My Thanksgiving wishes for each of you

...To those who are observing the Canadian Thanksgiving today and to all of my readers from wherever you hail from in this vast world of ours, I wish the following things upon your life now and always...

Peace and freedom in every possible way

To love and be loved

Hope in the face of even the bleakest of situations

Joy for the sake of joy – and for the bliss that one person’s happiness can bring to another’s life

The gift of good health, or if that is not possible, as little suffering as can be

A roof over your head and food on your table

Creativity and inspiration – may the muse never wander out of sight

Dreams to reach and new goals to aspire to

A song in your heart

Time spent with those nearest to you and the fond memories such moments foster

The ability to fall asleep with a reason to wake up smiling

Light to guide your way no matter how dark the hour

Security in whatever ways matter most to you

Friends to confide in, laugh with, hold dear

Endless blessings and reasons to give thanks

{“Freedom from want”, by Norman Rockwell, 1943. Image source.}

From the bottom of my heart,
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

  5. Hey Jessica. That was so beautiful. Thanks for sharing that. I'm in the United States so we've got another month until our Thanksgiving. It is always nice to remember to be thankful for what we have. I think I grumble a lot and always see things as being half empty. It's nice to remember that I've got a lot to be grateful for. There are others who would kill to be in my shoes.

  6. Nobody needs anything more. Thanks for the warm wishes!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you! I celebrated with my family last night - we even had our firepit going outside, it was lovely!

  8. Happy Thanksgiving Jessica! Hope you have a wonderful holiday. Lots of love and hugs.

    Xoxo, Nicolette
