HAPPY THANKSGIVING
Steve Basting a Thanksgiving Turkey

I want to wish everyone a very wonderful holiday season. Here are some thoughts on what Thanksgiving means to me.

Today is a gift, which is why it's called the present.
Honesty to and within yourself is part of what defines you.
Ascertain your unique role in life.
Never expect more of others than you yourself would give.
Know that with tough questions, there are no right or wrong answers; only right choices.
See that your passions determine your priorities.
Go and live each day as your defining moment.
If you want to know the opinions of others, ask.
Values help determine your path in life; don't say or do things that are inconsistent with yours.
If you measure yourself by others, you will only lament what you don't have.
Never fear change; embrace it but hold onto what shouldn't change.
Give thanks for what really matters in life; the love of family and friends, health and happiness. For having this, we all lead rich and fulfilling lives.

Wishing you all a joyous, healthy and meaningful Thanksgiving. Thank you all for being part of my life.

Happy Thankgiving Millie!!!!!!!
 
What a wonderful way to express the thoughts of Thanksgiving. Thank you for sharing Millie and may your day be filled with all things good.
 
Very nicely written, Millie. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
 
Happy Thanksgiving, Millie. And thank you for your generosity of spirit!
 
Happy Thanksgiving to you Millie and Steve and your family. I have to say that I certainly give thanks for my extended blogging family and all that they have brought to my world this past year and look forward to next year for more of the same.
 
Another insightful list to post on the fridge:) Thank you, Millie! And have a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
 
Happy Thanksgiving, Millie. We won't be celebrating until tomorrow, so I'm sitting home reading journals today!
 
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Millie!
 
That was a meaningful list, Millie. Wishing you, Steve and Carol a wonderful Thanksgiving day and I'm sure glad you're part of my life. It was a joy meeting you back in June.
 
Wonderful food for thought, Millie. May you and your family enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday.
 
Happy Thanksgiving to you....and Steve looks so boyish!

Hi Dan

The reason Steve looks so boyish is, that picture was taken sixteen years ago. It was taken at Carol and Steve's first Thanksgiving in their new home.

Wishing you a happy holiday season, have fun, sing and have lots of goodies!! ;-)
 
We're always telling our kids this so thanks for the reinforcement. Something I'll print out & put up on the fridge. Cheers!
 
Ha! I'm laughing because of your comment note about the photo of Steve being 16 years old. He's STILL boyish - I wouldn't have guessed he's old enough to have been with Carol for 16 years :-)

Happy very belated Thanksgiving, Millie.
