Sooooo, It's Thursday

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
Aesop


Am I feeling thankful? Well that's a tough one. Am I thankful for the ice which keeps most of my horses cooped up, not so much. I surely am not thankful for the miserable winter we have been enduring. 

I think I prefer the word gratitude to thankful. I know it's splitting hairs, that they mean the same thing, but gratitude has a deeper impression to me. I can be thankful for food in my house, but I would be grateful if I'm down on luck and hungry and someone feeds me.

I know too many people who are struggling to hang onto their lives. I've seen despair and gratitude. I have much to be thankful for.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
