"For each of us there is some mission in life if we but find it. All have some definite thing to do, something for which they have been created; and only the doing of this thing will justify their existence here on earth. If we come into the world and occupy space and time without giving back for this privilege, we have not justified ourselves, and our lives in the end are barren." ~ Hay

Count Down to Thanksgiving! 24 Things I am Thankful for this year…

I have more reasons to give thanks this year than I’ve ever had before.  My closest friends and relatives say it’s because I’m coming into my own.  I’m pretty sure it’s because of fewer responsibilities due to the fact that both of my kids are in college.  I am thankful my kids are both happy away at school, but I’m also grateful for the following things too……

1.   I’m thankful for this blog where I can express my views creatively and with passion and purpose.

What the Frack!

2.    I am thankful that my next door neighbors have kindness and patience and put up with my dog barking day and night.
