HAPPY THANKSGIVING

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!

I was looking back at the very first thanksgiving post – I wrote for this blog in 2011

“HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
I am watching the MACY”S parade and
thinking about how I have so much
to be Thankful for this
year.
My Kids (2012)
….
My Family… my Home…. my Friends…my Health
my Dog…my painting…
my new dishwasher…
…life in general…
And one of the things I am really Thankful for is
YOU!
My Old Country House 
and Lesli DeVito Paintings
Blog followers,
…readers, friends
supporters in ways you will never know!
Thank you and
I hope that each and every one of you is enjoying this day
and eating a ton!
Gratitude is a wonderful thing!
Have  safe and wonderful
Thanksgiving!”

So much has changed and yet – everything I said in 2011 (except the new dishwasher part) is true today – 8 years later. I am blessed beyond measure. I have love around me in all directions and today I am surrounded by my 4 favorite people – two now home from college.

It is so very easy to be taken down by all the busy and sad and stress that is an everyday part of our lives – or at least mine – and when I STOP – take a breath and remember WHO I do it all for – WHY I do what I do and WHERE I am so fortunate to live – I can only be GRATEFUL and want to give back in any way I possibly can –

I am thankful for you !!!!
