Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody! Unfortunately, in America it seems our national day for observing thanks has just turned into "Turkey-day"--a day to eat ourselves full to the point of obscenity. Nevertheless, I still like to use some of the day to ponder all the things for which I am thankful.
I've never had everything that I wanted, but I always have had enough--and in an age when many on this good Earth are starving and homeless.
I've enjoyed mostly good health during my life; and when it failed me, I have had the miracle of excellent doctors and the skills of their minds and hands to heal me and return me to good health.
I have not always been the best parent that I should have been, but my children still honor and love me.
I have known the love of two good women; and am thankful that, each in their own time, were willing to share a big part of my life.
I have circled the sun 74 times and known the passing of an equal number of beautiful seasons.
Two small dogs and one cat have taught me much of God, myself, and what is really important in life. Some may think that is a silly thing, but I assure you those relationships have taught me many profound lessons about life.
I'm thankful for the creativity that has been such a big part of my life.
So many things to be thankful about; the list goes on and on.
And one of the things that I am especially happy and grateful about, is you, my cyber-friends. Your interest and encourgements have had a very positive impact upon my life. Thank you, my Friends!

tHANKS FOR THE MEMORIES. I have been reflecting on the past a great deal lately ... awake or dreaming. little details like pets, steam engines, people and events not thought of for near 7 decades, lizards in the sun, water jacks in hand dug wells ... and much more.
hugs to all.

This is a wonderful render, with intricate detail.
Where I live we do not celebrate Thanksgiving like you do. But it is such a beautiful tradition.
We should all count our blessings (is that the right expression?) because we have so much to be grateful for, if we only look around us.
All the best.
