Thankful

I am thankful for.....
cherished family and friends that gather......

and for the peaceful life I live each day.....

for the sweet, simple things in this life that cheer me.....


and the surprises that come along the way.....



And my wish is that you find your cup running over
with all good things to come your way.....




and that you find yourself surrounded
with love and blessings
on this very happy
Thanksgiving Day!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Kathleen,
Here’s wishing you & your family a very happy Thanksgiving!!!
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in India. But I’ve heard the expats from the US & Canada do have get-togethers to celebrate the occasion.
