Psst! (Deborah whispers): over here. come closer. Closer. CLOSER! I have a secret. It’s supposed to be wordless today, but I feel the need to talk a bit. Would you mind terribly if I added words? Phew! I’m so glad you don’t mind! I just knew you were kindred spirits and would understand!
I would like to share one of my life’s mottoes with you, okay? This is the one that keeps me humble. Are you sure you don’t mind? Oh, thank you! I hope sharing it resonates with you. Okay, Here it is…
“There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.”
— Author Unknown
Count your Blessings! Reflect on the good things in your life, and move forward …ever forward with hope and faith. Believing always that it will all work out for the best. Until next week be well…

You’re welcome, Deborah! It was a delightful holiday and R&R.
I am heading down your way to celebrate thankfulness with you. Our thanksgiving happens in October, but as you said eloquently, there is always something to be thankful for. A wonderful reflection and following conversation.
Thank you so much, Rebecca! I’m glad you followed me down this path. 🥰

Thank you, Deb! I hope you have a lovely week-end!
Happy Thanksgiving, Deborah! The event is not custom in the Netherlands, but as the unknown author says: There is always, always, always something to be thankful for. And that applies to the whole world.
My thought too. I hope the rest of your week is just lovely!
What an absolutely delightful post, and timely, too! It reminds me of a story I heard as a little girl.
It’s a story about an old gentleman, who lost all his family, his friends, his money, his job (when my parents first told me the story, they were much more eloquent in describing how despondent he was…). He decided he had nothing more to live for, and he took an orange to eat as he climbed up a mountain, planning to commit suicide. On the way up, as he was peeling the orange, he threw the peels on the ground (bio-degradable, he wasn’t littering :D), and saw that an old man was picking up the peels and eating them. He stopped, looked at that man and realized, that he had more than others: he still had the orange. He turned back and went on to live a merry life.
Like your motto says: there’s ALWAYS something to be grateful for.
I’m grateful to have found a kindred spirit!
Me too! I love a happy ending! Happy Thanksgiving! 😀
I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday, Steve!
