Thanksgiving Week Begins!





Thanksgiving week begins!

Pretty soon Americans will be sitting down to delicious turkey dinners with all the trimmings.

All the Thanksgiving dinners celebrated in the past may come to mind.

So many people we celebrated with as children are no longer with us, just as, in future generations, we will no longer be here.

Soon it will be time to take down the amber glass from the kitchen windowsills and pack it away.

One thing is for absolute sure. 

Developing a sense of deep gratitude is a life-changer.

It changed my own life for the better and there isn't a day that goes by----or even a second---that I'm not grateful to be alive.

This will be a busy week  for many of us but a beautiful one, too, especially if remember to be thankful for every moment.

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU LOOK FORWARD TO THIS WEEK?

My in-laws are coming over the day after Thanksgiving to put ornaments on the tree, remember the old days, have pie, etc...

I am thankful for nice in-laws!

Happy Thanksgiving week. Unfortunately for us, it will be just a regular week here and a full work day on Thursday. I do try to be grateful, but there are moments when silly people get in the way of that attitude of gratitude. Crazy days at school lately. Counting them down one by one. Best wishes, Tammy

Okay I am going to be honest - I am looking forward to sleeping late - the kids will be on vacation and I don't have to get up. I am so tired.
