Before I head into the holiday, I'd like to wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you're surrounded by friends, family and love.
I find that if every day, I count at least 5 things that I'm grateful for, I end up counting so many more! Even on a tough day it works. It really helps me to keep things in perspective and to see the riches in my life. I encourage you all to try it some time.
When I think of Thanksgiving this classic painting comes to mind.
Homecoming, Norman Rockwell
It is the epitome of joy and thankfulness and reminds me of my song, "Donna Danced" (which you'll find free download of here), the story of my uncle Ted Tomanek, who was a gunner during WWII and his sister, my mother, Donna (Tomanek) DeChant. My mother was very young when three of her brothers were away at war. She adored my uncle Ted and used to dance in the living room with his photograph. Here is a photo of Teddy and Donna:
