Thankfulness is the quickest path to joy !

Jefferson Bethke

October 18th -grateful, thankful and blessed.

Be thankful for what you have, you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you never have enough. 

Oprah Winfrey

Once again I’m thankful for my health and that of my family.  We've come through another  week safe and sound.

In case you’re wondering about some things to be thankful for maybe this list will help.

10 things to be thankful for this fall

Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere 
The vibrant colors of falling leaves
The Crisp morning air
Pumpkin Spice Latte’s
Apple picking and the first fresh bite of a fresh apple
Picking and carving pumpkins
Wearing fall scarves, sweaters and boots
Thinking of Halloween costumes
Fall sunsets
Fall sunrises

It’s such a beautiful and colorful time of year that the list seems unending.

With October more than halfway over we have to appreciate these fall days.
Soon it will be November and then I’ll be celebrating thankfulness the entire month.  It’ll be hard not to repeat some things, but I’ve no doubt that there will be at least 30 things to be thankful for the 30 days of November.

If you didn’t know we’ve been locked down for over 200 days now and chances are we are ready for it to be over.  The end of this year is coming and I know we’ll all be thankful when it’s over.  

Life’s under no obligation to give us what we expect.  W take what we get and are thankful it’s no worse than it is.

Always something to be thankful for. Right now I'm thankful that my pets are doing better, that I have a roof over my head and food on the table. I'm most thankful that my family is safe and healthy!

"If you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll never have enough." That's pretty darn profound!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow ... He's in the driver's seat and already knows the way.
