Thursday Ramble - What Am I Thankful For

For my readers in the United States, and that is most but not all of my readers, Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you are able to spend the day in a way that brings you peace, tranquility, and an opportunity to reflect on all of the good things.  Thanksgiving as a holiday, is a derivative of harvest festivals, the tradition in north America dates back to my far distant ancestors in the Plymouth Colony - the religious zealots from the Mayflower - estimates are there are 35,000,000 descendants somebody was doing something on those cold winter nights.  

I have much to be thankful for:
  • My sweet bear
  • I am able to love, and be loved 
  • I have a safe and comfortable home
  • I am in decent health
  • I am able to read, write, learn, share
  • I have a few toys that I enjoy
  • The shelves in my local grocery store are full 
  • I have enough to live on
  • I have a job that challenges me, 
  • My work makes a difference in the lives of others
  • I have a life outside of my work, that I enjoy 
  • I have a cadre of blogging friends, that I enjoy interacting with everyday 
  • I have a small circle of close friends
  • There are few fears in my life
  • For those brave ancestors  
Take care if yourself, Be kind to yourself, Be humble, Be thankful for all that we have, be generous, 
THANK YOU for being a part of my life for another trip around the sun.

    That is very nicely expressed and my idea of what Thanksgiving is all about, but then the mayhem of gross consumerism begins the next day. While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, yet, we too have Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
