That title is NOT an error; it was not supposed to read: “Remembering to give thanks.” No, this is just a short post to recall ---- well, what I recalled.
I had thoughts about Thanksgiving yesterday, and again this morning. I could have written of so many things, but I was forcing thoughts. And so instead I went to my blog and, scrolling down the sidebar, I saw the list of “Labels” I had used on prior postings. And then I scrolled down to the label titled: Thanksgiving.
There were 17 prior postings with the Thanksgiving label. I clicked on the label name and the 17 postings appeared in order on my screen. I took about an hour to read them all, one after another.
And now I sincerely gave thanks, for the memories of my thanks of prior years. This is the best posting I could have made this day (and time I could have spent), and a good thing for you to do also if you’d take the time. And the last posting was, I believe, the best. (Isn’t it always that way?)
I hope you had a blessed and peaceful Thanksgiving Day --- and if you didn’t really pause to give sincere thanks, well, take some time now to read and reflect on how really blessed you are.
