It is not something you search for and so seldom find-
It's just waking up and beginning the day
By counting our blessings and kneeling to pray.
It's giving up thoughts that breed discontent
And accepting what comes as a "gift heaven-sent."
It's giving up wishing for things we have not
And making the best of whatever we've got.
It's knowing that life is determined for us,
And pursuing our tasks without fret or fuss-
For it's by completing what God gives us to do
That we find real contentment and happiness too.

Dear online friends,
You brought smile, laughter, hope, helped wiped my tears and lend me your broad shoulder for support.

This Thanksgiving I wish you and yours another wonderful memory to cherish.
Thank you so so much for the most treasured friendship
