Giving Thanks

I thought this was amusing. I didn't catch the first time I looked at it that the blind guy was carrying an axe.

Well, on this Thanksgiving Eve, I was thinking about giving thanks. I have a friend who has sent out an email each day for a week leading up to Thanksgiving. Each day a new subject with an accompanying list of things she is thankful for. I realized that I hadn't focused enough on those types of things - no matter how small - and had let negativity creep it's way in. There are so many little things to be grateful for and they help give perspective to the larger things.

So here is a list, in no particular order of some of the small things I am thankful for.
the smell of the first crisp day in autumn
freshly picked apples
my baby's laugh
uninterrupted sleep
clean laundry
free long distance
emails from people I know, written just for me duvets
voicemails from friends and family
good ideas
My husband's smile
a good book
funny jokes/comics
a new blanket of snow
a smiling cashier
anything baby blue
apple pie
office supplies
and many many more.....
Too many to write and some too personal to share. I will be more grateful and remind myself that things are always much better than we realize. Life is good. Share it and be happy. Happy Thanksgiving!
