Posted:So, in three hours it will be Thanksgiving Day in the US. This is a national holiday formed for pretty much the wrong reasons over horrible occurances (let's have dinner while we slaughter your family and steal your land) but has evolved into a nice holiday for families to join, thanks to be given to whatever and for an excuse to eat alot of wonderful home made food(Cass, you might appreciate that as much as I do!

).I think this year, after so much tragedy here in the US, especially here in the North East, this day of thanks and thought will take on a whole new meaning.In my family, before we can eat we have to all say something we are thankful for, so I thought I'd ask you, what are you all thankful for?Normally I say my friends, my family, etc...the general stuff. In addition to this, this year I appreciate life so much more. I appreciate and am thankful for seeing one more sunrise, and yet another snowflake. I am thankful for all the magic in my life, real or imagined. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, world wide, because as I see it, we all have alot to be thankful for.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:I am thankful for my lovely daughter, for my friends and family, for having the resources to do anything I set my mind to, for being alive (I had a curvature of the spine as a baby and if the Doctors hadn't intervened I probably wouln't be here now) & to all the ppl on this bb for being who they are. Also I am thankful for the small things in life, a beautiful sunset, a pretty butterfly, the beauty of this planet, the sound of children laughing etc.I think Thanks Giving is a great idea and more cultures should adopt it.Onelove, Thistlefirepixie

Posted:TFP, I agree with you with the little things in life that shine so much.But with all due respect to the Americans, I would not want to adopt that particular celebration. I think Pele worded it perfectly, it was formed for historical reasons which I don't quite agree with...Why not do like Alice in Wonderland... And have a unbirthday or unthanksgiving EVERYDAY !Actually that's pretty close of my idea of happiness : find a good reason to smile every day

He considered the sentence, and found it good. He liked 'tincture' particularly. Tincture. Tincture. It was a distinguished word, and pleasantly countered by the flatness of 'soup'.

Posted:I am thankful for HoP's search function tongue

I am surprised that this is the best hit I got, altho its just about exactly right except its not too near to thanksgiving.

I'm bumping this thread because I'm thankful that I'm not in pain.

Reading this thread reminds me also to be thankful for having met Pozee, and Dom, and many other such things which have grown from there.

I'm thankful that I can sleep in a place and not worry about violence. (As strange as that may sound to those of you who know where i live tongue).

And I'm thankful that things arn't worse. Because they so easily could be.
