Every year, as Thanksgiving approaches the entire city/country/state gets ready for the holiday, decorating everything with the colors of the season (I adore Orange, Brown and Cream mixed together!), shops offering gift ideas, shopping sales, and turkey deals. All the cooking shows on TV focused on Thanksgiving, giving you new ideas for the same traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
And then on the day of you can walk around and smell the scents coming out of bustling kitchens, all sweet and warm and yummy. Not to mention the amazing flavors! I could eat a whole yam & marshmallow casserole right now!!
Of course one of the things I love about this holiday is how everyone gets together as a family (even if it's just friends) to be thankful for all their good fortune thus far. It's amazing how this one day a year can get everyone thinking on what they have and not on what they don't, and be thankful for it. If only we could all be more thankful on a daily basis rather than complain and seek what we do not have, it'd be Thanksgiving every day!

Even though we do not celebrate this holiday in Israel I am still so very Thankful...
For my amazing mom who's always by my side
For the strength I did not know I had in me that got me through these past few months
For good friends
For my best girlfriends
For warm days (even now at the end of November!)
For having a place I call home
For my talents
For being able to laugh it out
For every moment I get to spend with my grandpa
For the promotion at work
For all my good fortune
For the way my someone looks at me
For all my blog & internet friends
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
