Being Thankful and Finding the Golden Nuggets

I love Thanksgiving. Being grateful and food, what is not to love about that. However, I think it is important to be thankful on a daily basis. I have come to realize that no matter who you are, life will hand you good stuff and what we see as bad stuff. I think there is a sort of balance to it. No matter what bad stuff happens there is always what I call a golden nugget, always something sweet and gleaming to focus on in each day. Some days I have to look hard for the nugget, but it is always there and when I find it I am so grateful, sometimes the bad stuff turns out to be a nugget in disguise :-). I am wishing you all a wonderful, gleaming Thanksgiving! Lots of Love.
P.S. I am giving away free shipping in the US in my ETSY shop until Monday!

Happy thanksgiving, Annie. So much to be thankful for! It is true, there is always something positive to focus on, even when sometimes it feels there is not. I just read a book where a Native American Healer talked about "what is bad is good."
Have a happy day! Will you be eating tofurkey?

What on earth is tofurkey? For real? I am not a massive tofu fan but I do like quorn and use it a lot. Loads of vegetarians in my family and so for holiday occasions I quite often make Spanakopita which is totally yum, a Greek cheese & spinach pie that seems to go down well with everyone. Also I do a mean mixed mushroom lasagne with pesto which is only worth doing if you've a crowd coming over.

OK ... I'm sure it is becoming clear to you that I can talk/write about food as an olympic sport! Happy Thanksgiving to you Annie. I hope today the gold nuggets are plentiful.

Love and hugs xx Jos
