It’s Thanksgiving Again
We would like to extend our thanks to all of you for visiting our blog throughout this past year.
And we send out A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours for a wonderful and happy Celebration!
“In the 19th century, the modern Thanksgiving holiday started to take shape. In 1846, Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of a magazine called Godley’s Lady’s Book, campaigned for an annual national thanksgiving holiday after a passage about the harvest gathering of 1621 was discovered and incorrectly labeled as the first Thanksgiving.
It wasn’t until 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln declared two national Thanksgivings; one in August to commemorate the Battle of Gettysburg and the other in November to give thanks for “general blessings.” ~ National Geographic: The First Thanksgiving.
Many Blessings during this holiday season!

A yearly affirmation that’s there when you need to remind yourself that being Mindful of your thoughts will do you more good than not.
How you feel and think each day, sets up your day, week, month, year and even your life. So why not help your thought process stay positive when those tough situations come up during the year.
Each motto has been exactly what I needed to make it to the next New Years Celebration. And I’m happy to share these annual affirmations with you. I hope they give you strength when you need it the most, and help you to take the next step when you feel like sitting down and giving up. Continue reading
