  1. We even post at the same time haha. You find such great stuff. I love the hard knocks one. The inflatable cat is funny. The photo of your late parents is nice too. Quite a quirky watch. Is it bad the chocolate cake stands out too ha.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am grateful we have a day set aside in which think about and give thanks to all we are lucky to have in our lives. I am thankful for our friendship Ann. Happy Thanksgiving Ann, and to your family and blog readers. peace and love, Eleanor

  4. I’m thankful for your optimism and experiences. It may seem strange to be thankful for something others have but they’re qualities that, when shared and emulated, make a world we can all be thankful for.

  5. I love the picture of your parents. It reminds me of mine. They look so happy and young. Grateful for family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. I love this, especially pics of Aaron, Michael, you and your family. Your sister looks so lovely. Happy Thanksgiving to you and everybody celebrating.

    It is wonderful to see all the images that remind you what you are grateful for right now. From Byron Katie: Earth turned out to be the heaven I was longing for. There’s such abundance here now and always. I overflow with the splender, the generosity of it all. And I didn’t do anything for it but notice.
    Thinking of you today and grateful you are in my life!

  8. Wow, that’s a list and a half!
    Grateful for you and your blogposts, Ann.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  9. Trust is somethings I have a problem with I just find it hard to trust so many people it was only yesterday that the physio said to me that I must have a trust issue as he said relax and trust me I will not let your head fall but still I couldn’t I was tense and couldn’t relax. All that said I hope your Thanksgiving was spent with love ones and you had a great day
