Grateful, Thankful and Joyful...

Here we are just a few days before Thanksgiving. It's a busy time I know, but take just a few minutes and listen to this song. Really listen, and watch the video too, and read the lyrics. It's the lyrics that I find so moving and of course Josh Groban's incredible voice. I have loved this song from the first moment I heard it.

Since most of you may have already heard this, (he sold a zillion some copies) instead browse through some of my favorite images and Pinterest finds while listening. If you haven't heard this before, then you are in for a treat. Have a tissue handy though, it just might bring tears to your eyes, tears of gratitude and joy, I hope. Gratitude and Joy for all those things you yourself are Thankful for.

Thankful by Josh Groban

I am thankful for this beautiful uplifting song and Josh Groban's amazing voice.

A warm cinnamon candle, smells like home... that makes me thankful.

I am thankful for the beauty of nature and all the lovely animals.

I am grateful for my many blessings and being able to share with others.

Grateful for family and friends and the abundance of the earth.

Thankful for my sight to see the beauty all around me!

I am grateful  for warm fires and warm hearts.

I'm thankful for the everyday things that make our lives more pleasant.

I am grateful for being able to experience the joy of life....

And the closeness of a good friend.....

Even if they seem different from me.

  5. Its a pity we can't enjoy the scent of the candle as well! The picture of the swans is really beautiful - such vivid colours. My son couldn't stop looking at the bears - its been a long time since a photograph tickled him quite so much.
