Let the celebrations begin……Happy Thanksgiving*

It is that wonderful time of the year again. The time I reflect and think about all of the things I am grateful for in this life. I tend to have these moments all year long, but it seems like they mean more at Thanksgiving. I am one of those people that like to go around the dinner table and have everyone share with each other. My family and friends expect these moments, new guests to my home just give me that look. lol I just ask everyone to share one event in their life in 2012 that really made them grateful to be who they may be. I treasure each day I am given, so I would hope others could say the same.

This year my COURAGE to keep moving ahead was tested often. I have had some MINOR health issues that I let get to me this year. Usually I just ignore them. I have had my mom undergoing various little medical treatments that made me think too much about her aging. We all age, right? I have been blessed with my son who moved to Texas moving back home. I needed the courage to get him home safe. He is now already working at another job and is doing well.I have had to balance negative feelings with more positive feelings when I was in the position of helping some friends or family members in a crisis situation. I wanted to remain strong so I could help them succeed. If you look up my name and its definition….it does seem to fit.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luisa is a female name of German originΒ  which means “glorious warrior”.

So, I hope all of you reading this post have something to be grateful for. May you all enjoy Thanksgiving with your family and friends with many smiles. May you have many cherished memories. I want to leave you all with this beautiful passage I found.

The Giver of Gifts

May the Giver of Gifts give unto you

that which is good and that which is true:

The will to help and the courage to do:

A heart that can sing the whole day through

Whether the skies be gray or blue-

May the Giver of Gifts give these to you.

Believe in Yourself;

Luisa Doraz

  2. A wonderful sentiment – Just a thought – You have so many inspirational ideas and prose – have you thought about sharing some of those wonderful moments with others through greeting cards? My human says the “cover” needs to come off of “your light.” Sandy

  4. Hi there Glorious Warrior!!! Ageing really sucks don’t it??? Glad your son found another job back home & I enjoyed the lovely poem. Even though we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia we sure do have lots to be thankful for to the Great Giver of Good Gifts on a daily basis. Have a great weekend Louisa!!!
