Gratitude


solo post - L

"Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul." ~Henry Ward Beecher

On this Thanksgiving eve I will lie in my warm bed, with my eyes closed tight, a kitty at my feet, and reflect back on the year at all the many things I have to be grateful for and say a prayer of thanksgiving to my Lord. Tomorrow blessings will be said, good food and conversation will be shared as we gather at the table with friends and family to eat our feasts of thanksgiving, there will be laughter and games, and then there will be goodbye hugs. Let's remember to keep a thankful heart not only tomorrow but throughout the year and to express our gratitude to those we love at every opportunity we get.
I want to take this opportunity, tonight, to tell you that I am grateful for the friendship we share and to wish you all a delightful Thanksgiving surrounded by love and filled with happiness.
good night.

L, this picure evokes a memory from my grandmother's home. It is the green and the hint of pink that take me back to her bathroom where the big green enamel, clothes' basket stood high atop a wooden box. Her bathroom always comforted me because she and my grandad would bath together every night and I would play with the cat in the lounge and listen to them talking and laughing together. So it really does take me back to a place filled with love.

I too am thankful for you.
