#Thanksgiving isn’t just a one time a year kind of life! #living #large #BELIEVE

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”

~ Seneca

Thanksgiving beach “Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.”

~ Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Thankfulness. Gratitude. There is nothing like these to make what we have seem like enough. Like more. Like abundance.

Thanksgiving and the days surrounding it are filled with reminders to practice gratitude, to consciously appreciate the good things in our lives, and The Shell Lady and Crew are thankful for so much, including being able to revel in the bounty of the Sea and the opportunity to share it all with you. It has been an absolute joy getting to know those of you who have enjoyed our creations, shared your own ideas, and supported us in our adventure here.

Every day is a gift, storm or shine. Our wish for all this reaches is that you might give special attention to the prosperity in your lives and be grateful for the largesse and the lessons alike. We sure are.

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.”

~ Maya Angelou
