Truly Thankful

This uniquely American holiday is a time when we gather with friends and family and count the blessings of another year.  For some, those blessings might be the bounty of fame or good fortune.  Others might simply be thankful that a particularly rough time is finally past.  We all experiences highs and lows in our lives and I believe we should be grateful even for disappointment and sorrow because those are the contrasts that gives meaning and depth to our joy.  

I am grateful for my husband who has seen me
at my worst and, amazingly, still loves me. 

I am grateful for all my friends who really know me 
and love me anyway.  

I am grateful for my family who I believe are the 
'friends' God chose to put in my life.  

These are the real blessings 
for which I am truly thankful.

When you count your blessings this Thanksgiving Day, 
I hope you will realize that the people in your life
are your greatest treasure and be truly thankful.  


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  2. Thank you, BR. Glad you didn't have to brave the weather today. Wouldn't want you to be late for supper tonight!

  3. You said it for me. All those things are what I am thankful for, not just on Thanksgiving day, but every single minute of every day.

    Right Truth

  4. Me too, Debbie ...every day. Hope you and the Grouch had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
