In the blink of an eye the pumpkin decorations will soon disappear to be replaced with Christmas attire…another changing of the seasons…so last night Ben built a fire and we reflected on what we had to be thankful for before Christmas pushed itself into our homes and hearts.
Look what our Thanksgiving dinner looked like…Martha Stewart, a.k.a. Vickie, the best neighbor in the world, brought enough food on two plates to feed an army and I did my best to clean the plate. She then returned with three different slices of pie each! Oh my! Out of this world!
We had just finished eating our first round of dinner when Lee, Vikki, Rhodes and Vikki’s family stopped by to visit on the way to Susan’s for their Thanksgiving. What fun!
As I glanced through my Iphone I noticed an ad from Tuesday Morning and thought to myself…’Now that is an ad worth remembering”- Good job Tuesday Morning!”
Let me tell you ‘If my heart is as full as my plate‘ I can gladly boast that I am ALL heart’ …because nothing else would fit on my plate! 🙂
I like this quote on gratitude and how differently a person’s life is lived when he/she is filled with gratitude each and every day.
“True gratitude is a recognition of nature’s flow and grace. It is an understanding that everything that I have is a blessing that was given to me – my possessions, my intellect, creativity and skills. I give because I am passing on what I have been given. The universe’s natural flow unlocks when my giving expresses the recognition and deep gratitude of what I have received.” – Preeta
So until tomorrow…A short post this evening…because watching the fire and trying to finish this delicious piece of pumpkin pie has laid me completely immobile (I feel like a beached whale)…and for that I am in debt and gratitude for family company and neighborly feasts…best Thanksgiving ever!

Doodle…I found the perfect planter on the other apartment side for your beautiful plant Wednesday and we added a little light to the other side…one last show stopper for Mr. Pumpkin until next year.
Thanksgiving is over…but thankfulness and gratitude are a 365-day attitude adjustment!
