Lovely photo! I am thankful that I was able to hear Artist/architect Maya Lin talk about her work, the environment, and our responsibility in stewardship. She is wise and inspiring!
I am thankful for the small town feel where I live. The town has greatly expanded over the decades and we now have many chain stores and restaurants in the area hut the downtown area has independent, small business owner stores and every month we have “Third Thursday” with different groups setting up booths and multiple food trucks serving up very tasty food. There is also a town wide food drive this month to help out senior citizens and school children.

I’m thankful for the friendly technician who gave me a mammogram today. Because breast cancer runs in my family I have them regularly. She was fun and chatty and quickly put me at ease.
Nov. 20–I am thankful for the pre-Thanksgiving sales that enabled me to stockpile so much good food at killer prices! I grew up in a home where money was super-tight and we never had extra food in the house. A full pantry and full freezer adds to my feeling of security.
I am thankful for a sunny day today, and the time to do some food prep for Thanksgiving.

I’m thankful my friend of 15 years is no longer suffering from the wretched brain cancer she was diagnosed with this year. I will miss her terribly though. She was such a wonderful friend and sister in Christ.

The wind is howling. So, today I’m thankful for electricity. We’ve lost it once this evening and it’s been flickering off and on for awhile. But, while it’s still on, I am very grateful!
Thankful that I have insurance that covered flu shots and shingles shots for me and my husband, all for free. (Plus got 4 coupons for 10% off future grocery store trips. Will be helpful for Christmas cooking supplies.

I am thankful for the lovely memories of many happy Thanksgivings with my family. Not everyone will have a happy holiday gathering because of some family issues, but we, so far, have had good ones every year. What a blessing.
I am thankful to be part of a wonderful book club that inspires and creates a great community. It’s a special group of friends and I like that I can get the books from my library usually as an ebook.
I also am thankful for the rain we have been receiving here in Maryland. We were having a bit of a drought this past year, but now the ponds seem to be coming up to the right height.
