Thanksgiving Week is here . . .



Thanksgiving week is here!  Thursday is the BIG day.  As I have been reading my friends posts there seems to be a lot of thanksgiving going on each and every day.  I think we're beginning to see we don't have to wait until Thanksgiving day to be thankful and grateful.  It's my humble opinion that we can choose to be grateful for some thing - some person - some gift - each and every day we live.  I also believe that as we increase our gratefulness - our happiness increases proportionally!

YES, THANKSGIVING!
I have noticed more folk being thankful than being hungry for the big meal. That is good. We will be in Florida for the big day, I am THANKFUL for that.

Michaele said...

That is so true. A fellow blogger has a notebook and EVERY NIGHT she writes down things she was thankful for during her day. I hope you have a wonderful day planned for Thursday.

Jeanie said...

This is a great reminder. You are so right that thinking of all we have to be thankful for makes us happy.

So true to be thankful every day! I know you are such an advocate of this, Sandie; it helps me to be appreciative and thankful too! May it be a good week ahead as you get ready for Thanksgiving Day!

Love that! Fear is a mind-killer, face it! Great word in addition to the thankfulness! Many blessings!

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Excellent idea.... To increase our thankfulness.

Because I think that goes hand-in-hand with noticing the lovely things, which we have to be thankful for.

In other words... with Mindfullness.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Sandie! I love the quote!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I agree with you the more we are thankful, the more it seems we have to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving from my house to yours!

Thanksgiving week and we are preparing for it! Amber thought we would be going back home for Thanksgiving but the traffic is SO bad!! (We came down here one year and it was bumper to bumper!!!) So we are staying here. Amber's dad (my ex)and his wife are also joining us. A Table of 6...both sets of Amber's parents plus amber and Mike. First time we have all seen each other at the same time since the wedding. This is Jesse's first time to see the babies! It sounds kinds funny but I have prayed about it and have perfect peace that all will go well. Amber's happy - and that's very important!! ***Now how do I word this in my blog???
STILL and ALL ----SO much to be thankful for~~

Nonnie said...

and you are right, it shouldn't take one day to bring out people's thoughts of gratefulness. It should be an attitude we wear daily.

Well said Sandie. Every day is thanksgiving but it sure is a good thing we don't eat the whole big meal every day

We don't celebrate thanksgiving here in the UK, but that doesn't mean I'm not thankful!

Have a wonderful day!!

Granny Annie said...

Hope your Thanksgiving is as full of delight as you are always:)

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

While I love Thanksgiving, we certainly don't need a special day (or even a month) to be thankful. We should live with an attitude of gratitude each and every single day. ;-)

Jim said...

I think it is wonderful to have a special day to give thanks to the Lord for our countries blessings.
