Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to take time to reflect about all the things we have in our lives to be thankful for....so very many blessings. During the anticipation of the holidays I always like to have some quiet time to reflect about how fortunate I am! I make it a point to have Thanksgiving in my heart every night as I say my prayers and thank the Lord for all that I have.
My family~My life revolves around them, and my happiness is seeing their happiness. They bring me so much joy, delight, and laughter and there is no place I'd rather be then spending time with them!
My friends~Each and everyone of them, unique in their personalities, bring a richness to my life. To be able to talk, share dreams, hopes and wishes. We are there for each other through all the ups and downs of life, a constant support to each other. Some friends are seen frequently, others not a frequently as we would like, but always in our heart and minds.
My home Acorn Cottage~As they say in Danish it's very "hygge". In one of my cookbooks Danish Food and Cooking...they say there is no literal translation for hygge in the English language. It's best described as mental and physical contentment, the security and warmth connected with good feelings about home and family. Hygge includes eating and drinking with family and friends in a convivial atmosphere of generous hospitality and comfort. That it was my home brings me, a sense of coziness and contentment, like no other place on earth.
I wish for all of you, each and everyone one of you both near and far a wonderful Thanksgiving.
My favorite Thanksgiving was one that for our pray we stood around the table, holding hands, and one by one gave our thanks aloud for all to hear. Count your blessings, for you will find there are many. You are each loved, more than you know!
