Happy Thanksgiving!

Whatever you’re doing for Thanksgiving, I wish you well. I hope that you and your family enjoy counting your blessings! Because especially at this time of year AND in 2020, we need to be thankful for the little things and the big ones. My priority being health followed by love.

I talked with my brother this morning and he surprised me. Yesterday he was not happy about my not attending the Thanksgiving feast at his house. But today it seems he’s had a change of heart for which I’m grateful. So I’m adding it to my ever growing list of gratitude.

I’ve had a bunch of friends reach out via text to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving and I’ve done the same as well. I really am grateful for all the supportive friendships I’ve made, especially since the divorce. It’s funny how some friendships have fallen away and others have deepened. And some have appeared out of nowhere and we’ve gotten really close which wouldn’t have probably happened if I were still married.

Life’s strange, isn’t it? I’d like to think that We’re all just walking each other home (quote by Ram Dass) so we encounter all different people on the way. Some we keep meeting up with and with others we are only together for a little bit of the journey. While others stay on the path with you for decades.

On Thanksgiving I am grateful for all those whom I’ve shared the path and I thank you all for being a part of my blog family.

Happy Thanksgiving! Stay healthy and safe!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Glad your brother changed his feelings. No one needs the added pressure at this time. Ours was quiet too.

    Happy thanksgiving.
    I love Ram Dass. All his old talks….I could listen to them for hours on end. There is something about his voice that stirs my soul.

    I’m in Canada, so we had a normal Thursday yesterday. I’m back to working form home and my son has been switched to online learning, so my kids and I are together all day every day for now. It’s great.

    I have the same experience as you. I have some really great new friendships since my divorce that are truly meaningful. I have many who fell away…some made me sad…but life moves on.

    Have a lovely weekend.

      I hope you have a lovely weekend Anne. I think Canada’s Thanksgiving was awhile ago right? So if I missed it, Happy Belated. Enjoy having your son home with you.
      As for friendships, it’s sometimes sad for sure, but that’s the way it goes I guess.
