A Bountiful Harvest

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and it’s also Wednesday which means it’s time for a Wednesday Word link up. This link up is hosted by Debbie. Each week she provides a word prompt to write about. This week’s word is bountiful. How fitting, with tomorrow’s holiday!

Obviously, I’m going to write about Thanksgiving. How can I not? Many of us will be sitting down to a large feast with family and friends tomorrow. It’s a time to come together and share a bountiful meal as we give thanks for the many blessings in our lives.

“As the harvest season draws to a close and our storehouses bulge with the bounty of the land, it is our desire to observe, in the custom and tradition of our forebears, a special day dedicated to giving thanks to God – a day on which to lay aside our daily tasks and cares and pay joyous homage to Him.”

-President John F. Kennedy, 1964 Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday tomorrow. Give thanks, count your blessings one by one, and have gratitude for the good things you have in life.


When you focus on the things you have, instead of what you don’t, it makes for a happier life. I’m thankful for family and friends, health, the ability to run, a roof over my head, a free country where I can sleep in peace at night, and another day here on Earth.

I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for?

  1. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I ran through a few things I’m thankful for when I woke up: Chester made it to today, a lot of the hard work is done, we have ample food & a warm home, I CAN run, maybe I’ll run my first turkey trot since we’re not traveling (I didn’t per register so we’ll see if any spots are left).

  2. Your quote, “When you focus on the things you have, instead of what you don’t, it makes for a happier life,” is the absolute truth. Well said!

    Hope your Thanksgiving weekend has been wonderful! Thanks for linking up!
