Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

(via)
Don't we have so much to be thankful for? In the spirit of the (US) Thanksgiving holiday, amazing Marilou at Twenty York Street has tagged me to share a gratitude list. Thank you Marilou! I couldn't be happier to oblige. :)
  • I am thankful to be alive - a privilege denied many
  • For having a roof over my head & place to sleep each night
  • For not having to worry where my next meal will come from
  • For my safety - I can walk down my street without fear of bombs, war, torture
  • And for what I have - more health than sickness, loved ones, priceless immaterial experiences, passions to pursue
~ I'm signing off early this week, but wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving full of laughter, peace, thankful thoughts, and nourishment in body and soul! ~

What a good and sweet reminder to cherish what Thanksgiving is really about. I think I'll make a similar gratitude list to reenforce all the things that I take for granted. So easy to dwell on what we're missing! Happy happy day. :)

It's sad that we need such reminders but to be grateful for what we have is wonderful... To be alive, yes, my post today is about that exactly because my friend who collapsed just nearly escaped death... I can't tell you how thankful for life that has made me. Happy Thanksgiving.
