Giving Thanks....

for the quiet moment at dusk as the day's light begins to fade * peppermint mocha frappacinos * being with my family * snuggling with my daughter * receiving hugs from Scout * and giving hugs back * the way the morning light filters into the sunroom * fulfilling work * the most wonderful daughter in the world * a home * a car that does what it's supposed to do * books that stop me in my tracks * beautiful photographs * peace * music that makes me get up and dance * the time I spend with my daughter * freedom and liberties that come with being an American * my education * the best mother- and father-in-law on the planet * the comfort of a cozy bed on a Saturday morning * the warmth of the fireplace during the cold months of Winter * starry skies at night and blue skies during the day * cloud pictures * rare snowfalls * sisters who listen * rich and creamy coffee ice cream * the sound of ocean waves crashing onto shore * family even though we're miles apart * friends and co-workers who brighten my day * a husband who makes life easier and happier than I could have ever imagined.

Beautiful words Roban, written by your hand that is connected to a wonderful heart and soul.

It's been a rough few years for many people, and the economic turmoil is likely to continue. Yet we all have blessings that we too often overlook - our health, our loved ones, our faith.

Thanks for leaving comments on my blog. I know you are a busy, busy gal. My last post "Making up my mind", will be my last post. Your comment helped me decide to finally let go of the blog and wander down another road....whatever that may be!

I have been so blessed and look forward to one day meeting you in real life.

Namaste

I love the way you write. Thanks for sharing your gratitudes with us. (I think I made that word up - it's got red squiggle under it.) You have such a way with words.

i hope your thanksgiving is beautiful and warm....

and i have to agree with you about pretty much everything on your list....it's the frappacino that threw me off....i think that's coffee, right ? and i only drink tea.....but otherwise, spot on :)

This is a wonderful, wonderful list! Here it is Thanksgiving Day and we are all piled up watching the parade. So, I have the perfect time to drop by and visit friends. I wanted to tell you that one the things I am thankful for today is blogging and the way it has made my world so much bigger. Thank you for the friendship I have found here. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, my friend. Happy Thanksgiving!

Well said my dear...hope you have a lovely day eating my mother's/your mother-in-law's cooking. She sent me the menu...just to let me know that everyone will be stuffed (no pun intended) when you push away from the table. In fact, as I look at the time you are probably eating right this minute...loving you. xxxooo Charlotte
