Happy Thanksgiving to my American Friends.

Even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, I would like to wish all of my
American bloggy friends a very 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.  Melody Beattie

Sending you all my very best wishes always,
Natasha In Oz 


  1. Thank you for that and also for your recent comments on my blog. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Australia. What a wonderful country you live in. I fell in love with those adorable koala bears. I'm adding you to my favorites so that I can feel like I still have a connection to the land down under :).

  2. Lovely words and picture, I can only join in and say "Happy Thanksgiving" too. Have a lovely day, Love from London x

  3. I echo those sentiments, and what a lovely poem on gratitude.

  4. I echo those sentiments exactly, Natasha, and what a beautiful poem on gratitude.

  5. Thanks Natasha, have a great day:@)

  6. Thank you for being a dear sweet friend! Enjoy some sunshine for us today! (we are having a cold freezing rain!)

  7. Thank you Natasha!! You have a wonderful day!

  8. Thank you! What a beautiful quote! I need that on my blog! Mind if I copy it?
    Have a great day!

  9. Thank you very much Natasha...you are so kind! How happy I am to discover your lovely blogs and you. Your quotes are perfectly chosen and a pleasure to read as well.
    Good thoughts to you!
    P.S. Your holiday music (from the Christmas blog) is playing as I write this and is such a joy to hear. Thank you!!! (Also...you had my all time favorite quote from Charlie Brown's Christmas on it as well...I memorized that when I was nine!)

  10. Thank you Natasha and beautiful poem you chose to share with us!
    Have a great weekend and enjoy your nice weather. We are starting to get a little cold here, temp. around 0C to 8C and a light rain!
    Take care!

  11. Natasha,
    Thanks for the lovely visit and thanksgiving wishes! I wish you a lovely week. I will now pop over to your Christmas blog. I am lovin' the photo over there.

  12. Thanks for the Happy Thanksgiving wishes. I read something today that made me think of you. The article stated that this Friday is the biggest shopping for you as well. Is that correct? It is the Thanksgiving holiday that triggers our Christmas shopping because most people have Thursday and Friday off. But since Thursday is not a holiday for you I am wondering why Friday would be a big shopping day. Holiday or not I hope your day was wonderful.

  13. Thanks! Wonderful post!

    I am doing a little catch up here on your blog as our internet was out due to a snow storm.
