“A woman’s health is her capital…Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart”

-Seneca, Roman philosopher

Dear Red Hot Mamas,

Once again, Thanksgiving has rolled around this year. It is a time when many of us begin to think about the oodles of things that we are thankful for. Gratitude is a virtue. And, we all have things to be grateful for. The more we practice gratitude, the more we reap the benefit of embracing a more joyful life.

Sharing and caring about others around you is an uplifting experience which makes us feel happy. Gratitude is not about the me, but about the us. And, when we are helping those who need us and offering them comfort, it leads to appreciation and makes us feel happy. It’s all about the connection with others, thinking about the bigger picture outside of ourselves.

So this Thanksgiving I would encourage you to think about the people who matter, the small and big things you are grateful for.

Many of us are thankful for:

Good health

Even if it isn’t perfect, you have the ability to try to make it better.

Your life

Yes, it is a gift. Thousands of lives are not able to survive and be able to appreciate life due to life’s circumstances. So, be grateful that you have had the chance to be alive today. You are able to experience relationships by the virtue of being alive. That is truly something to be grateful for.

Having a Partner

Someone who cares for you, who is supportive and simply available by being alongside of you.

Good friends 

Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves. They comfort us and help us through tough times in our lives. They also make us laugh and remind us about what life is all about.


Which offer unconditional love to us.


Such as Thanksgiving that revolves around family, friends and giving thanks.

So, in closing, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy feelings of joy and count your blessings of all you have in your live.

Good health to you all,

Karen Giblin
