It's THANKFUL Thursday!
Autumn says to us to take a break and to look back on the proceeding months with gratitude
Just as people celebrated food harvests since practically the dawn of time, we can take this season to examine our own personal harvests and be thankful for what summer has sprouted
I don’t think it is a coincidence that the world becomes positively awesome and gorgeous as summer slips away. How can one not feel gratitude as the landscape comes alive with color and the oppressive heat gives way to crisp breezes?
I am thankful for this season of Autumn that allows me to slow down. For time to prepare for the holidays
For my family and the good times we were able to enjoy together throughout the summer
For the good food enjoyed by all as gardens produced an abundance of tomatoes, corn, peppers, squash and cucumbers
For the summer morning walks and afternoon dips in the pool
For the gorgeous sunrises and brilliant sunsets
For the birds that delighted me hour by hour as I watched them from my patio
For the birth of yet another grand son. ( The boys do outnumber the girls )
The blessings of summer were many and I know I've missed some important ones, but for these and all my blessings I am truly thankful.
I'm hoping your Thursday is filled with things to be THANKFUL for too!
