Happy Thanksgiving to all

This is a wonderful American holiday, we remember to give thanks. I usually do not post cliche quotes but here is one I liked. Sometimes I have to remind myself how lucky I am to live where I live and to have my family and friends around me and indeed I am thankful for all my blessings.

Things to Be Thankful For:

  • Be thankful for the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means you have enough to eat.
  • Be thankful for the mess you clean up after a party, because it means you have been surrounded by friends.
  • Be thankful for the taxes you pay, because it means you're employed.
  • Be thankful that your lawn needs mowing and your windows need fixing, because it means you have a home.
  • Be thankful for your heating bill, because it means you are warm.
  • Be thankful for the laundry, because it means you have clothes to wear.
  • Be thankful for the space you find at the far end of the parking lot, because it means you can walk.
  • Be thankful for the lady who sings off-key behind you in church, because it means you can hear.
  • Be thankful when people complain about the government, because it means we have freedom of speech.
  • Be thankful for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, because it means you're alive.

Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! I hope you and your family have a wonderful celebration.

Request: How 'bout some pix of your Hungarian specialty dishes for the big meal? I just LOVE photos of food!
