Thankful Thursday:Happy Thanksgiving

28 Nov

“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.”
― Thomas Goodwin
Today is Thanksgiving, a day we set aside to be thankful for our blessings, our families, and our friends. I try to be thankful every day, but it’s nice that we set aside a special day every year, make it a national holiday, and force people to eat massive quantities of turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie. Just kidding. I don’t think anyone is forced.

I spent the day talking to friends and family on the phone and took a couple of walks. It was such a beautiful sunny day, it was a shame not to take advantage of it. Old man winter is not far behind. My special holiday meal was a big bowl of Greek yogurt with apples, bananas, and granola. Not as yummy as my usual Snug on the Square yogurt parfait, but pretty close.

So, here are some cool pics of what I see every day on my walks. You can see why I am thankful for my new house, new friends, and new neighborhood.

The horses were enjoying their Thanksgiving meal.

This little pond and fountain is a favorite spot to visit.

One of my little duck friends was quacking and taking a swim.

I started out my day the way I’ll end my day, talking to friends and family, writing, sipping a cup of tea, and being thankful.
