Thanksgiving and contentment

I love the sky and the canopy it forms over me, no matter what the weather.  After several beautiful cloudless days the skies became overcast overnight.  Today was grey and warm, not at all like Thanksgiving should be. The boys and I were on the last leg of our evening walk when I realized that the grey skies had parted to reveal a beautiful sunset.  Through the trees and around the houses I could see a bright pink, medium orange, and a hint of yellow sunset accented by the grey clouds caught in the display.

It only lasted a few minutes and then the clouds closed back over the western sky. As I watched I realized how much I have to be thankful for, nothing specific.  I just knew that the things I complain about are really petty and that, in spite of various concerns, I have plenty.  And, there is contentment in that!
