thank you

Sometimes dreams are wiser than waking.

Black Elk (1863- 1950) medicine man

wall wednesday continues.....

i thought it would be nice to use wall wednesday as an opportunity to get my happy thanksgiving message out to all the friends who drop by the mouse!

ah, i've been a lax blogger of late - sorry! no doubt my absence is more a sign of the current tempo of my life than anything else. but the tempo of my life reflects all that i have to be thankful for:

i am thankful for having a full life.
i am thankful for my family and friends.
i am thankful that i can make friends "family"

i am thankful for good health and a strong body.
i am thankful that every experience - happy, sad, joy, disappointment, pain, tranquility - has a lesson and a message that - if i pay attention - will enrich.

i am thankful for knowing that what is important in life is not riches but knowing that every experience can be enriching.

i am thankful that i am who i am
i am thankful that you are who you are.

i am thankful for every species on our beautiful blue marble.

i am thankful for all of the seasons.
i am thankful for cold, heat, rain, and snow.

i am thankful for the sun and the light.
i am thankful for the moon and the night.

i am thankful for all who came before who have made the world a better place.

i am thankful for all who struggle who are making the world a better place.

i am thankful for hope.
i am thankful for charity.
i am thankful for faith.
i am thankful for love.

dido performing her sweetly infectious song thank you - the song first appeared in the film sliding doors (a wonderful romantic dramedy with leads by gwyneth paltrow and john hannah - i was smitten with the film as it ran two stories in alternative realities - i just love musing about what ifs and alternative realities, don't you?) the song was released as a single in 2000 and then later it appeared on dido's debut album no angel.

Great post! I was just writing about counting our blessings!

I loved "Sliding Doors." I should rent it again sometime...

Fine words Kim. Warmest greetings to you and your family for Thanksgiving : it may not be a holiday over here, but I will raise a glass to all my American friends - you are very special to me.
