Things I am thankful for…

Franciscan Winery


family, friends and good neighbors       

good health and having lived this long

love, books, shoes, basil, coffee, cats, wine, my laptop, make-up, music, no debt

second chances and forgiveness

new experiences

sleep and rest

my muse

simple beauty around me in the everyday flow of life and nature…the mystery in the night sky

freedom, choices and peace in the United States of America

hope for the future and the next generation.

     I have more than I need, but sometimes…less than I want.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

  1. Yes, life is good at my age. I have more of everything I need and cannot think of a thing more that I want for myself. If I had one wish, I would wish for a peaceful world. Have a good Thanksgiving. This was a thoughtful post. Thank you.


  2. An awesome list JoNell, and I am thankful for the old friends, like you, that I have been able to reconnect with the last few years. We share so many great childhood and teenage memories. There was a time when I truly thought that everyone grew up in an atmosphere of love and caring like you and I did….as I aged I found that is not the case and that we are specially blessed.


  3. Agreed. Nicely spoken on the page. 🙂 We’re a little behind over here with the holidays and the flu! (Yuk! Just passing it around.) Must remember our blessings…:)


    • Thank you so much for the kind comments! I hope you are feeling better – just what you need for the holidays. All OK here so far. I have been behind in reading blogs with Thanksgiving and then a guest for a week.


  4. Excellent distinction you leave us with. We have what we need — perhaps not what we want — but then again, our wants (human wants) are insatiable. There never is enough to satisfy them! Makes it all the more imperative to distinguish between the two.


    • You understood my message! Thank you for visiting and commenting favorably. May we appreciate what we have every day in this busy holiday season that focuses on the material and remember those that are in need.


  5. You are right, if we count the blessings we receive in our lives ….. will not be counted. So many favors, so that we become accustomed to, and keep looking for it seems we have not got ……. 🙂
