It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Giving Thanks

It is hard to remember that it is Thanksgiving for most of our friends and family, when it is a hot summer day .
But I did remember and thought back on the day and all the things I am so very Thankful for.

I am Thankful that my husband and I were able to have an idea ( wacky some might say) and act on it ..
I am Thankful that we found such a nice home in such a wonderful city in a fantastic country.
I am Thankful for the friends and neighbors we have , the lovely people we deal with every day in our new hometown, who treat us as one of their own.
I am Thankful for the kindness and care that they have shown all the time we have been here, especially with Tate .

I am Thankful for the possibilities we still have .. to travel, to see new places, old places, to still make plans and dream .
I am Thankful for my girl who sends me smiles, love and recipes from Florida.
And this Thanksgiving we are especially Thankful for the company of our son and his wife.

And no, for those who have asked, I am not cooking a turkey, I have not even seen a turkey in the market, I am not cooking, it is hot ! We will however, send a toast and a wish for all of you in the USA, Happy Thanksgiving ~
