Giving Thanks

Every Thanksgiving I, along with the rest of the world, try to remember all the things I'm so lucky to have. I'm glad to be alive. I'm happy to be a woman and a mother. I'm thankful for my precious children and for good health. I'm thankful to have different talents that keep me busy. I appreciate having all my friends here and in my day to day life. I'm thankful the world is still a beautiful place to live. I'm thankful for art and music and good books; sunlight; fall leaves; all the life that surrounds me. I'm thankful for the human experience, though sometimes painful, always exquisite.


  1. And I'm saying, 'Thank you for Amy!' and our circle of blogging friends. You are so precious to me! Thank you for sending me your book - I'm loving reading it! Love Molly x

  2. Oh good! I'm happy to hear that. And of course I'm happy to have you as my friend Molly. You're so sweet, and a joy on this great earth.

  3. I've only been to ONE US style Thanksgiving Day celebration. That was in Grand Cayman back in about 1989, and I think my hostess was giving thanks for having FAR TOO MUCH MONEY. Your list of things is much more relevant. Well said. Well lived.

  4. Beautiful, Amy. I'm thankful for all my blogging friends, too!
