Giving Thanks

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!
