Thanksgiving: 30 Days of Gratitude, Day 26

Thanksgiving 2015

In Praise and Thanksgiving, 30 Days of Gratitude

Day 26: I am thankful for the tradition of Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for the tradition of Thanksgiving, for all its customs and wonderful memories. A time with family, a time with friends, for me usually a time of cooking, which I enjoy. For all of us, a time to reflect and be grateful for all our blessings. This year I am grateful for the resiliency of our human bodies. Our physical beings endure so much, yet heal well. I am grateful for the opportunity to write this blog, and for the many people who have reached out to tell me they enjoy reading it. As you celebrate this Thanksgiving, I hope you will consider the small things that bring your heart joy. Life isn’t always easy, but whenever we can delight in that which is small or simple, we know we can always be saved from despair.


What small, simple things will you delight in today?


May your heart overflow with goodness and joy. May your heart be blessed! Happy Thanksgiving 2015! Thanks for reading Stumbler.


With gratitude, I give you the gift of this short film to enjoy:
