I Am Thankful...

I was scared that at some point the police was going to be barging through.
Maybe the military or FBI would make a move through our gorgeous windows.
It should had been illegal I thought...
We should be apprehended.

Oh Glorious South... 

Food for miles and as far as our eyes could see which made me feel blessed and grateful but mindful of the many that don't have this much.
I felt as if I was stealing the bounty of others...
The happiness of being surrounded by so many loved ones and the pride I felt after I delivered the perfect turkey...

You will find sightings of hearts on my blog among the clouds...
Among the veggies...


To follow a sunset that was so beautiful it hurt...

Tybee Island, GA

The golden light reflecting on their faces the calmness and stillness...
I felt my heart could burst of so much I have been bestow upon...
Why do I question such serenity...

Why do we feel like we are being tricked if everything is going alright...
I take a deep breath and breathe it all out...
I am here and this is now...

I take another deep breath lift my head to the skies...
I am Thankful...

  1. That was a beautiful post!

    that should be our mantra, we could get T shirts! :)


  3. Looks like you had an awesome Thanksgiving. Love the pictures. Nice looking family. Being blessing is a priviledged many take advantage of. But you are so right to give thanks.

  8. Wow - your photography is gorgeous!
    I love this post and also the significance of the heart-shaped potato...too bad there wasn't a way to preserve that one!
    Being Canadian, we had our Thanksgiving in early October, but thanks for this reminder that we should continue to be thankful for what we have.
    Your blog rocks!

  9. Nice! looks almost like my palm tree lined sky.

    The beauty of nature = food for the spirit.

  10. I am so lucky to have a wonderful cousin such as yourself that thinks like I do. When we have so much food in front of us, we think of the many that doesn't. I often wondered if others thought like I did...during a celebration or holiday enjoying so much food with many people around others also remember the many that are not blessed in that way.
