Giving Thanks

While it is so easy to complain about all that is wrong in the world or hassles in our individual lives–for example, high gas prices, traffic, lines at the airport or the shopping mall (especially as “Black Friday” approaches), work, etc., Thanksgiving provides a chance to reflect and show gratitude for the good things.

This year, I am grateful for:

1. Good health

2. My husband

3. My aunts, uncles and cousins and great friends

4. The love I received from two wonderful parents whom I miss very much. Wish they could be here so we could still share Thanksgiving.

5. The chance to do what I love: Writing and teaching others how to research their genealogy through classes and presentations.

and many other blessings great and small!

What are you grateful for?

I will be taking a few days off from blogging to rest and enjoy the holiday.

Have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
