thanksgiving today. An unknown author wrote that Be Thankful list to remind us that we can reframe any circumstances to change their meaning from negative to positive. For example, this will be the first Thanksgiving in 15 years that I won't have Toto sitting on the floor next to me begging for turkey. I certainly miss Toto but at the same time I am thankful that her suffering has ended and that she is in a better place now. This morning the temperature is in the upper 30 outside my house. It is by far the coldest day of the season but I am thankful for the refreshing change in the weather after many months of uncomfortable heat and humidity.

One thing for which I am especially thankful today is this wonderful Shadykins & Thisikins friendship of ours. Thank you for all that you are, dear friend Thisisme. Truly you are a gift to the world.
