Being Thankful

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a time to reflect, a time to remember and mostly a time to give thanks for all that we have. I am thankful for many things, mostly my family and friends, both real and online, I'm thankful for the bounty of the harvest that provides wonderful meals, I'm thankful for safe travels that let me get together with family and friends, I'm thankful for success stories, like Walter and Ace, I'm thankful for health and happiness, I'm thankful for all the blessings I've received this past year even in a difficult economy. It's times like this, when we sit back to think about it, when we really focus on what's important, that we realize that life isn't so much about the big screen TVs, the fancy cars, the fancy jobs, the luxury homes. It's about the connections we make with others, the humanity that we touch and that touch us. And I thank each of you that have read my humble little blog and reached out that hand (or paw) of friendship. It means the world to me!
