Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving: the ABC’s of Life

Thanksgiving

At this time of the year when giving thanks is so on our minds, I wanted to take this opportunity to offer some additional “words to live by” that I’ve treasured for a long time (so long, that I can’t remember where I found them; perhaps the author might read this and step up so I might acknowledge her authorship and give her my thanks).

Wishing you many reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving!

    1. Hi Ruth, so happy to hear from you! Hope you had a yummy Thanksgiving; my blog on Houston comes out soon, which will list you as a contributor for your great ideas. Cheers, Bettie

  1. WOW Bettie! A bug gave me the wonderful gift of time to click from one to another of your amazing posts. I am so impressed! Such grace and beauty, wisdom and practical advise. I loved everything I read and saw. Your Newport pictures filled me with awe and fond memories. Fifteen years ago, Byron and I spent two wonderful days exploring Newport after our niece’s Boston/Rock Harbor wedding celebrations. The Mansions and Cliff Walk reminded me so much of Mom, a sought after interior designer. Mom loved elegance and beauty. She would have loved living in Newport during the Gilded Age. I’ll look forward to more posts!

    1. So wonderful to hear from you, dear Lin. Here’s hoping you return soon for another Newport visit! xo Bettie
