I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.

Now that is a good word! I am very thankful for you. Blessings.
Thank you Michael. I’m glad to be a member of your blogging community. Enjoy the week as we remember to be thankful.
God reminder, Oneta. Love the picture, too – very festive! 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!
And if you will be getting together with any children, check out my new children’s book, “From Grumpy to Grateful,” being posted on my blog one day at a time. Last chapter will be posted tomorrow. Feel free to share with one and all.
I went to your blog today but I did not notice this. I’ll run back and check it out. Have a great week.
I didn’t find it.
Happy Thanksgiving Oneta—due to flip floppy Covid tests, we’ve opted to err on the side of caution and not head off to Savannah to meet the kids this year— rather we’ll be home for the first tim ever, by ourselves—it will be weird and I was really bummed about it yesterday but I’m keeping calm and carrying on- and that will include cooking on a much smaller scale!
Have a restful day. I remember a Thanksgiving Day when we were alone, a long time ago. Obviously it was not a happy one for me to remember so long. I don’t remember the circumstances but I do know where we lived. We moved from there in 1982. So…a long time. I have taken the happy ones for granted.
Good reminder to heed the thanksgiving business.
Yes, we don’t want to be so busy at the Thanksgiving business that we forget giving thanks. 😀
So grateful for you, Oneta and your wisdom and inspiration. I hope you and your family shares a wonderful day of thanks together.
I am ever so grateful to have you as a member of my blogging community. Your talent is outstanding. I am thankful. The moose today was quite original.
Thanks for your wonderful comment. I appreciate you so much. Blessings to you.
I am so THANKFUL that I can be joyously and abundantly THANKFUL to my Lord without a special day to say it. THANK YOU FATHER and thank you Oneta for joyous posts and for all the rest of the bloggers who enrich my life. THANK YOU ALL.
I pass your words on in complete agreement. Thankfulness is appropriate every day. And thanks blogging friends. Have a great day today and everyday.
That’s a lot of “busy” and this is great! Thank you for this and for your blog!
Thank you, Nick. I am pleased every time I see you pop up on my notifications. Have a blessed and prosperous day.
Have a nice Thanksgiving Oneta.
Enjoy with family.
In thirty plus years, this is the first time we will have Thanksgiving without friends and family.
You probably wrote what I said to Julie above, but just in case you didn’t I will tell this over again. Sometime before 1982 Sammy and I had an “alone” Thanksgiving Day. It made a memory that sticks. I don’t remember the circumstances. Perhaps it was for the good to help me remember those who suffer that day without spouse or family. Be blessed with doing something outstanding to bless others even though the day is different. Weather is supposed to be nice here. Hope yours is. Describe that lovely hike you will likely take. Make it lovely enough to offer the Queen but simple enough to offer me. 😀
No, I did not read your response to Julie before commenting.
Daughter called in the morning. She was sad that she was going to miss it.
Took me back many years. My second Thanksgiving. I was invited by my classmate to spend the Thanksgiving evening with her family and I was sitting in a hospital corridor with my two weeks old first born crying incessantly for milk ( my kids were all breast fed) and my wife in emergency surgery for post delivery complications. For next three hours did not even know what’s going to happen. Missed the Thanksgiving, no way to contact my friend/s (pree cell phone days), alone in a cold hospital corridor with bone chilling cold outside and a crying infant on my lap.
Yes, I have got much to thank for including having you as a friend to fight from time to time.
Isn’t life interesting?
I also would not have forgotten a Thanksgiving like that! I hope that infant has rewarded you. I’m sure my reason for being alone was caused by nothing more than my husband getting in a huff about doing what the family was doing. Joking. Maybe it was me who was in a huff. We did try to find a restaurant open to no avail. Not one we could agree on anyway. And thanks for our mutual respect and suspicion regarding each other. I know you are going to say “Suspicion? Why?” Go ahead and say it. 😀
A little doubt,
A little suspicion,
Spices of life,
Keeps it alluring,
Who am I to ask,
What makes the curry tasty,
As long as
it is well spiced.
