A Lot to Be Thankful For

As I spend this Thanksgiving day with my family, I wanted to share some things I'm thankful for these days.

I'm thankful for:
  • God. I receive many blessings on a daily basis and I'm certain they could only come from something much bigger and more powerful than ordinary humans. 
  • The ability to see so many of these blessings. 
  • My family, both American and Indian.
  • This blog and the opportunity it has given me to grow as a person, meet others and share my experience.
I could go on and on and list all the details but I know many of you had rather be spending time with your family today. So as I cut the turkey and dig into the stuffing with my family, I wish you all the best for seeing and discovering the beautiful joy of your life on a day to day basis in the upcoming year.

  1. I totally agree with the "no stress" part, life in India can be so chaotic, with lots of unplanned things popping up on a whim, protests blocking the road....anything! I feel so relaxed after I get back, as if I've stepped off a roller coaster! LOL

  2. There is a thanks giving ceremony in India also. It is called "Makar Sankranti" and particularly "Lohri" in Punjab. It is a harvest festival.

  4. Interesting. Makar Sankranti and Lohri are very different from our Thanksgiving celebrations. Our Thanksgiving is a remembrance of the first year settlers here in the US managed to reap a full harvest; a celebration of their learning to survive here and feed themselves. We have harvest festivals here that are more similar to Lohri than the traditional Thanksgiving.
