Counting Blessings

One more for Thanksgiving. We will be spending it at our Son's home. I usually don not have Thanksgiving dinner at our house. Christmas .. yes.
Do you all have the tradition where you each tell what you are Thankful for each year?? I have a list!! But it basically boils down to "Life" the good the bad and everything in between. Yup all of it. My life is not always moonlight and roses or the best of the best, but it is my life and for all that includes I am so grateful. At church today the pastor talked about that. How some go around saying how bad things are without really seeing the good, the blessings that also fill their lives. My Thanksgiving wish for you all is kind of like that, there may be bad stuff happening right now, but that you are able to also see the blessings that are there too. One of the things on my list...all of you who stop by here and visit....Thank you for that and for the smiles you leave me. Enjoy and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

It is true that we tend to see only the bad things that happen to us, but in between also good things still occur, only it is sometimes difficult to see them.
Sometimes just little things can make a difference, if only for a short time, they are there.
And we have to be thankful for still being around, may be not in the bst shape, but without too much trouble. One of the little good things are your quickpges you make so beautifully from my kits.
Wishigng you a wonderful Thanksgiving sending a smile to you.
