Thanksgiving is a day of reflection.  Thankful for what we have.  I am truly thankful for what I have.  My kids and husband are fantastic people and we are a tight knit group.  I have made wonderful friends over the years and enjoy all of those relationships.  I try to live life to the fullest and always try to remember to embrace every day.  My extended family and my husband’s extended family are also part of our lives and am happy for that.  My extended family has always been a big part of my life which I am grateful for. 

I read a quote yesterday which was read at the assembly at our kid’s school from the new Principal of the Middle school who is an incredible addition to our community.   It is from Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the Little Prince says to the aviator, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly: what is essential is invisible to the eye."

Perfect quote of the day. I really do appreciate everything that I have.  Perhaps this Thanksgiving I will take time out to see more with eyes as I listen with my heart.

    I’m thankful for Coke and technology- and inspite of family.
    The Little Prince’s haunting simplicity evokes memories of my happy childood. I am thankful.
    I must admit I didn’t understand the undoubtedly layered signficance of the ‘vain'(ah, what a quaint gendered term in this post Queer Eye world!) rose in Little Prince.
