A Thankful Thanksgiving

We are so very grateful for so many things this year…

We are grateful for our health, even with a few minor aches and pains, we are still moving and able to live our lives as we have always dreamed we could.

We are grateful for our friends, and that includes our cyber friends. It is so nice to meet individuals that are so like minded as us and for sharing all of their wonderful moments via their own blogs.

We are grateful that we have our home on wheels with warmth when it’s cold and the cooling when it’s hot.

We are grateful for the clothes we have to wear, the food we are so blessed to eat and for all the goodies we are able to enjoy.

We are grateful for all the times we are able to travel this wonderful country of ours, and for all those times when we have to settle in for a bit so we can enjoy new meetings and new adventures.

We are grateful for all the work that comes our way, to make it possible for us to continue living this wonderful lifestyle.

These are things we are always grateful for and include in our everyday prayers. But, on Thanksgiving we feel it appropriate to be able to share it with everyone.

Many of you have noticed that we are updating our blog from our coastal drive but what you may not know is we are doing it while at the Christmas tree lot. We were unable to do it while we were in travel because once we got behind, there was no catching up. We took the time and wrote the stories, but for us it’s not just the words, it is also the photos and those take so much time for us to download, fix or change, to name and then to file in our very organized manner. There are times it is hard to get out of our own way and just do something, so we must confess that our coastal drive is complete and we are currently working the Christmas Tree lot but we will continue to update our blog with our coastal drive and date it accordingly.

Thanks again for taking the time to read our blog, it is such a joy to read all of your blogs and all of your comments.

I am enjoying reading about your trip up the coast and I look forward to reading about your adventure selling Christmas trees. It will be interesting to compare your experience selling trees with Ali and Ron's. Are you still in the Pleasanton, CA area? Dave is originally from the Bay Area and we've stayed at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds a few times.

Thank you for sharing your list of what you are thankful for with all of us. Happy Thanksgiving!

This is our 3rd year working the Christmas trees and we too are very interested in hearing about Ali & Ron's experience. It is so much easier this year already, but we are pros at it now...

We too are enjoying the pictures of your coastal trip and hope to make one of those next year. As you mentioned we have lots to be thankful for and sometimes we are our own obstacle.

Do what you can on your blog...we will all be here waiting to read it as you post it.

And we too, are interested in hearing about Ali & Ron's experience :) Right now our only wish was that we asked more questions but we didn't even know the questions to ask :) go figure. I hope to not be too tired to update daily or at least every other day during this new adventure.

Thank you Kimberly and Carol for your thoughts and prayers for us and we are truly thankful we can call you all our friends.

I had classical music playing while reading your post. The roses were set to music and the combined beauty brought tears to my eyes. Thank you. Happy Thanksgiving!
