It’s Thursday. This means the blog is open. I’m here waiting for you to pop by for our virtual chat. I can’t offer you an actual cup of coffee (or tea – after all I’m a Brit), but you can grab your own and take the weight off.
But it’s not just any old Thursday. It’s Thanksgiving Thursday.
We do not celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK. This is disappointing. Because if ever there was a holiday that I think would be a great addition to the British calendar, it’s Thanksgiving.
There’s always room to give a little thanks in our lives. To show gratitude, and to appreciate how lucky we are. Because I truly believe we are blessed to have been born, and experience this amazing life on earth.
Here are 3 things I am thankful for:
1. My family
2. That I am not in constant fear for my own life and that those dear to me are not also
3. I have freedom of speech, and opinion and am able to lead my life how I choose
This is the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more I am thankful for. So much.
In giving thanks, I cannot miss out all of you. Thank you for taking time to come by, chat and be part of my incredibly satisfying virtual world. I’ve said it before, I feel so blessed to have been born at a time to have known the world before and during the internet. And to have had the opportunity to live through this technological revolution.
