Just want to encourage all to have a great day. With determination we will all survive. Eat well, enjoy the people around you and be thankful for what the Lord has blessed you with. And even if you do slip its not the worst thing that can happen to you. Hugs to you all my friends.

I am so excited about our Thanksgiving this year because we are having an open house and inviting friends who have no place to go to share it with us. I have been cooking for two days and having so much fun. I couldn't sleep last night because I am so excited. I hope all you have a safe and healthy day! Enjoy the love of friends and family and the blessing of being thankful for what you have. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

I agree. I think we have enough negative and critical people around us willing to beat us up. What we need to combat them comes from loving and forgiving ourselves. If we are the best that we can be rather than be the best that others want us to be, we will find more successes than failures.

I accept myself for not being perfect. I can fall but I stand proud when I pick myself up, dust myself off and move onwards instead of backwards with guilt and shame.

Stand tall. God isn't finished with us yet!!! Happy Thanksgiving to all.

The old statement of "I cried because I had no shoes until I met the man without any feet" can summarize the point of being thankful for what we have rather than focusing on what we don't have, won't have, or can't have.
