This month I have been one of many Facebook users who have been writing a daily post about what we are thankful for. I've found that the more I focus on the blessings that I have received, the happier I feel about life in general. As the season turns to long cold and dark days, it would be easy to wallow in gloom and doom...and if Democrats had lost the election, I might really be in mourning! But I have much to be thankful for. While I have given a gratitude shout out to some material things (hot tub, chocolate, and diet coke to name a few), it is the people in my life that are most important to me. Even though I am somewhat reclusive, family and friends are what kept coming to the forefront as I made my daily post. All in all I realize how fortunate I am to live in the United States and not want for basic necessities.
Tomorrow the spouse and I are flying to Texas for Thanksgiving. We spend every Thanksgiving with our grandchildren. I hope you get to spend time with family and friends this Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful holiday.
