Blue Monday - Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you.

See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday! If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

This is the time of the year when we stop and specifically thank God for our blessings. Remember the chorus to the old hymn? The words are here:

♪ Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done. ♬  (Makes me want to hum.)

1. One of the things on my list of blessings is YOU. I enjoy playing Blue Monday with you each week, and I appreciate your kind comments. I feel that I have found many Blogger friends.

2. I found this picture online, and even though I'm a city gal, it says Thanksgiving to me. I'm thankful for living in such a bountiful and  beautiful country.

3. I'm thankful that we'll be with my daughter, son-in-law, and their four children for dinner this year. I'm bringing pumpkin pie, and she and the granddaughters will do the rest of the cooking.

4. I'm thankful for my son, daughter-in-law, for their three children, and two sons-in-law. They live close by, and we get to visit them frequently.

Name one or two things for which you are most thankful.

Happy Blue Monday!

I love your blue smiley face! Our thanksgiving (Canada) was in October, but one thing I most thankful for is my Hubbers, he is my best friend and looks after me very well! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Sally
I am awarding you a Full Blue this week for outstanding performance on behalf of all bloggers and I am thankful to you and Blue Monday every week - even when it is tricky to decide what to post!!
I am most thankful for my lovely family, that we are all fit and well and we live in an amazing country which is beautiful, safe and fun to explore.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Thanksgiving - a lovely tradition. Thank you Sally for hosting Blue Monday - one of my favorite memes. The Thanksgiving photo you shared appeals highly to the country girl in me. Glad you will be with your loved ones for Thanksgiving.

We don't have such a tradition here, but I really love and appreciate this wonderful tradition.
I'm most thankful for my better health and caring husband.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I am also thankful to live in a country of freedom and abundance. I get to spend Thanksgiving with my 5 grandkids (one girl) and son and daughter-in-law who live close by, and Christmas with my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson from SF.

Happy Thanksgiving, Sally! Since Christmas is coming soon, we won't make the 7-9 hours. drive to our kids this time.

About the link-up - it's the right pic, but the wrong post (it's the post from last week). Somehow I couldn't change the post. Don't know if you want/need to do something about it... Have a great Monday!

Good morning Sally, We are in Kissimmee with our daughter Diana and family. We just returned yesterday from a Disney cruise to the Bahamas. What a grand time we had with Diana and family. Ashley isn't home from college yet but our grandsons came along. (cousins) and had a blast. I posted a bit about the cruise today.

You are blessed for so many reasons my dear friend. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Your pics are very cute.

Gosh Sally, just thinking about the many blessings we have, I could go on and on. I am thankful for a loving family who love to be together and who love each other so much. I am also thankful for a lifetime of blessings too many to count.

Blessings to you and yours,

I'll be singing and counting my blessings all day. Always loved singing that song in church and still do today. Neat Blue Smiley, too. Thanks for hosting and hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I have a lot to be thankful for, but the most important is my health. It is not perfect but so much better off than a lot of others. Have a wonderful day with your family

Hi Sally, getting back so you don't have to keep wondering. it's the right post, but the title underneath my thumbnail should be "Thanksgiving at Beaverdam" - that's all:)

Hi Sally! Better late than never! I missed last week and feel so badly. I was a little under the weather. Our office is moving and yikes! It is nerve racking! But better than the last time our office moved, it was blizzard conditions! LOL!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Good to be here because I love all of you so much with all the great blues you share! Hugs and Blessings, Anne
