Giving Thanks.

I don't know what happens, but I get turned inward sometimes where all I can think about is me- what I'm feeling, what I need to be happier, how I don't have time to do this or that... yadda, yadda, yadda.....

So Thanksgiving and this whole holiday season helps me turn outward again- almost inside out- to see family and all of my blessings and the Hope that I have.

This time of year makes me want to be better for my family and friends and job. It makes me want to exercise, read and journal more. So I hope that this year the inwardness....will just stop.

Pictures are the best way for me to give thanks. I am thankful for:

that guy in the stripes & for my sis-in-law & my baby...but esp. for that guy in the stripes

people who drive in the middle of the night

family that would and does do anything for you

the memories of these great older people

people who know me (& like me) no matter what

people who give their lives away

family history and legacy & getting to know people better the older you get


these kids. but especially the moms of these kids.

this little girl
and this little girl.
I feel very turned outward now. What a difference not thinking about me can make...... Happy Thanksgiving.
