Thursday Thoughts....

Today  in America we celebrate Thanksgiving. I am grateful and feel very blessed for my family and friends.
I am thankful all the people in my life everyday!!
If you ask my grandson who is 2 1/2 years old what is Thanksgiving, he will tell you "you eat turkey and get fat". Well, he is partially right.
It got me thinking, I wonder how many family's take the time at the dinner table and to give thanks for more than just food.

I am thankful for life and all that comes my way. For the wonderful and not so wonderful. I am grateful for the many obstacles thrown my way.  Without the many bumps in the road I may not have met the many wonderful people who have touched my life and continue to be in my life.

I will end with the definition of "thanksgiving" from Dictionary.com


the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God.
an expression of thanks, especially to God.
a public celebration in acknowledgment of divine favor or kindness.
a day set apart for giving thanks to God.
initial capital letter Thanksgiving Day.
