Happy Thanksgiving !!!

Hi there --- Autumn/Winter is going past WAYYYYYY too quickly!!! Summer didn't go by this fast! I guess it is cuz this is my favourite time of year but I sure wish that it wouldn't go past quite so quickly! LOL Anyway, I know that many people don't celebrate Thanksgiving but I think it is nice to think about being grateful for things no matter what day it is. I really should do that more often, myself! A lot of what I am grateful for is the same as what I was grateful for LAST year but I'm still going to list them because they are definitely things to still be grateful for. (Wacky sentence there!) :-)
I'm grateful for Tai Chi (my eldest cat) even tho she is making it extremely difficult to type right now because she decided she wants to be in my arms, to purr and shed! (grins) I'm grateful for my younger cat, Blueberry, because she is NOT bugging me to pat her at the moment- LOL ... Nahhhh...because she is a sweet heart (like her "cat sister" Tai Chi) and she (and Tai) bring me such love and companionship all year 'round. (I love my little catlets!) (smiles) I'm grateful for my family still being here and us all being relatively healthy! I'm grateful for the wonderful friends I have, both in RL and on SL. The SL ones are just as real and important to me as any and all friends I have made in real life! Their love and friendship help me at all times, happy, lonely, angry, or sad. I'm grateful it is RAINING today!!!!!! Whooo hooooo!!! I love it love it LOVE IT! It is sooo beautiful and grey outside. It is perfect for a cozy mood of getting together with family and friends. I'm grateful I have a place to go this year -- to my brother and sister in law's (I have had some years where I had no place to go, no one to celebrate with -- that can be very lonely) I'm grateful I have a roof over my head, and a working shower/bath! (grins) I am grateful my apt is a lot cleaner than it was last year ... and that is because of my care-giver, whom I am also VERY grateful for!!! I'm grateful for music and being able to hear it -- I recently saw Dhani Harrison (George Harrison's son) in concert with his group "thenewno2" ("The Prisoner" reference), and his music was fantastic! (I've been enjoying his CD ever since). :-) I am VERY grateful that the arthritis in my knees/legs is not acting up as badly as it was last year -- so it is much easier to walk at this point!!!! (I am SOOOO grateful about that)!
I'm grateful for having a working computer and for being able to afford the cost to get online (and visit people!) I'm grateful for being alive at the time where we CAN have contact with people all over the world, instantly, ... I STILL hope that this contact can help us all as a species to try to STOP killing each other! (Hopefully make our differences stop being threatening so we can be tolorant of and actually enjoy our variety!) I am SOOOOOO grateful for animals being on this planet. They are sooooo beautiful and I think we could learn a lot from them! {I want to write some more because writing down grateful lists is such a good exercise to improve one's mood -- but I have to get ready to drive to my brother's for Thanksgiving -- THANK YOU everyone who visits this blog for being there!!! -- To Be continued Later! Hugssss!!!!}

What a wonderful post. You are right, and we all have much to be grateful for, and you summed some of those things up very nicely :)

It is indeed a day to stop and take stock of the fortunate things and people in our lives; the things we so often take for granted.
