Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who has or will read my blog! I am very grateful to you for taking the time to consider my thoughts. It’s a special form of “listening” and I appreciate those who listen to me and to each other. We can learn so much from the wisdom of those in our lives.

I have been fortunate to enjoy an abundantly blessed Thanksgiving Day. However, I am acutely aware that there are those who are suffering on this Day of Thanks. I send my love to all of you and ask that you be wrapped in the comforting arms of the angels.

For the last two years around Thanksgiving, my mother and I have made long lists of what we are grateful for. Last year we shared them with each other. We still need to share our lists for this year and I look forward to doing this very soon. Sharing them helps us to rejoice and celebrate together.

I am inspired this year to spend some time slowly pondering my list and thanking God for each blessing. I lit a candle to set the mood…

I just reviewed my list and gave thanks. It was really a great way to start reviewing the past year and to prepare for the next. I encourage you to try it. You may find that you have more blessings than you realized before you started. It is also very helpful to share your list with someone who knows what you have been through during the year.

I again thank God for each one of you and for this Day of Thanks on the Journey!
