Hi all....well this post is sort of a hi to all the bloggers in America who are celebrating Thanksgiving today/tomorrow. My friend Amy over here has been encouraging her readers to list what we are thankful/grateful for throughout the month of November and I must say, that I have found it to be a very encouraging and uplifting thing to do. It is often so easy to focus on the neagtive things going on throughout the world...I mean, even the news tends to have a negative rather than positive slant.

From my understanding, Thanksgiving came about from giving thanks for a plentiful harvest and for abundant blessings. (I am happy to be corrected if I am off track by those who do actually celebrate Thanksgiving)
So today I am going to say a big THANKS to those of you in the US whose blogs I read and get so much encouragement from. I wish you all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING....I hope you have a blessed day with your loved ones.

Today I am thankful for:
  • new friends and contacts made through blogging and other internet groups, particularly my Yarra Valley Scquilters friends
  • old and faithful friends who have supported and loved me through thick and thin
  • the plentiful supply of food we have available...may it continue to be so
  • the promise of continued rain....
  • new life happening just outside my loungeroom window by way of a nesting honeyeater
  • and so so much more....

"...For the Lord your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete." Deuteronomy 16:15

Hi Lisa,
Thank you including us Yarra Valley Scquilters in your list of 'thankfulness'. You are certainly in mine.
