I was hoping to be able to have this area as an over-flow area on Thanksgiving Day but it looks as if the weather will not be cooperating with me on this plan. We have had snow, high winds, LOTS of rain, broken tree limbs and tops, and overall, just some unseasonal cold weather the last couple of days. When snow falls on trees that have not even lost all their leaves yet, it makes it hard for them to lose the snow. And then, SNAP!!

Tomorrow is filled with shopping, baking, and last minute preparations. I am ahead of the game already so that makes me feel relaxed and less stressed. I am hoping that all of you are feeling the same and that you all have time to reflect on what you are thankful for.

I never like to write lists. I don't know why really. I just have never really needed them. But, today I am writing a list of things I am thankful for. Here goes:


  • my health and the health of those that I love and are close to me.
  • the ability to forgive.
  • new friends in my life.
  • the love that I feel for mankind.
  • my home and land, an abundant fresh water supply, and fresh air to breathe.
  • retirement and retirement income.
  • health insurance.
  • the blessings of a spiritual community.
  • and much, much more.
I send blessings out to all of you who follow my blog. I know that many of you do not introduce yourself to me but I hope you are enjoying your visit here. I write this blog with the intention of sharing my humble life but also with the hopes that by showing you that I am human, you will acknowledge the humanity within yourselves. I write to learn to be more tolerant of others and to see the differences in each of us that make us unique. I also write as a sort of diary and a way of learning. This world is a wonderful place, filled with so many opportunities and opinions. If just half of what I learn from all of you rubs off on me, I am a truly blessed. My eyes are continually being opened. To that I am forever thankful. I love you all (yes, you too!).
