Thanksgiving 2016...

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.
Practicing gratitude is a very powerful tool to shift your attention on the things you
 don't have to the things you do have and this alone will make you feel better...

Thanksgiving is such a big celebration here in the USA.  It's one of the holidays where 
hundreds of thousands of travellers make their way back to home.  Everyone looks forward 
to being home with family and loved ones, and enjoying a very traditional Thanksgiving meal
 during this time of giving thanks.  Traditional Thanksgiving Meal.  Interesting tid bit, 
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare.  They are consumed in twelve
 minutes.  Half-times take twelve minutes.  This is not coincidence.

The year has had its ups and its downs.  Even so, there is so much to be 
grateful for;  I remind myself of that everyday.  I may not have everything I
 want, but I sure have all that I need right now.  For that I am grateful.

A new phase begins for us.  Temporary, but still something different.  I am grateful for that. 
 Happy to experience something new and to move on to a "better" place than I have been since
 my Brutus and Shadow died.  A thousand words couldn’t bring you back… I know this because
 I tried, neither could a thousand tears… I know this because I cried, you left behind a broken
 heart and happy memories too…but I never wanted memories…I only wanted you

For now wishing you all a good day and don't forget, as we express our
 gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to
 utter words, but to live by them"  Happy Thanksgiving to all. 
 Be safe, enjoy and yes put on those few extra pounds...

Thanksgiving is not yet even over and all the talk is about Black Friday and the 
DEALS!  Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States
traditionally the beginning of the Christmas Shopping season. It get's crazy.

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving after all is a word of action. Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day,
 but every day of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have..
