Gratitude

We all have something to be thankful for if we think about it a little bit. I hope all my fellow bloggers can find that peace today, Thanksgiving Day.  I am thankful for many things and here are a few of them. I am thankful for my friends and family. I am thankful for my life and health. I am thankful I live in California. I am thankful I can read books and write. I am thankful for all the nice bloggers I have met.  🙂  Here are a few words from a wise man.

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.”

– Buddha
What are you thankful for?

    Much the same things as you, Deborah, although, of course, I don’t live in California! But, to me, our beautiful Lake District is an absolute paradise. And, after having gone through a bout of pain (nothing serious, though), I am so grateful to be pain-free. AND my hubby does all the hoovering – now, what more could you wish for?!? Sorry for being facetious, but I’m just happy to be alive. 🙂

      Not facetious. I know what you mean. After a bad bout of something we are grateful when it is over. I was hoovering my head off yesterday getting ready for company today. We call it vacuuming but I do have a Hoover vacuum. My husband does wash the floors. I am glad you are feeling better, thank goodness.

    I am thankful for my family and my friends and the people who have yet to enter my life and become my friends. Thank you, Deborah, for your sensitive, thoughtful, and often wonderfully funny blogs.
    I hope it’s okay if I offer a quote here, since it seems so apropos of what you’ve said?
    ” Gratitude to gratitude always gives birth.”
