Thanksgiving Reminder

Post by JimT »

I would like to encourage you to take Thanksgiving Day and spend the day BEING THANKFUL! It is very easy to be not-thankful if you watch the news or think about some things too much. So for a day, make the effort to think about the good things in life. Yes, I understand that times can be hard, that we have lost loved ones, that life may be going in a direction we do not like or agree with. I DO UNDERSTAND THAT! I am not saying “pretend everything is great.” I am saying STOP AND BE THANKFUL.

Because there are things in life to be thankful for.

Start thinking about them! Let your thoughts dwell on what is good. Don't let negativity have a place in your thinking for at least this one day! Several thousand years ago a Middle Easterner wrote these words: “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. If there is anything worthy of praise, think on these things.”

I think that's pretty good advice and the challenge is to do it for an entire day. Since it's “Thanksgiving” what better day to give it a try?

And ... I am thankful for you on this Forum! You are part of my journey in this life and because of you my life has been made richer and more interesting. Thank you!

I feel the same about life, attitude, this forum, and you too.

I try every day to give prayers of thankfulness and for those going through hard times.

Still sometimes I DO complain though; it is just too tempting... :D

I am particularly thankful for reverend jim especially his finger-picking prowess.....

Though he did not look so much like lee marvin in 1971 as he did in later years.....

still somewhat irked that that $30 I sent to general delivery, oracle, arizona in 1983 for the taylor pocket casting/loading kit was lost or absconded (the envelope came back empty and stamped "undeliverable" and covered in javelina tracks) but every time I hear him pick and sing "fire and rain" on the radio I temporarily forget the loss.....

The only thing he and I have in common is we are both now old and bald.
I never forgave him for stealing Carly Simon away from me ... tho is seems she never was aware that we had a relationship!

No matter how I feel, or what is going on, I start every day thanking the Lord for my wife, my son, my friends and my work.

You would be surprised at how much better your attitude gets when you recount your blessings every morning.

Family get together at the ranch today, everything cooked on the 🔥. Same last year with rib roast, 2 years ago meant all food was killed or caught. Our tradition is to discuss being thankful throughout the meal. We are living large and loving it. Gonna try and meet a new neighbor today, I think they are alone. My best wishes to all!
