Happy Thanksgiving to you!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends, or even as a quiet day by yourself.  Regardless of who you were with, I hope you all got some time today to think about what you are thankful for.  My family took several moments after dinner to share with each other our top 3 things we are thankful for, and it was such a great time for truth and reality to come to the surface.  Life is busy, and it can be so easy to run from one thing to the next without taking stock of the life we are living.  I cherish times like today when time is taken to stop and reflect and be thankful.  How incredibly blessed I am, and how immensely thankful I am to God for my life - my job, my employers, my business, my new home and state I'm living in, my loving and supportive family, a few very close friends, warmth, safety, freedom, more than enough food . . . the list could go on.  With so much pain and suffering in this world, lately, I have been often aware of how much I have to be thankful for, even on the days where my own life feels like more than I can handle, or incredibly hard and stretching.

So, with a spirit of thanks, I will go to bed tonight, probably listing in my head the many, many things, big and very small that I have to be thankful for.  We all have things we can be thankful for, and sometimes taking the time to reflect on those things and pick them out one by one, opens the door to realize many more wonderful blessings in our lives to be very thankful for.  A wonderful chain reaction happens.

May you all be incredibly blessed today and in the coming weeks as you continue on in the holiday season.
