If you watch the news these days you’d wonder if there is anything good happening in the world. All the news channels care about is the tragic, the horrific, the sensational, the controversial, shock, chaos, sadness, darkness.

Yes, these are a part of our world, but we have so much more to be thankful for today and every day. What does The Bear give thanks for? I recall a few of the thoughts, feelings, sounds and images from these past several days.

The promise of a new adventure in each new day; the quiet early-morning hours; my sweetie curled up in a favorite armchair nearby, quietly reading on her iPad; the solitude of the neighborhood on holiday; sunrise over the midwestern plains; a train packed full of friendly people; watching animals at the zoo yesterday; the glistening eyes of another creature probing my soul; a smile from a stranger at the corner store; a favorite quilt to wrap up in; notes from friends on Facebook; the sweet taste of eggnog in my coffee; the first nip of winter cold on my nose; preparations for a fine meal later today; the beauty of the stars at night. These are just a few of the happy thoughts that come to mind.

By thinking on these things, we manufacture our own happiness, and make a life of delight and adventure for ourselves and others here on planet Earth.

NASA - EarthAll the good and the bad are intertwined in this one beautiful planet we are a part of. This is all we have, this life of the world we share. All of it — one world.

It is enough. It is more than enough. It is too much to wrap one’s paws around. I am grateful to be alive, and thankful that I have YOU to share it with.


So I woke up early this¬†morning to start on preparations for a Tame Bear family Thanksgiving meal, and was greeted by a brief announcement from my friends at TimTech — Janelle, Tom, and Patrick, announcing a brand new Paid-To-Click site they are launching today. PandaProfits. Their new PTC is built on the Evolution script so it will be very familiar to those of you who are already building your PTC portfolio.

    As usual, your posts are right on. I have found that if I look for it then I will find it—something everyday to give thanks for, to be filled with joy and to share that with others. It can be so easy to just wallow in my own happenings, but I have found that is not healthy! Today I am giving thanks for my doctors and asking for their hands to be super charged and that when my MRI results come back, the cancer can be treated. Even if that does not happen, life is still precious and I plan on not missing one sunrise or sunset, one purr from my cats, laughing with my family until I rise from this earthly body. In the meantime, I read the Bears posts, and my friends blogs and enjoy my time.

    Thanks Bear, I hope you and yours have a beautiful season full of love and joy.

    How true your statement is.

    The national news, or should I say the national “Noise” is really all about brain washing you to think, its NEWS, when in fact it’s lies.

    That’s why we have so much dysfunctional in our society of today,because of the national media.

    Turn away from the national media and watch all the beauty that’s all around us from the noise…

  5. Hi Bear, That is beautiful. We all have to remember the art of Gratitude is very powerful.

    I am grateful everyday for the cats I have cuddling up to me, My husband, my facebook friends, the opportunities that open up to me everyday and even days like today where the wind is blowing and the rain is falling, but I am alive and have a roof over my head. The people starting to know and trust me.

    The media as you say in one of your replies is horrible and I normally turn off to the main stream media in my country because they only really show the doom and gloom.

    Have a great day
