Happy Thanksgiving!

For your Monday inspiration, a bit of soft light through the petals of a mum.  The golden glow of this flower against the gray, cold winds of November just warms my heart, as I hope it will yours, too.

We all have so much to be grateful for, blessings to numerous to really count.  I find that the simpler the blessing, the more it means.  Simpler?  Maybe basic is the word. Basic activities, basic material things that support life, basic good values that help us get on in this life.  

You won’t find me in the shopping malls this week. I’ll go out of my way to avoid them.  And I may not be online much either because I have learned that there are really more important things.  Things like spending time with those I love, having good conversations, sharing a meal, reading a book, holding hands with my hubby and going for a walk.  We’ll celebrate our good health, good friends, and basic things like shelter, clothing, food, which is a great way to remember that we really do have enough.

I wish the same for you!  May your days this week be filled with goodness, with peace, and a chance to reflect on life’s richest blessings.  

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Ah, you won't find me anywhere near the mall either 🙂 Such gorgeous golden light, filtered through these golden petals – a welcome warmth. Thank you for your friendship. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. I agree, this is a wonderful time to spend with family. I don't shop much anymore, and would never go shopping this time of year. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

  3. I can't imagine shopping on the holiday…..those moments with family gathered around
    seem too precious to pass over with crowds and stores.
    Glad to know some folks agree:)
    I'm thankful for you, friend……hope this season is your sweetest so far,
    Jennifer
