Today is a great day to be thankful.
I would love to know what you are thankful for at this very moment.
please let me know....
LARGE things or small everyday things....
We all have something we can be thankful for...
no matter what kind of day we are having or what our situation is
{ I would love to do a post later on this week using some of your responses}

I'm thankful that there's lime in my gin and tonic tonight instead of lemon. It makes a change. Happy Thankgiving, Koralee, and thanks (as well) for your uplifting presence.

Hello Koralee, I think right this minute, today, and many days, I am so thankful for the gift of Nature God gave us... I have been through some hard times in my life (who hasn't) and the quiet calm and beauty of Nature and All God's precious little creatures has sustained me... Bisous... Julie Marie

Hello Koralee,

*I'm thankful that God created me as a Free & Creative Spirit that believes that anything is possible..."Believing is Seeing"...

*I'm thankful that I can find joy in the small things..watching the birds, squirrels, chipmunks, nature in general...

*I'm thankful to have a 5 star husband!!

*I'm thankful to have my dream home...

*I'm thankful to have precious souls in blogland that really care! No one has to ever feel alone. :0) I always think about in my much younger years how so many really were alone with no one to connect with...cyberspace has really been a blessing to so many.

There's so much more....I'm thankful that even on a bad day I still have the joy, love and grace of God to comfort me.

Thanks for the great post,
Hugs to you,
Stephanie

At this moment, I am thankful for the bowl of soup that I just finished. I have a favorite from a Florida hotel, and I was able to duplicate it. I am also thankful for this beautiful day.

I'm thankful for my family - my 2 darling girls and my husband, but also my sister, brother and my parents. I'm also thankful that you reminded me to be MORE thankful!

And I'm thankful that thanks to blogging I get to learn new things everyday - like the fact that Canada & the US obviously have different thanksgiving times. Thanksgiving is a wonderful thing to celebrate, and I wish we had it here in New Zealand

Oh my gosh, your blog is gorgeous. So glad I dropped by from SITS.
I'm thankful for the meal we just had, sitting round the table eating chicken stew and dumplings; the kids loved the dumplings which I made for them for the first time and it made me happy.
I'm thankful that they will try new things and always appreciate that, although I love to cook and want to feed them well, it does take time and effort.
My eldest daughter put down her fork and said "mum, this is a delicious meal. Thank you so much". While this is never, ever expected, it truly makes me smile and I'm thankful that I have children who know how to express themselves and have no fear of doing so.
I'm also thankful for my husband who has just went to buy dessert as I have flu and little energy.
:O) Thank you for this; it feels lovely to share.
