We have a tendency, most of us, generally speaking, to appreciate things most when we no longer have them. It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada so for three consecutive days, I tend to focus on all the wonderful things for which I am full of thanks.
Today, I am grateful that my Internet connection is wonky so that I will spend more time outside enjoying the cool Autumn weather.
I appreciate the people who have shared my life, even briefly, and taught me about living in the process. Through them, I experience great conversations, good books and entertainment that stimulate my brain cells so that I'm always learning new things, reaching for better understanding and enjoying myself in the process.
I live in a country that fills all of my needs - physical, emotional, spiritual and mental. There is no need to want for anything here.
Go enjoy your day and give thanks for every thing and every one you appreciate. Have a slice of pumpkin pie while you're at it.
