Happy Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving just a day away the inevitable question hovers on everyone’s lips. I think most people state the obvious: family, friends, health. Years ago I started keeping a gratitude journal so I could always remember how blessed I was no matter what was happening in my life. In the beginning I had to state at least five things. The list grew quickly from there.

I thought I would share some of my things. Please share what you’re grateful for with me. I’d love to hear them.



Our health

Our  home

The sunshine


My friends

My family (yes, even the crazy Italians)

For being a writer


For my friend Marissa forgiving me for forgetting our breakfast. (I was sick, but that’s no excuse.)

I’m even grateful for the negative people who have crossed my path because I learned something about myself from each one of them.

And the list goes on and on.

Happy Thanksgiving, my faithful reader. I’m grateful for you too.

  1. I’m in on every one of those, Stacey. And I guess I’m grateful I do the cooking, so that I can enjoy my family in my home and actually use the china once a year. Have a wonderful day and keep the attitude of gratitude. A lot of peace tends to go along with it.

  2. Only the creamer, sugar and serving bowls made it out of the china closet. Had no drive to wash the china and crystal and no guts to put in the dishwasher. It still worked out. Here is a link to the table with the everyday dishes that went into the dishwasher happily: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10201399346729067&set=a.2746901155158.119290.1336412792&type=1&theater

    Hope your thanksgiving was great! BTW, my table was no where near done in terms of food going on it 😉
