As Thanksgiving approaches in the next few days, I am so grateful to the blog contributors who faithfully each month take the time to put together their take on the monthly theme.  Without them there would be no Share Six.  You ladies are amazing and I love being a part of this group with you.

I am also thankful for each of our wonderful artists who contribute not only on the Facebook page but also on the Instagram page.  Interaction is key and we love seeing all your beautiful work on our page.  Thank you to all of you who have contributed.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them ~ JFK

I am personally grateful that this year has been a culmination of a long wait for my daughter and her fiance.  That he is finally home and that within the week we will have a wedding.  I am thankful that I have the opportunity to share in this beautiful moment.  I cannot wait.

As always at this time of year (although it should definitely be all year), taking the opportunity to reflect on those around us who may need more than we realize.  It may be someone who is older, someone who is lonely, someone who may be dealing with an illness, someone who has a new baby. It is always a blessing to reach out a helping hand.  I was taught very early in life that it is not what we receive but what we give.  So give someone a hug, share some laughter, take a moment to sit down and chat, love on someone.  All of these little moments may be huge in someone else’s life.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all  ~  Sharleen

I am thankful for the gift of photography, without the passion and dedication to improve that I have for this amazing hobby I would not have the many, many captures of my children that I hold dear. These images are priceless to me and I feel very humbled and grateful to be able to look back on how much they have grown over my photography journey so far.

Thanksgiving: A time of gratitude for the abundant blessings in our lives. When the world seems hazy and dark, gratitude always brings my heart to the light. To hope. May your heart be filled with thanks as you see and seek light in your days.

We wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.  If you are traveling, please travel safely.  Take time to be still in the bustle of the day, enjoy the moments, tell you loved ones how much you love them.

Take some time to remember those men and women who are actively fighting the fires in California and give thanks for people like them.  Give thanks for all the lives that have been saved.  Keep those that have lost so much in your thoughts as well.

Happy Thanksgiving
