I love this time of year and the feeling of gratitude that it evokes.

Thanksgiving is a time of year with few expectations except to enjoy good food, friends, family and to take the time to give thanks and be mindful for all the blessings in our lives. For me, my own personal practice of daily gratitude has been life changing. It has been such a blessing to give thanks daily for even the smallest of things– I feel humbled by the abundance of blessings I experience in my daily life.

For years, my husband Marvin has started each day off by giving a speech (and a cookie) to our dog, Harpo. Harpo will look at his dad attentively for the whole speech, like he knows exactly what Marvin is saying.

Hearing Marvin’s morning speech is always a positive reminder of how blessed I am:

No barking,
No biting,
No scratching,

No clawing,
No peeing, no pooping,
No eating toilet paper, tissue paper, paper towels or important papers in the house.

Rule number one: love your mommy with all your heart, and let’s approach this beautiful day that God has made with an attitude of gratitude.

We have much to be thankful for, our blessings are many! 

My wish for all of you this Thanksgiving is that you can pause and give thanks for all the blessings you have been given, big and small. May we all celebrate this opportunity to give thanks for our health, and recognize all the possibilities for love in our lives.
