I was taught as a child to pray without ceasing
As a child I was guided by my teachers to not put prayer to an hour of the day
or to use it just in times of disaster,pain,wants,needs, loneliness or sorrow
no...prayer is a continuous communion with God
and it has been for all my life.....
So gratefulness is easy ....counting my blessings is like breathing
I am never without a listener....who knows before I speak
I am grateful that most Americans set aside this day to gather with their families
or with their friends or animals to stop and think of what blessings they have in their lives
A day to not count the lack
but to gladly bow their heads and say thank you
My daughter, Sarah, and her husband are doing the cooking this year
I will be making pies and a pumpkin cheesecake
I got off easy
So get out your notebooks,journals, scratch-paper
I am grateful for.....
