Be grateful for all you've had, all you have now...and all that's yet to be!


For some of us the fairy tale starts at midnight...we can get out of that very uncomfortable shoe and tight dress, and eat pumpkin pie! (or chocolate)


May there always be an angel by your side.


There is no right or wrong, we all dance to our own songs.  What is true for others may not be true for you, we all have our own unique points of view. Never argue, debate or try and change someone else.  Learn to agree to disagree and always be yourself. - Harry Bridgeman


Be present in all things and thankful for all things. - Maya Angelou


Imagine you are a lake...the surface of the lake changes according to weather, wind, rain, etc.  But the depth of the lake remains always undisturbed. The depth of the lake is your inner state, not dependent on external things. - Eckhart Tolle


Forgive yourself for the blindness that put you on the path of those who betrayed you.  Sometimes a good heart doesn't see the bad.


I'm so grateful for family and friends and good food and the people who grow and make good food and kind and compassionate people and cheese! Grateful!


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  5. je suis pas étonnée du chat qui attaque un chien pour sauver sa maitresse
    ici j'ai un chat qui a 20 ans et je garde des chiens pendant les congés et si un chien grogne sur moi par exemple si je passe a coté de lui quand il mange , mon chat l'attaque et c'est pas le chien qui gagne ....
    bisous et doux dimanche

  37. I'm a few days late for your turkey carving tips. We were just having a discussion about this last week - the best way to carve a roast.

  38. Linda,truth be told, I haven't even looked at your blog post! I'm just checking in to send you hugs and love, and let you know that I've been up to my eyeballs in Christmas preparations. But I do think of you everyday. Hope all is well! Hugs and love!

  39. I really enjoyed the JFL gag and the reactions of the people. Loved the lady who blew on the man's fingers after pinching them in the book. What a brave kitty to lure the pit bulls away from the lady. I'm glad kitty and lady both came out of the scrape in one piece. Love the "Grateful" sentiment!
