Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.

I am thankful for so many things in my life: Love, friendship, family, security, peace in my heart. The past year has brought me so many amazing things, so many gifts, blessings and rewards.

Today, as I reflect on the history of this holiday and its roots in giving thanks for a successful and bountiful harvest season, I am struck by all those people who have witnessed loss and in many cases are struggling to survive. We can all help, even in a small way. For those less fortunate, please spare a moment to think of them today and if you are able, contribute to their betterment in some small way.

May you all have a most wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Fiona! Thanks for wishing we Yanks that. It's been a while. I hope you are well!

Well said, Fi. Those are the kind of thoughts that come over me while we Brits are all stuffing our faces and emptying our wallets at Christmas - well, the fortunate ones anyway. Nothing wrong with a good feast occasionally, especially if it brings families together, but I always think there are worthwhile things to be doing as well in the season of goodwill. - Not that I always put that into practice in a very big way, but I do try:-)

A belated thank you Fiona, even if this yank is transplanted down under for a while.
