Earlier this month, I had made the first wallpaper of a pair of designs on the idea of counting one's blessings and being thankful for the things that God has blessed us with. This wallpaper is the 2nd of the pair entitled, "Thankfulness", making it the 157th overall design to my gallery. Since Thanksgiving Day (for us here in America) is being celebrated tomorrow, I wanted to post this today as I will be away from my home base and on the road the rest of the week to be with family.

Yes, indeed, the Thanksgiving holiday is a special and meaningful time for me. Not just because I have many fond memories of gigantic delicious dinners around the table with friends and family and sharing those precious moments with them, but also it's like a built-in reminder to give thanks for what we have.

This picture is a throw-back to what has typically been portrayed to us as the type of harvest corn that the Pilgrims and American Indians may have had back when the first Thanksgiving was shared. Fast forward to today, and Thanksgiving is celebrated all over the world - however, just not all on the same day.

I think Cicero had something there when he said that "a thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues." We need to start being more thankful for what we have and in so doing, we start seeing that all we have is usually all we need.

As Johnson Oatman wrote in the chorus of an old hymnal back in 1897, "Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your many blessings, see what God hath done."
