Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks for everything that makes our lives special.

Here are some of the things I am thankful for:

My husband
My friends
My cats
Good food
Diet beverages
Being safe and warm in my house
Being able to buy groceries
Dining out
Summer days
Going to the beach
My sense of smell
My health
My leaf blower
Being loved
Evening strolls
The freedom to be myself

Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!


  1. Ours was last month but wishing you and yours a wonderful Thansgiving.

  2. Hi Linda .. I'm the other Hilary and we don't have one over here .. but I am thankful for many many things - family, friends, bloggers and a fairly healthy existence - though the glass of vino looks good!!

    Have a lovely time - Hilary

  3. Fabulous!! Happy Thanksgiving, Linda!

  4. I particularly like that you are thankful for the freedom to be yourself. I think that is very profound. Happy Thanksgiving, Linda.

  5. You are clearly blessed with abundance and because you know it and are grateful, you'll keep being blessed with more. Yep. It's just that easy. ;)

  6. Jayne- I just need to remember to count those blessings frequently!

  7. Boy, we were on the same page, weren't we?

    I loved all of these "thankful things," but my favorite was the last one, "the freedom to be myself."

    The one that fascinated me was "My sense of smell." That's an interesting one.

    I recently ran into this guy at a holiday party. He doesn't have a sense of smell and so he can't really taste things. It made sense that these two "senses" are so connected. On the other hand, it didn't seem to bother him. He ate the sushi and I didn't:~)

  8. Sara- I lost my sense of smell after I had a cold one time. I don't remember how long that lasted, but it didn't affect my ability to taste food. I just couldn't smell it. I would walk in where Mom was cooking and ask "what's for dinner?" Oh, and I wouldn't eat sushi either!
