In Canada, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, and in the USA they’ll be celebrating in November.
This is one of my favorite holidays because you probably surmised that besides writing, cooking is another passion of mine—as is eating. 🙂
I strive to keep an attitude of gratitude daily, and the list grows as each day as I am blessed with the small things that are bestowed on me, my family, friends and the world.
I’m Grateful and give thanks for…..
Always on the top of my list to thank is God, without Him or Her, then none of this would be possible for me.
I am eternally thankful for my love-of-my-life/best friend-with-much-benefits (husband), my boys—I love them to Pluto and beyond. My family and extended family.
I would take a bullet (not a fatal one, but a flesh wound) for my good friends.
Love my friends in person and friends I’ve met online (some I have met in person and some I look forward to meeting). My girl posse—my blood related sisters, and my sisters through love.
Grateful for the friends who will always be my friend–because…you know, they know too much.
To the Thelma to my Louise…but we’d have to change the ending on that…over the cliff would suck.
To the friends who are the “she” to my “nanigans”.
To the friends who will always lend a hand when I trip and fall—after they’re done laughing of course.
To the Ethel to my Lucy.
The gift of writing, reading and all the connections I’ve made with readers, bloggers and colleagues in the publishing industry.
The ambitious women and men who colored way outside the lines, and did not listen to the naysayers who told them that their goals for change, their innovative spirit, and their steadfast desire to better themselves and the world around them couldn’t be done.
These brave women and men thought big, and because they put themselves and their ideals out there, they blazed a trail for the rest of us in politics, music, creative arts, engineering, business, science—every faction of society.
He’s always glad to see us, fills our home with his wagging tail, wet nose, and lovable personality.
FOOD INDUSTRY’s UNSUNG HEROES
The farmers, grocery clerks, transport drivers, warehouse workers, chocolate factory, chefs, sous-chefs, servers, cleaning staff, and all the others working behind the scenes in the food industry.
ALL EIGHT SENSES
Sense of Humor, Common Sense, Good Sense, plus all Five Senses
BRAVE WOMEN & MEN & CANINE
The women,men, and canine (land, air and sea)—here and overseas, the first responders, and all the people behind the scenes and front lines—who unblindly follow orders and risk their lives so that we may enjoy freedom and safety.
I’m grateful for all of you who took the time to read all of this, and even if you didn’t (then you won’t see this, but I’m still grateful for you).
All the people who I chat with on this blog, other blogs, Facebook, Twitter, via email, you all bring something special.
