In hard times, when millions of people are out of jobs, the economy is in rough shape, millions of people have contracted Covid-19, over 238 thousand deaths due to same, the rioting, Trump refusing to concede the election, and so much more, the depression and anger are high, and it’s easy to forget all that we have. And we have a lot. When I see a grumpy person at work, I want to point out that they have a job, they don’t have Covid, the woke up this morning and they’re alive—and right there is a lot to be grateful for.
In years past, we tried to find bearded men celebrating Thanksgiving, but believe it or not, it’s nigh on impossible. So this year we picked out things that we should all truly be thankful for, and yes, pictures of bearded men to represent those things. There will be some of you who don’t have all of these things, but I believe you will. I do.
And this time, there is no contest. No picking out your favorites. It just didn’t seem right. But hey, we’d love it if you write in comments here at Furry Friday what you’re thankful for. It would make our day.
Peace and Love!
And Happy Thanksgiving!

That we woke up this morning, the ultimate blessing!
Or if you prefer, tea. A simple pleasure that starts the day right.
However you define it, there is nothing like it.
Freedom of Religion
Which means any religion. Or none. Perfect.
They get us through the hards times, and laugh with us through the best.
Whether we are into exercise or not, health is a wonderful thing to have, especially during these trying times.
Hearth & Home
A place to hang our coat, relax, rest. Home if we have a hearth or not. One of the best blessings of all.
In whatever shape or form is right for you.
How wonderful that we can take that step, legally, to marry whoever makes us happy.
No matter if it’s dogs or cats we love most, or both, or rabbits or goats, our pet companions love us as much as we love them. Such unconditinal love is a blessing like no other.
Thanksgiving feasts, or a simple breakfast of eggs or lunch with a sandwich, the food that sustains us is something to be truly thankful for.
Times are tough, and having a job is one of the biggest blessings of all!
Hitting the road and going someplace new….
….because we all deserve a break from work.
The kind that comes with age. And living to an old age. And that brings these blessings full circle!
