While it is so easy to complain about all that is wrong in the world or hassles in our individual lives--for example, high gas prices, traffic, lines at the airport or the shopping mall (especially as "Black Friday" approaches), work, etc., Thanksgiving provides a chance to reflect and show gratitude for the good things.
This year, I am grateful for:
1. Good health
2. My husband
3. My aunts, uncles and cousins and great friends
4. The love I received from two wonderful parents whom I miss very much. Wish they could be here so we could still share Thanksgiving.
5. The chance to do what I love: Writing and teaching others how to research their genealogy through classes and presentations.
and many other blessings great and small!
What are you grateful for?
I will be taking a few days off from blogging to rest and enjoy the holiday.
Have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
