What Are You Thankful For?

It's the time of the year when the subject of thanks takes center stage.  It's always seemed a little strange to me that there is a designated day of thankfulness.  Nonetheless,  I guess putting such a date on the calendar assures that we will all take time out of our busy lives for a little reflection.

I, like most everyone, prefer to think that I am regularly thankful for all that I have been blessed with.  I have a loving husband, two wonderful, kind (although not always to each other), accomplished children, and the world's cutest bulldog.  I have extended family and lifelong friends.  I have multitudes of acquaintances who are important to me as well.  Aside from little aches and pains, we are all in good health.  We are all lucky.

So often we think of the things we have as being what we should be thankful for.  And it is true that I am thankful that I have a lovely home and nice things filling that home.  I am thankful that, from time to time, I get to go on nice vacations or out to nice restaurants.  But as I am getting older, I am mostly thankful for the people around me;  the people who share my day with me, either close by or far away.

This brings me to all of you, the readers of You Little Tarte.  Some of you have been with me since the beginning and others of you have just found me.  However long we have been together, I am thankful that we have found one another.  I hope that I add a little something to your day, either a recipe or maybe just a  chuckle.  You certainly add to mine and for that I am truly thankful.

You Little Tarte will return on Monday, November, 28th.  Enjoy the holiday.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Nadine!

  2. Such a nice post! Since I began blogging and tweeting I too have added the wonderful people I have met through social media to my list of things I'm thankful for. The talent and inspiration from them is immeasurable and I have been fortunate enough to even meet a few *on-line* friends IRL. Best wishes to you and yours for a lovely Thanksgiving.
