What are you Thankful for this year? A tons of things right? I have this habit of compiling a list of all the things that I am thankful for a each year( Of course, i started this after coming here) and take an hour or so to run through it again and thank people and god for all those things.I am really thankful for everything that happened from last thanks giving eve till my gals day out yesterday.( oh we had a wonderful time in new york city yesterday..Isn't it V??)...Wonder only good things are happening to me ..Oh No..i also have my share of "not so good things". But being a very optimistic person , I always try to see the sunny positive side of them and accept the teensy weensy good in the worst! . Sounds Crazy? Try doing this, you will be amazed by the kind of bliss you get.
Hope all the bags are packed ready to go for those on vacation and others busy in the kitchen cooking up dishes and setting up the table....To y'all.....Wishing you a very Yummy Happy Joyful Thanksgiving!!!!
