Happy Thanksgiving

I know that this time of year can be difficult by itself, but when coupled with the recent natural disasters, wars and conflicts, and general global tension, it can be extremely trying and stressful.

Take a moment and mentally list the items in your life that make you smile, feel appreciation for, and comfort you. It doesn't matter what it is - it is YOUR list.

Every time you begin to feel pressure or stress, take a deep breath, close your eyes and see one of the items on your list.

We each have so many wonderful blessings that grace our lives each day. Let us take a moment to acknowledge them.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I'm very grateful for this site and the many wonderful people I have met here! Hope you all enjoy the holiday, no matter how you spend it.

Thank you for your wonderful advice, Shirley.
This is definitely the year for me to be grateful and full of thanksgiving. This site has been a godsend. Thank you so much, Shirley and Brit, for giving us this place to come and share ourselves with others. Some of us are separated from our families and all our cyber friends here take up the slack. This is a warm and fuzzy home away from home. Love, Cher

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone and a merry holiday season!

Happy Thanksgiving...
I am just floating in a state of gratitude this year. Sean and I have come so far. And now, we are on the verge of getting him home. What a beautiful blessing that is.

Thank you all so very much for all your prayers and loving intentions in our life.

Love, Deb

Thank you Shirley.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Terry and Buddy, and Brit, Lee, & BJ,
and all our SM.com family.

May blessings abound, and may the Light of Peace reach the hearts
of all peoples on this planet...

Thank you Shirley~
Such a good reminder because so much of the time we think of what we want and what we think is missing, instead of all the many blessings that we actually do have.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Brit and your loved ones, both two and four legged.

And Happy Thanksgiving to all here who read this. There are so many special people here. :)

"Things that make you smile"

Just had to say that I was looking at your pictures on Google, and those made me smile!

The LEGS ...... man o man ..... there aren't words, sublime doesn't begin to cover it. Simply perfection.

The smile and that vibrant HAIR!!!

Yes, you made me smile today, thanks!

How could I not post this for Thanksgiving? I myself am very very grateful for this prayer. It reaches to the bottom of anyone's Being and brings out the diamond that every one of us truly is.

If you open to the vibe of this prayer, You Yourself BECOME the beneficent Bringer of Blessings.

YOU become the conduit for the abundance and grace of the Divine rather than just some limited Being begging for outside help.

Divine Beloved, thank you for changing me into someone
who can give with complete ease and abundance,
knowing You are the unlimited Source of All.

Let me be an easy open conduit for Your prosperity.
Let me trust that all of my own needs
are ALWAYS met in absolutely amazing ways

and that it is safe to give as freely as my heart guides.

And equally, thank you for Changing Me into someone
who can feel wildly open to receiving.

Let me know my own value, beauty and worthiness without question.

Let me allow others the supreme, divine pleasure of giving to me.
Let me feel worthy to receive in every possible way.

I am You.
You are Me.

We are One.

Happy Thanksgiving!

p.s. I don't know exactly where this prayer came from. I thought it was appropriate to the meditation we did on Sunday. I wanted to share it with everyone.
