NOV 25, 21 .. HAPPY, JOYOUS, THANKSGIVING DAY 2021

For many, hopefully for perhaps most of us, Thanksgiving Day is a day to spend with our families, enjoy a great meal, maybe watch some football, watch the New York City Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on T.V. and perhaps take a few moments to give gratitude for all we have to be grateful for.

Gratitude.

As powerful as our minds are, at one micro second, all our minds can do is focus upon one thing.

This concept of gratitude is so powerful. You see, IF we can focus upon those things we are grateful for, we are not able, at the same time, to focus upon those things that are bothering us. 

I once had a friend (who was down-in-the-dumps mentally) tell me that he had nothing to be greatful for.

That brought to mind another long term friend who had suffered life threatening burns for which he was hospitalized for a period of time.

Whenever someone said to him that they had nothing to be grateful for, he would calmly say, with intense passion : 

"Be grateful that you are not on fire !"

And he meant it !

On this Thanksgiving Day, Patti and I are grateful for our Winter Wonderland here in Anchorage, Alaska, and for our life together.

Just few photos to show you what we mean by our Winter Wonderland.

To begin, a photo from the front porch of our building.

Four photos adjacent to our building.




The below photo 'looks-back' at the area from which the above photos were taken.

The following photos were all taken in our immediate neighborhood.










Could we complain about our bone-chilling cold reaching below 5°F below zero? Yes we sure could. 

Could we complain about the work involved in removing snow from, and all around, our truck? 


Yes! We sure could! We choose not to focus on the negative.

We'll close out this Thanksgiving Day Post with the following photos.





Our Condo is behind us in the below photo showing Sitka Street, the road out of our neighborhood

May you all have a happy and a joyous Thanksgiving Day 2021.

Cap and Patti
