Focusing on Life: Give Thanks

There are so many things in life that I give thanks for. My health, friends and family, my beads, and the list goes on  and on. I chose to show our Thanksgiving table for my photo. It was not at my house this year. I celebrated at my son and his fiance's house. I am very glad that he found her and she will be joining our family soon. I am happy to be part of her family too. To see what the others are giving thanks for click on sally's link http://thestudiosublime.com/blog-2/  I want to thank Sally for this wonderful experience. I am so glad that I got to meet all the other participants and I learned more about me too.

  3. Thanx Shel. I agree about the photo journey. I joined hoping to become a better photographer but I learned more about me than about photography.

  5. What a pretty table! I got the same habit from my mother - taking a photo of the table setting. She used to make us all wait to be seated so we could photograph the table laden with all her goodies. Probably good because once our troop sat down, it was a flurry of food. Glad you spent the holiday with loved ones!

    1. Thanx Paula. I haven't taken a table pic before. I wanted to respect my families privacy and not post pics of them so I took a table shot. I was glad to be with family this Thanksgiving.
