Happy Thanksgiving

A Happy Thanksgiving from Bob, Betty, Bailey, and the Satisfying Retirement family.

You may be surrounded by your family and looking forward to a traditional meal. You may be far from home but know there are people who love you. You may be serving our country somewhere that looks nothing like home. You may be alone for the first Thanksgiving after a major life change. You may be alone, happy and thankful for the life you have chosen. 

Whatever state you find yourself today, I sincerely wish you a peaceful, joyous day. We all have blessings regardless of where we find ourselves. Today is the day to think about them and celebrate that part of our life.

For readers who are not in the United States or do not celebrate this holiday, my same hope for you remains: life is a heck of a ride. Enjoy it, cherish it, and love anyone and everyone you can.

Please join me for a moment to think about all those left homeless or devastated by the on-going California fires, the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico, the floods in Japan and India...all the natural disasters around the world in 2018 that left so many suffering. Our wish is their future be brighter and one day life again holds things to be thankful for. 


  1. Lovely post, Bob, and so well said. Thanksgiving blessings to you and your family, as well.

  2. A very safe and happy Thanksgiving to you and Betty, as well as all your readers!

  3. Wishing you and yours a loving and peaceful Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving Bob! And to the rest of your family too. May everyone here in the U.S. and around the world be reminded to be grateful for the good in our lives today and every day. ~Kathy
