As we enter into the holiday season, most of us are seeing many changes in our lives and our families.. Instead of gathering among loved ones for Thanksgiving Dinner this year, we are staying home and are talking to loved ones online. It's just not the same.
George and I thought we were one of the lucky ones this year, hoping to spend Thanksgiving with son Mark and his gal, Robin... We were so excited... HOWEVER, they called Tuesday night and gave us some bad news... Robin is the Director of a pre-school in Knoxville and just found out that her assistant had tested positive for Covid. SO--Robin got tested Wednesday but won't get her results for about 4 days or longer. THEREFORE, our wonderful Thanksgiving with them has been postponed... We all were SO disappointed. So---George and I will be home talking to all of the family on the phone and on Facetime... Life is different for sure!
Many of you have been talking all month about showing gratitude --even through the rough times. SO--today, I have picked out some of my favorite quotes and ideas to share with you... I have always 'tried' to be POSITIVE with whatever life gives me/us... But I'll admit that I am one who needs to read these quotes over and over --each and every day!!!! Another quote which I love says that there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for!!!! Oh --how true that is...
For me, I am truly grateful for being out in nature and experiencing God's Beauty all around us. That is why I also included a couple pictures I took on 10/21/20 of the beautiful Fall colors... I hope they will bring a smile to your face on this Thanksgiving Day in the USA. ENJOY!!!!!
|I took this picture on 10/21/20 at Indian Boundary Recreation Area, off of the Cherohala Skyway --not too far from Tellico Plains, TN|
|On 10/21/20, late in the afternoon --we were headed down the mountain toward home and stopped just to capture this incredible sky. |
Have a fabulous day --and weeks ahead... I won't blog again until December 7th...
God's Blessings on ALL of you. Thank you for always being there for me/with me each and every month/year.
