Happy Thanksgiving!

it's Turkey time again - that day of the year when I remember how desperately I need to renew my desire for a healthy diet.

Also that time of year when I take a few minutes to reflect on how many things I am thankful for... last year (if I remember correctly) I did a whole ABCs of thankfulness.... that was a lot of things.

You know what - I don't need that many this year. Not that I'm having bitterness and resentment or anything. I think I'm just as thankful this year....

I've just learned (remembered) one important detail:

It's all thanks to God. Every little thing I have that is good - Every person that touches my life - Every personal achievement - Everything. It's all thanks to Him.

This Thanksgiving I'm going to focus on seeing His hands and how they have touched my life. How they have brought me to where I am, who I'm with... and you know what - I'm pretty happy with all of that. I might whine - I might complain - I might annoy you as much as Bella Swan annoys any guy that tries to read those Twilight books... but I like life - it's been pretty good to me all around.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you - with the sincere hope that life is treating you well also!

I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving. I'm sure I'm on that list of things you are thankful for.

Wonderful. I love the concept of what hands can do and how we use our hands -- I've been a little preoccupied with that as well lately. A lot of hands have helped me over the years, and I am enjoying being in the position to return the favor a little bit. So count me in on your Thanksgiving Crusade and have a happy one!

Your words here remind me, again, of all that I have, all that I am. And I am grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
