Giving thanks...

"Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude."                                        --A.A. Milne 

What would your favorite fictional character give thanks for this Thanksgiving? Ever wondered? Winnie the Pooh would be thankful for a simple jar of honey. For Bilbo Baggins it would have to be second breakfasts and elevenses. I'm sure Elizabeth Bennett (and Mr. Darcy, too) would give thanks for second chances. And I think Harry Potter would give thanks for friends that feel more like family. I tried to imagine what Katniss Everdeen would be grateful for, but I honestly couldn't come up with a single thing. As for me? I am grateful for simple things like friends and family; bubble baths, snow plows, and Maui beaches; chocolate, Sunday morning comics, the cancer treatments that saved my sister's life, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; libraries, books to read, and at least 1,000 other things.

Here's to counting our blessings this year...I hope you have a very
Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. LOVE the A.A. Milne quote! Maybe Katniss would be grateful for a bow & arrows? I love your gratitude list...I would add sunsets, and of course, it is always appropriate to repeat chocolate!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a great holiday.
