Giving Thanks

At this time of being thankfull, I would like to give thanks to all of you who have spent countless hours creating your wonderful journals! Thank you for providing me with something to think, laugh and smile about. Thank you for provoking me in ways I never expected. ....and...Thank You for coming here, and leaving your kind words and sharing your thoughts! You are a very special and dear group of people!

While I am giving thanks, I would like to thank a few people who unknowingly affected me in such profound ways as to alter my way of thinking.

I would like to thank the woman who applied her make-up at a traffic light and gave me a glimpse of how a womans true beauty is revealed. "Lovely and Amazing" (entry 12/18/05)

I would like to thank Hilda for stuffing food in her bra while on the buffet line and showed me that when a love becomes so selfish, it ruins the picnic! "Hildas Bra" (entry 9/17/06)

I would like to thank the cast of Sesame Street, who in two hours taught me the most important lesson I could learn about being a parent! "Sesame Street Live" (entry 6/18/05)

I would like to thank Pearl King, who taught me the weight of a soul is more important than the weight on the scale! "The Weight" (entry 9/3/07)

I would like to thank Carrie, a date, who taught me that laughter is the most  powerful aphrodesiac. "Lotus Eaters" (entry 7/19/05)

I would like to thank Kenny, the spoiled one, who gave me the answer to "How many Mantle cards Does A Boy Need" (entry 10/18/05)

I would like to thank that 30 something Blonde in the Bloomindales lingerie dept, who allowed my imagination to transcend time in "Breathless in Bloomies" (entry 12/27/05)

I would like to thank my son for picking up 3 pennies off the floor and allowed me to learn how the highest fence we have to climb is our own ego! "Pennies From Heaven" (entry 2/20/06)

I would like to thank the camper who in bringing me a meatball sub actually brought me the way I would live the rest of my life! ---BIG THANKS FOR THAT! "Meatball Sub" (entry 3/2/06)

There are so many more to thank, but I have to run...as you can see,  we have a photographer here that will do a family shoot.  There will be no need for me to say "cheese", I'm just going to think of all the wonderful souls that have crossed my pathhere, and I'll have the biggest smile!

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Marc :)

Gee, I've missed a great deal of your entries since being AWOL from AOL the past 5 yrs.  I have a feeling I've a lot of reading to do : )  

Sesame Street taught me somehting, too.  To sing (Sunny days, sweeping the clouds away....), even if I had a terrible singing voice.  KIds & I got thru many hard times, singing & laughing.

Hope you had a terrific T-day, Bethe  (that other florida girl)

the best thing about the season is it makes a person stop and think about all he or she has to be thankful for, and how very blessed we really are. i think i'll start doing that at least once a week.  it does the spirit good.

i hope your thanksgiving was wonderful.

Well damn, teach me for being a month or so late on everything. I love having a picture of you to go with the writing now! (I'm one of those visual people) I wanted to wish you a wonderful 2008 that resembles exactly what you wish to design. I thank you for your words of wisdom, your humor and witty charm. This community is very lucky to have a soul like your's hanging around.

Thinking of you,
Rebecca Anne
