Hello Everyone!
It is cold here in Florence. I even have a hat on to keep me a bit warmer.
LOL  You all know how I hate being cold.
I can hardly believe this year is almost over. I know that some of us, many of us have had a tough year. I know for me I will be happy to start 2011 in hopes that it will be better all the way around. With that said this post is for all of you. I truly do have so many thing to be thankful for
 even in the event of so much loss this year.
I am thankful for all of you who have stood next to me to hold me up.
I am thankful for all of you who sent love to keep me strong.
I am thankful for all of you who sent encouragement to keep me going.
I am thankful to all of you who shared your stories to keep us bonded.
How can I be sad or mad or upset, when I have all of you who care?
I can't.
I am so thankful this year for all of the blessings that have been sent my way.
To all of you THANK YOU.
I wish you the same blessings of love and caring. That this Thanksgiving you will be sharing it with your family and friends. That love and laughter fills your homes.
That we remember even the smallest of things to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
with love

  5. What a lovely post! It's not a tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, but there are so many things that I am thankful for...

    I am thankful for good health, a husband who loves me unconditionally, two beautiful children who make every day an adventure, and wonderful, wonderful friends like you who enrich my life and make me smile :-)

    Many blessings coming your way, my friend!
