A Long, Long Time Ago
It Was ALL About Food

From My Heart


By rote, at this time of year we state the "things we're thankful for", the gifts we have of family, friends and food. Carole's ToT has me thinking a little harder about what I am thankful for in this moment.

1. I am grateful for being aware of where I am right now, in this place, with the sound of friends around me.
2. I am grateful for the eye sight that allows me to easily read the words I am typing.
3. I am grateful for the touch in my fingertips and for the sound of the keyboard as they type each letter.
4. I am grateful for the hot tea steeping in my cup, for the warmth of the liquid the elegant taste of the tea, as it fills my mouth.
5. I am grateful for the amazing piece of chocolate truffle my tongue awaits.
6. I am grateful for task at hand and the ability to use my brain (limited as it is).
7. I am grateful Thanksgiving will be with others for the first time in years. I am grateful for the friend who is brave enough to invite me to dinner. She is sure she can provide a safe (as in GF) and delicious meal. My being GF impacts my friends and I am grateful for all who put up with my limitations.
8. I am grateful for the many of the modern conveniences that make life easier, safer, luxuriously so for many of us.
9. I am grateful for the stalwart, caring man who is my partner, my husband, my dearest friend.
10. I am grateful for every breath I take.

Wishing you all a very, very Happy Thanksgiving.


I'm grateful for YOU!!

Awww, geez, you've got me all verklempt this morning with this list. It's perfect and so YOU. I am grateful for every breath you take,too.

You are blessed!

I recently started a gratitude journal. I am blessed.

Well said, Dear. And, a happy and blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Beautiful photo! So grateful to call you friend and for every breath you take!

Margene, this is a lovely list. I am very grateful for people like you, who remind me to be present and to practice gratitude. I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving with friends.

Thank you for the reminder of how much we have to be thankful for . . . in every moment of each day. Thank you for your friendship, Margene.

Beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving, Margene!

we are grateful for you, and the fact that you keep this blog going. it helps to remind me that we are connected to a greater universe. Happy TG all

Beautiful thoughts!

I echo the theme: I am grateful for you, my friend.

Very insightful list! Have a blessed Thanksgiving Margene :-)

I am grateful you take time to show all of us your lovely mountains though your much appreciated blogging. I thank you, it means more to me than you will ever know.

This is such a mindful list. Thank you.

What an amazing list! I'm thankful for your mountain photos. Every time you post a new one, I'm sure that it can't be topped, but they are all stunning in so many different ways. This is one of my favorites - so far!


Great list! This year, the first time I wrote out things I'm thankful for, I listed seeing and hearing. I've now seen those things mentioned on several blogs. It's kind of surprising that we're all thinking along the same lines. But it really is the small things, isn't it?

Lovely list of things we use/need every day and they are so readily available!

Beautiful list. My sister and dad are celiac and we have adjusted meals just fine. My thanksgiving will be a gf one and it's going to have lots of good food!! Happy thanksgiving and I'm glad I found you through the blogosphere.

Happy Thanksgiving, Margene! Your list reminds me to pay attention...so many of the things I hardly notice are the things that make my life worth living! (and we aren't gluten free on purpose, but except for dessert - and even then there is homemade rum raisin ice cream :-) - you'd have a full meal at my house!)

#7 - Yes. I am grateful for my amazing SIL who's great at doing GF. :)

Amazing list! Happy Thanksgiving!

WOW! Yet another amazingly spectacular photo. Thx for sharing.
You are always in the right place at the right time.
