Thanks-giving Quote from Diana

My sis-in-love, Diana/Otterwise, sent this quotation for Thanksgiving.

“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.”
-Tecumseh, Shawnee leader

I am not into pointing fingers or placing blame/fault… but it does seem that there is always something wonderful to be grateful for as long as we are alive. I’m grateful for large things, like no war, flood or earthquake in my corner of the earth. I’m grateful that I can walk and dance and go forth into the world without illness or physical struggle. I am grateful for air to breathe, good food, people who accept me as I am.

I’m also grateful for the smallest things… a smile from a baby, a blooming dandelion or violet in the yard on the third week in November, a chance to notice the sun streaming in to the rather disheveled attic space this morning.

I have more food and clothing than I need today. I have heat indoors. I have a computer and a basic cell phone, and a miraculous ipod for not only my calendar but music and other useful and entertainment programs.

Yes, there is always something for which we can give thanks.

Thanks, Diana.
