An Attitude of Gratitude

All across the nation today people are cutting into hams, turkeys, pies, and other delicious concoctions, surrounded by family and friends.  For this one day, we are all reminded how good we really have it, in spite of our whining to the contrary the other 364 days of the year.  On this day, we will all fill our hearts with love and joy of being together, even as we fill our bellies to bursting on food produced by the love and careful hands of others.

On this day, I want you all to know how very much I value and appreciate you and your companionship both online and "in real life" throughout the year.  I want you to know that you have made a difference in my life, whether by sharing my laughter or by sharing my tears, and by reminding me each day that I am not really alone, even when I sometimes feel like I am.

I hope you all, wherever you may be, are busy enjoying good food and good companionship, whether putting up Christmas decorations or lolling about on the couch in a post-prandial stupor in front of some football game.  Lastly, I hope you are all as thankful for each other and for the blessings you've been given as I am thankful for min and for all of you in my life.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!

"O Lord, who lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness."

P.S.  And because it is me,  there's no way I can stay serious indefinitely.  So here's a little Thanksgiving humor for you as well:

Eat Mor Bif.

Creative use of tinfoil FTW.  I'm soooo doing this one year.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I LOVE the tanned turkey. Might try it at Christmas to surprise everyone.

    Not Supermom sent me!

  2. Yay! That's why I keep Not Supermom around. ;)

    (And tanned turkeys ROCK!)
