For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I used to love Thanksgiving for the food, the day off from work, the gathering of family and friends. Now I’m grateful to Thanksgiving because it’s a reminder of what we should be grateful for every day – simple things like life, nature, home, good people and animals, love. These simple things can be easy to forget, so I’m glad for the reminder.

These are some things I’m grateful for…

And many other things – good bosses at work, a way to express myself creatively. freedom, time…

So many things to be grateful for. Thanks, Thanksgiving, for the reminder.

Hugs to you all.
