For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

We give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way. ~Author Unknown

Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart. ~Seneca

Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated mainly in the United States and Canada. It is a day of giving thanks to all that we have in each others lives and a day where family and friends gather together. I have very fond memories of Thanksgiving while growing up in the United States, all the activities in art in school and all the stories we learned about the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. Unfortunately, I didn't celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year. Nevertheless this special day made me reflect on what I'm thankful in my life which I'm about to share with you.

I am thankful for:

1. My family and friends

My family and friends have supported me over the years I'm so thankful! Especially my friends who have been there through good and bad and are always there for me when I need them, I'm thankful and love you!

2. My boyfriend Andreas

Andreas and I have been together for almost 2 years now, and I love him so much, words cannot explain. He is one of the most understanding people I have ever known, he is always there for me and always truly listens to me. I couldn't be more thankful.

3. My cat Frankie a.k.a Meou

I'm very thankful for my cat because being an only child such as myself, it can sometimes get pretty lonely at home. My cat always lights up my heart :)

4. My dual upbringing

I'm thankful that I have had the opportunity to have spent half of my life in the United Stated and the other half now in Greece. Having two different outlooks in life has helped me see things without being judgmental and has helped me be more open minded.

5. My Blackberry

This might sound a bit silly but I'm really thankful for my Blackberry Bold 9700! Whenever I have had the need to get online but wasn't home, whenever I needed to snap a picture but didn't have my digital camera with me, my Blackberry was there! So I thank it very much and apologize for abusing it :P

6. My car

I'm really thankful that I have a car! In the area where I live public transportation does not really work for me and the hours that I leave my house. On a normal basis I leave my house around midnight so having a car to get me wherever I want is pure bliss.

My list can go on and on and on, but I think I'll put a stop here before I bore everyone, what are you thankful for Dolls?

Kisses Dolls!
