The Thanksgiving List

     I was introduced to the thanksgiving list a few years ago where we would say what we are thankful for. It's a good exercise. It puts some meaning into Thanksgiving and leads us to stop and  appreciate things .

  Since this is the blog world I thought I would keep my list connected to the blog world.

   1. I'm thankful for the people who follow my blog. You are the ones who put meaning into what I write. I very much appreciate that people stop by and visit Hiawatha House.

   2. I'm thankful for all the great blogs that I get to read. I go for variety . So some blogs publish excellent photography. Others are humorous. Some blogs are very descriptive other other places. Other blogs relate daily life. Many blogs have very attractive layouts. Some blogs stick to a very narrow topic that is covered in depth. I have to be thankful that you work so hard on your blogs and that I benefit from it.

    3.I'm thankful for comments. Comments do many things. Comments make me think more about what I wrote. Comments often gently show another point of view. Comments are always enlightening for me!

    4. I'm thankful for the genuine friendship of fellow bloggers. You have to really care to read and comment on what I write. You pick up on things that you like and things that I struggle with. Thanks for the help and support.

     5. Some of you are great huggers! So thanks for the hugs. They are most appreciated. 

     I look forward to more high quality blogging.

  3. Those are the same reasons I like blogging too. The diversity of people you meet and have contact with all over the world. You get an image in someones life and can learn from that.

  4. My Mom always gave the most loving hugs and she always gave them freely. People that were not huggers, if you know what I mean, became huggers because of my Mom - there is so much to be said in a hug. I enjoy the variety and spice that is brought into my life with my fellow bloggers - I enjoy what I learn through people's different lives and like you Sir Red, I embrace the knowledge. Have a wonderful day :)

  12. Red you're so awesome! I'm grateful to have 'met' you and that you share all you do, I've learned through what you share and I've chuckled at times, felt my heart strings tugged and what I especially love about you, you're real with no pretensions about you at all.

    Have yourself a wonderful week!

  15. I enjoyed your blog you are a very warm gentleman. You write from the heart. I respect you very much. I am a hugger too. To men I pat them on the back when I feel that they are not a hugger. My heart strings know when to hug and not to hug in person.On my blog comments I usually give hugs as a signature or just huggies. I also smile in person .
    My nickname is sunshine to many here that know me in person. I enjoy blog people also and they are different and like you say. People come from a big world.

    Happy Thanksgiving Red.

    Glad you added me as one of your friends and I to you.

    Huggies
