Thanksgiving Thursday

"Not what we say about our blessings,
but how we use them,
is the true measure of thanksgiving."

It is Thanksgiving Thursday again and I am happy to take the time to reflect on the things that mean so much to me. Last week I started my post with the quote by Oprah Winfrey saying that we should keep a grateful journal and write five things we are thankful for each night. I wrote the five things I am most thankful for, which started with Little Chick and my family. I then gave thanks to having security (shelter, food, etc.) and for the gift of being able to see and hear this wonderful earth we are blessed with. I could and would always start with these on my list of five things. So this week I will of course put Little Chick and family first and then choose a different four. Here are my five blessings I am truly grateful for today:

1.) Little Chick and my family.
2.) Air conditioning (it was over 90 degrees today and humid).
3.) The ability to read.
4.) To live in a country where we have freedom and women's voices can be heard.
5.) To have a family who loves me so much!

What are your five blessings you are thankful for today?


  1. I love what you posted as number 4, I was just thinking about that today! I've been reading a book that goes back to the Civil War days and it made me think about all those men and women that fought for civil rights and wouldn't they be proud to see how much life has changed for everyone these days. Great things to be thankful for!

  2. Oh Air conditioning! a big thank to it from me too. Its sooo soo hot here that ant do without it. Love ur post!
