Judith Glende: Thanks Be For Giving

(In honor of our friend, Judy, who passed away last week, we are re-posting her contributions to Grateful Living this week...)

When my son was little he use to say "Thanks Be For Giving" instead of Thanksgiving. His special phrase has stuck with me ever since and it made so much sense to me.

 I give thanks that he walked through the door today so happy to be home from school for his "Thanks Be For Giving" break.

I give thanks to be able to celebrate this holiday one year after a scary diagnosis of stage II Melanoma. I dodged a bullet last year and I give thanks everyday for that.

I give thanks to have a job that I love and the most supportive husband and son I could ask for. The two people that know me the best and still love me!

I give thanks for the joy in my customers eyes as they covet that special piece of jewelry I made because it speaks to them.

I am a lucky girl and give thanks for giving~

Giving Thanks; a beautiful thing to remember no matter the circumstance. Thank you.
