You're right Minnie, many have a lot to be grateful for if they can share the holidays. I too miss past times like that.

Hope our Gang here has a nice Thanksgiving.

Minnie, so true! Do you have any family
to share Thanksgiving with? If not, I
hope you and some friends will enjoy the
day. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Minnie! We don't have a big family gathering at Thanksgiving either, but we do so much during December that I'm thankful for a quiet time before the Christmas entertaining begins.

RE: be grateful

minnie ...yes, a time to remember 'blessings' ...not only family but friends ...& even our Internet friends here on the forum. So many of us are sending daily good thoughts & prayers to our 'luvs' who just lost her husband this past week. So, I, too, am counting blessings...Happy Thanksgiving! Jeanne S.

Minnie, It is important to be grateful for 'Blessings' during the holidays.
It is easy to forget during the hustle and bustle of preparations.
As Jeanne said, Many of us are sending daily good thoughts and prayers to 'luvs'.
My heart is aching for her.
I hope you will not be alone on Thanksgiving.

Minnie, bless you at Thanksgiving and every day. Memories of past holidays together can make us both happy and sad. Mainly we need to do as you said and just be greatful for those sweet memories and to try to help make good memories for our family and friends.

Jeanne and Nana 2010, thank you for your thoughts of me. I had planned to have Thanksgiving here this year and told the family I still wanted to do that. My son said I didn't need to under the circumstances, but I told him I REALLY needed to. Having things to plan and work on is what has helped me over the last couple of years and that's exactly what I need now.

I'm so greatful for all of you and the fun diversions you offer to all of us who need it. Hopefully, someday I'll be ready to do some things I can share too.

Love you all, Luvs

Thank you guys for this thread.

Without going into detail, three years ago, my mentally-challenged child and I were living in my truck and a women's shelter. We lost everything...including family.

During this time, and still today, I made some great 'internet' friends...don't know what I would have done without them.

There are times that the 'little things' are GREAT blessings. Let us never get so busy in life, that we forget that. True, at times, we have to look but we can always find blessings.

caught my attention and I love the fact that you never
gave up.

Punk,
Believe me, there were times I wanted to give up; but, I kept hearing this small voice saying, 'the best is yet to come.'
I have a strong spiritual faith and held on.

RE: be grateful

Gail, I hope that things have changed a great deal for the better for you since that awful time. We never know what we can handle until we are forced to. Bless you and your child, I hope you find much happiness and a really good new life. Luvs
