A Year Full of Blessings

One of my favorite quotes about thanksgiving/being thankful is the one by Oprah Winfrey that went like this:

Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never ever have enough.

So in the spirit of the season, allow me to share some beautiful thoughts.

“Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” ~ Marcus Aurelius

“If we magnified blessings as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.” ~ John Wooden

“Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.” ~ Alphonse Karr

“It isn’t what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.” ~ Author Unknown

In the busy world of the web, I borrowed the following memes:

Have a peaceful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all the posts you have shared and all the visits you have made here.

Tahoe City Sunset

The marina at Tahoe City was our next stop on the first day of our Tahoe vacation. The sky was particularly pretty that day and we thought that the sunset would be equally pretty also. We were proven correct. And so we shot at the sky to our hearts' content. I have a problem with taking more pictures than necessary, but when sky watching you just cannot take one photo can you?

When we could no longer take any more shots (it was getting dark) we left the marina and headed across the street to check out the dining scene.
