Happy Thanksgiving! Now, I am not American and have never lived in the States, but I have always rather liked the idea of Thanksgiving. Although the holiday has it's roots in American history, it seems to me that it would be no bad thing if the rest of the world were to adopt this holiday too. Taking a little time to stop and think about how lucky we are, not taking things for granted and feeling gratitude for the good things in our lives are things that everyone could do, regardless of age, nationality, race, religion, political leaning, whatever. My bloggy friend Ginny at Sweet Myrtle is hosting a month of gratitude, so what better day to join in.
Today, I am especially thankful that my darling Daddy is ok after falling and breaking his hip last week. (This is why I've been quiet on the blog for a week). He had an emergency hip replacement op late on Saturday night and, although still a little woozy, he is recovering well. They've had him up and walking about already - although, of course, he can't go very far yet - but he needs to be able to cope with steps whilst on crutches before they'll let him go home. But we're all just so relieved that he's ok.
What are you feeling thankful for today?
