I believe I will do this as well. One - I am thankful for a loving God and my ability to express in words

Two-I'm thankful for my friend Paul, who has stood by me during this trying times of supporting my daughter Danielle in her loss.

OMG I missed some days Three-I am thankful for my job, no matter how hard it is some days, I love being abble to "escape" and be a normal person away from home. If that is possible. Four-I am thankful for a healthy childhood and the parents who gave it to me. Five-I am thankful for the ability to read and communicate. Hmmmm maybe i got ahead of myself.

Okay, another Thanksgiving, a year later.

I'm still writing, still grateful to have the chance to do so, and grateful that I am married to a fella who is secure enough with himself to respect my privacy.

I hope everyone here is blessed with joy, and joyfully writing.

Well, I knew the four-day weekend would fly by, and it has. Right now I have a turkey in the oven and clothes in the wash, and I am sitting here with ghosties from old Thanksgivings running through my mind. Just like all the junk from the bad old days in my life, thinking about them gives me a weird feeling� the memories that are happy and fun trip, stumble, and ultimately fall down over all the bad and sad ones.

I use to keep a diary when I was younger and I am grateful for each day. The joy it brings my way.

Great post!

Does anyone keep a Thanksgiving Journal of any kind?
What are you thankful for?

A Thanksgiving Journal is a lovely idea. We all have so much to be thankful for, and it's a good idea to remember and count those blessings.

This Thanksgiving is for sure not gonna be all that great.

My sweetheart's been having some hellacious back pain. The doctor did a pile of tests and there really isn't anything they can do... it is degenerative disc disease. He's even using a cane because he can't even straighten up, and he's in so much pain he can't do his job. They just told him he had to retire. I do not make enough to get us by, and we are losing our insurance. I don't know what we're going to do. And he is feeling awful about it all. I do know how lousy it must feel to him. We talked a bit and he thanked me for not getting all upset and negative and going into the oh-God-what-are-we-gonna-do mode� Well, I am for sure feeling that and then some now and I know I will in the future. I am writing it out in my journal because I have to let it out someplace when that awful panicky feeling gets ahold of me, but I am going to be, I have to be, strong and positive for my Loved One. He is what matters. I told him that I love him and we�ll get by, and he acted so very grateful, and part of me is going, What the @#!* did you think I�d do? Leave? Ain�t nuthin gonna make me do that. We are a team... for better or for worse. It's just that now the for worse is for sure kicking in.

I just looked in my email and there was a promotional whatever from AARP, wanting me to donate money to help "impoverished seniors"... I don't think so� Sorry, I thought, No can do, because that is going to be us, and very soon, too! So I hit my delete button without a qualm.
