Reflections on Thanksgiving Holiday

And the Snow came!

Gratitude for Each Day

I find myself reflecting on this recent past holiday. The United States is big on holidays and sometimes they become too commercially focused. Things, stuff, rather than the importance of people, pets and nature which is really what is important. Without the people, pets and a healthy environment, life loses its richness.

Consequently, I am grateful each morning for my good health, my dog, my family and friends. Because of death of loved ones, I have cleaned out one too many houses and thus, now wonder and reflect on, ‘why did I or someone else’ think they needed so many ‘things’ in their house, apartment, townhouse. I can’t take anything with me when I leave this planet and don’t really need much to live ~ Pets, people and nature.

Wonder what you think? Or does it not matter to you? Maybe you are busy shopping and that’s okay too.

  1. I totally agree, Carol. How sad it is to have to clear out a loved one’s home after their passing, but you are right: we need very little. And it would be better for all of us and our lovely planet if we’d just embrace that truth and live by it a little more. Love your photograph of snowy branches. Is that what the weather looks like down your way at the moment? All the best and stay warm and cosy, Bonny
