Thursday is Thanksgiving, and I want to take this time to wish all of you the happiest of of days and blessings abundant in your lives.
I wish you enough. Enough is plenty, and plenty is a bounty. To wish for more would be folly and would take away from others who don't have enough.
I hope for peace. Peace in our hearts, peace for everyone, everywhere, for all time. That which bring us peace nourishes our souls and fills our lives.
I wish you love. Love from family, love from friends, unconditional love that fills your heart and blesses you beyond your most wondrous dreams. Every person deserves to be loved and love in return.
I pray for your needs to be met. For shelter, for nourishment, for comforts to keep you from harm.
I wish for you peace of mind. Whatever are the worries you may have, I hope they may be lifted from your shoulders. Without a load on your shoulders, may you soar above the clouds that block your view of all that is possible.
I am thankful for everyone in my life. My family, the ones I didn't choose and whom didn't choose me, but whom I choose to hold close to my heart for the rest of my life, who share my genes and other familial bonds that withstand everything. My friends, those I have chosen in real life or on the internet, the ones who put up with my foibles, my insecurities, my inconsistencies, my craziness, who laugh at my bad jokes and laugh with me when I'm happy, and who hold me tightly in their arms or hearts when I'm sad or broken. You are the greatest treasures I have, and I am thankful that you've chosen to slow down long enough to share this time with me.
Lastly, my favorite Irish blessing ....
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Take a minute and enjoy this:
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
