Thanksgiving and give thanks

By spotogspindel | November 26, 2009


Thanksgiving is a wonderful tradition, that hasn´t reached Norway yet. The soul of Thanksgiving is is the name: to give thanks, to be grateful all the things we´ve got. Traditionally it was thanking God  for the harvest. Now, I feel , we have so much more to be thankful for, we can´t really limit ourselves to just the food. I came across Carla Dornacker´s blog a little too late to join in her project of giving thanks. But please visit her site, and read about what she and all the others that have joined her project, are thankful for.


It is such a great idea. And next year, I am definitely in!


It has given me an idea already for this year though. For my next ship, I would like to make a big picture called “Give thanks”. I would really appreciate it if any of you could help me, by leaving a comment simply answering the question:

What are you grateful for?

    I am grateful for many things, not least of which is … discovering your little world and path thru the woods! Lovely art, Janne, and your personality really shines thru. I especially love the “Loves Lives Here Come on In” piece — wow, I could smile at that every day!
