Thanksgiving Reflection


  These days Thanksgiving often gets lumped into the mix with the next two big events of the year, Christmas and New Years, and collectively known as The Holidays. 

  As in, ‘What are you doing for The Holidays?’ or  ‘Do you have your Holiday Shopping done?’.

   Whoever had the foresight to stick Thanksgiving on the calendar where it is was brilliant!  

   At the gateway to what can seem ‘the most stressful time of year’ — the weeks leading up to the Big Two — we get Thanksgiving Day, a day to remind us to be grateful for the many gifts and blessings of the other 11 months of year. 

  Wherever you are, formal holiday or not, 
a day focused on gratitude 
is a good thing to observe. 


  I want to tell you all that, today and every day I am grateful to you, my blogging friends, for reading my words, for sharing your thoughts and lives with me over the last nine years!



  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Cynthia. I hope that your annual feast cooks to perfection and that you enjoy the company of family and friends. I just read a piece that cautions everyone not to talk about politics!

  2. In the UK we seem to have imported the worst aspects of the beginning of the Holidays - no Thanksgiving, too much Black Friday! I hope you all have a pleasant Thanksgiving.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving for tomorrow. I hope you manage to share some special time with your family.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you! Hope you have a wonderful day. I sent Bob a package this morning as I am certain she gets overlooked:)

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Cynthia. Hope you enjoy the day with your mom and they serve you a delicious meal. Just caught up with your last two posts. I love that green snake! That is the longest one I have ever seen. I am cooking the usual...turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, broccoli casserole, sweet potato casserole, and pie...haven't decided on the pie yet. :)

  6. Happy Thanksgiving to you . Thanksgiving should be a very special day for reflections.

  7. Have a peaceful day! Linda in Kansas

  8. Have a lovely day up there in the Northern part of our world.

  9. We don't have that day here, but wish you a nice time!
