Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.




“Come along inside…
We’ll see if tea and buns can make the world a better place…”

The month of November has been a particularly difficult month at this end. Some challenges made it impossible to perform any task on Purpleraysblog for the better part of the month.

I thank my friends who kept faith with the blog during the trying moments; especially those who noticed my absence and left encouraging enquiries! I sure missed everyone and thank goodness I’m back, albeit half steam!

During the difficult times I found comfort in a popular poem said to have been written by an unknown author and simply titled, “BE THANKFUL”

An excerpt from the poem reads as follows:


“Be thankful for the difficult times.

During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations

Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge

Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes

They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary

Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are

also thankful for the setbacks.”
