Thankful

Thankful we had rain the past two nights.
Thankful I have shelter.
Thankful I have meaningful work.
Thankful I'm safe.
Thankful I love my home, family, friends and my photogenic town.

And that's just for starters.

Some of you may remember our friend Abraham Lincoln of Brookville Daily Photo in Ohio. Abe has to spend Thanksgiving in the hospital with a collapsed lung. If you've got a minute, you might click on over there and wish him well.

(Hmm. Thankful for good health, too.)

Wishing you many, many things to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Thank you for such a perfect photo and sentiment today. I agree with everything you said, and I'm thankful for all the new friends I've made this year on the blogosphere, especially all the ones I've met in person. My life is much richer today and that's a wonderful thing! Enjoy the holiday! (And thanks for the alert about Abraham Lincoln. I'll stop by.)

I'm happy about a lot of things, including the fact that you were my first blogging buddy. Thank you for that. You have great generosity of spirit.

I can start with thanking you for the comment!

Personally I am thankful for being alive - I have lived four years more than I should have, so far.

I hope your celebration goes well - we don't have that, so I'll stay with my Pepsi Max.

Oh, now I've thought of a million other things to add, like my blogfriends, for instance.

Elaine! ;) Oh but the food art--eeuw.

Welcome RuneE, may you live long and prosper.

Welcome Susie of Arabia!

Thank you all for stopping by. May every day be a day of thanksgiving for you!

That sun burns through branches like gratitude through a thicket of worries.

I'm thankful to be greeted every morning with an intriguing photo and story from PDP. And, as AH says, for Petrea's generosity of spirit.

Vanda said...

That picture makes ma want to take a walk in the woods. Judging from the light it must have been early morning. Lovely.

Bernie K. said...

How is your ma, by the way?
