Things To Be Thankful For

As Thanksgiving arrives for those of us here in the United States, I'm reflecting on things that I'm thankful for.  Certainly I'm thankful that my husband and I both have jobs at a time when many people do not.  I'm thankful for our home and that the vehicles are running well at the moment.  We live in one of the most prosperous countries in the world which is also a blessing.  Our loved ones are blessed with good health, as are we.  Really, our lives are richly blessed and I'm glad that we can see that.

Of course, there are three furry little bodies here that I'm thankful for, too.  I'm thankful that they followed me through the kitchen, offering taste testing and clean up services in the kitchen as I made pies and cookies to take to our meal today.  Each one of them offers us their own unique gifts.

Thanks to Lilac for reminding us that life is best enjoyed at your own pace.  She reminds us that life is best when lived to the fullest, whether that's with a good nap in the sunshine or a burp in the face after a good meal.  Lilac believes that if you love somebody, you should let them know with a good snuggle and nose in the face if need be to get their attention.

Thanks to Blueberry for letting us enjoy the bliss of just being together.  She lives to make us laugh and will actually smile to herself when she thinks she's gotten a good one in and she loves to keep us on our toes.  Blueberry believes that you show your love by making your loved ones happy and she makes sure that she does that daily.

Thanks to Bunny for being her sweet little self.  She just can't help being sweet, snuggly and adorable.  Bunny believes that if you love somebody, you stay as close to them as you possibly can and hold on to them with both paws if you have to.

We hope that everyone finds something to be thankful for today, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or it's just another day at work for you.  Sometimes we all need to count our blessings to remember how rich in spirit we truly are.  Did I mention that three greyhounds will be thankful for turkey leftovers later today as well?
