Today’s Think Write Thursday is to write about Thanksgiving.
I am most thankful to have discovered Michelle recently and I participated in both Gratitude Week as well as Just Five Things.
So, today – I am going to challenge you all to spend some time today thinking about what or who you are thankful for.
It can be things – we are indeed a rich country with an abundance of things! Things like running water, heat, transportation, a multitude of shopping choices, with a multitude of items to choose from. Or things like a table full of food today – perhaps celebrating with friends and family.
But, what about being thankful for the intangible things. Things like kindness, good will, open-minds, open-hearts, love, and peace.
I will share my thankful list, but I will be thinking about this numerous times today – and as I learned with Michelle – in the course of a day, the things you think about can change dramatically. Powerfully. Exponentially. But, here is my start:
- Food that is so abundant and has been prepared with love
- Steve – who will share this quiet day with me
- Family – who while they might be far away, they are always close in my heart
- Quiet morning meditations that help me center my day and myself
- Pandora’s timely email yesterday with a list of Thanksgiving stations which will keep me from driving Steve crazy with Christmas music (rather now I can do that with Thanksgiving music instead!)
Today, whether you are with family and friends or are celebrating alone – I will be thinking about all of you, with deep thanks in my heart for our paths crossing – even if it is only here on the internet.
If you would like to join us on Think Write Thursdays, Carole and I would love to have you! You can sign up here.
Happy Thanksgiving, dear friends. May your day be overflowing with thankfulness.
Well said, Kat! I am thankful for my tea this morning, a Thanksgiving meal that will provide me with my absolute favorite leftovers, and most of all for the love and support from family and friends. I am thankful to have met you (even if it is virtually)!
Happy Thanksgiving Kat!!
Perfectly wonderful. My meditation this morning centered around gratitude and the idea that gratitude is like a muscle and we must exercise it and use it in order for it to grow. Today I am thankful for the senses – seeing and hearing and touching and tasting!
I’m grateful our paths have crossed, too – happy Thanksgiving, Kat!
I hope your Thanksgiving was all you hoped. We had a wonderful day with friends, friends who know how to share their abundant lives with love and joy. May Thanksgiving stay in your heart all weekend.
As with Margene, our Thanksgiving was also spent with friends and was lovely graced with delicious food. It’s the “intangibles” that will get us through each day and we know we’re going to be leaning on them very.heavily. For them and the special people in my life as you are, I am truly thankful. Merci, mon amie.
beautiful list and I agree on being thankful for intangible things. My favorite is when I am not worried about anything, those moments are golden for me 🙂
