Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This morning, while out walking the little bulldog, I definitely took pause to count all the blessings in my life. Yes, there are certainly many – almost countless really and definitely too many to include in this post.

So, I began thinking about the “bigger picture”. What am I most grateful for overall?!

Not an easy question to answer, but this is what I came up with:

I’m most grateful in this world for CHILDREN.

Not just my children, or my grandchildren, or my relative’s children, or my Godchildren, or my friend’s children, but for ALL children.

I whole-heartedly think that it is children that make this world so wonderful.

Put simply, they are the reason we all go on. But, they can also be the reason we decide to take better care of ourselves. The reason we decide to take better care of our planet. The reason we stand up for our ideals and the reason we want to make this world a better place.

We love them enough to pass down our traditions which builds our cultures and our history and creates a world of meaning and purpose. Hopefully, we also pass down a respect for other cultures and traditions too.

Our children can inspire us to see the world through new eyes and motivate us to try new things. Just their being gives us hope of a future.

I am so blessed to have and to love and to be loved by so many incredible children. I hope for everyone to know this joy in their lives too, and, especially today, to be thankful for it.

Sending Love, Peace and Joy,
