Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2017

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving. A day to think about all the blessings we have. When we look back on this past year we cannot help but be thankful for our children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. We are grateful for this time in our lives when we are able to travel and spend time getting to know the beauty that is our country. We look forward to being able to do more traveling in our Stinger "B". 

It is nice to have a day to remind us all to give thanks but I keep thinking that giving thanks should not be confined to the 4th Thursday in November, or if you are Canadian the 2nd Monday in October, it is something we should think about every day. 

"When you arise in the morning, 
give thanks for the morning light,
for you life and strength.
Give thanks for you food,
and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks,
the fault lies with yourself."
~Tecumseh, Shawnee Chief

Wishing Everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to both of you! Enjoy your American holiday.
    Your words are inspiring, as always.
    I am so grateful for the steps in my life, some tougher than others, but it got us to where we are today. We couldn't have done it all without the love and support of our family and friends.

    1. Thank you.
      I would agree having the love and support of family and friends makes the tough steps of life much easier and the easy ones more rewarding.

  2. Happy Thanks giving to you as well. Use being Canadians we have the bonus of celebrating this day twice a year too.

    1. Thank you.
      Having the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving twice is a nice bonus.

  3. Wishing you both and your family a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
    Praying Tom is recovering enough to travel this Winter.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes and the prayers.
      We are praying the same thing.
