I recall the conversation around the Thanksgiving table reflecting things we were grateful for when I was a child. Now dinner seems to focus on how early one is getting up the next morning to be out shopping and where the best sales are.
I don't think Thanksgiving gets its due these days. Between money and health, things are tough for so many. We need a positive day like this to remember what we're thankful for, be it large or small. Some glimmer of positive sight that will keep us moving forward. For 2009 here's what I'll remember being thankful for:
Thankful for my health and that all of the tests this year came back negative
Thankful to Champ for tolerating my learning how to ride "correctly"
Thankful to my Hubby, for not going over the edge, wrecking my car and leaving me alone on this earth
(Sorry you didn't get an Elk)
Thankful for our wonderful Daughter
Thankful to Cisco and Sunny and their kind hearts
Thankful to Hero Trainer, for helping me find my confidence
Thankful to my pals at Ladies Night, for all the fun we've had and their encouragement
Thankful for Hank, my buddy and The Bestest Dog
Thankful for family, friends and Cabin Creek Cocktail Parties :)
Thankful for our home
Hoping You Have A Wonderful Thanksgiving
