Happy Thanksgiving!

Leaf from a tree in the backyard...still a few left on it

Leaf from a tree in the front yard....this is the only leaf left on that one

Today in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving!
I wasn't sure what kind of post to do today - such pressure :)
So I thought I would share something from childhood.

When I was growing up, it was traditional for us to
sit around the table and tell what we were thankful for
Here's my list.

I am thankful for:
A wonderful job that I love
A new found appreciation for nature
Kind and generous parents who didn't give up on
the black sheep of the family
Fantastic siblings who are always supportive
Two great kids who are quickly becoming wonderful young adults
A terrific husband - truly a gift from God
To God for sending the greatest Gift of all

I hope that I can make every day a Thankful day!

I am thankful for God's healing power on my daughter.
I am thankful for my salvation.
I am thankful for a wonderful husband who supports me and allowed to me stay home and raise our two wonderful daughters and is now allowing me to stay home to take care of our precious grandson.
I am thankful for God's many blessings.
I have so much to be thankful for but I do not want to take over your blog.

I hope you and your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

I like the last leaves of the summer. The lone leaf is very appealing. I like your list of things to be thankful for. I too am blessed by His abundance in my life!

Lovely post.
You have so much to be thankful for. I`m glad for you. :)

In Norway we don`t celebrate Thanksgiving. I wish we did....

I heard on the radio today about Norwegian families who had lived in USA. They are still celebrating Thanksgiving, after returning to Norway.

Happy Thanksgiving to you. :)

So, Kerri, once you were a wild child? Me too. I am really glad for my past now because I have so many absolutely astonishing moments in memory. In fact, I'm thankful for my past today and I hope you are thankful for yours as well. Love, Annie.

We just got our power back on after 2 hours.
5:30 - 7:30 PM. That's something else for me to be thankful for. :-)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Happy Thanksgiving! A little bit late, but from the heart. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but it is a wonderful oportunity to be grateful, so I am thankful to God for showing me the way and for taking care of my family.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

I hope it is not too late to wish you happy Thanksgiving. I hope you had a wonderful time with your family. I am glad for you having so much to be thankful for. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I am too and always thankful to God for so many things in my life. The first one is that I survive the war with my family and no matter what we went through back then we are still health and alive.
Your leaf photos are beautiful.
