Happy Thanksgiving

On my kitchen wall, above my sink, there hangs a short saying in a small frame.

"Take time to give thanks for the beauty of today"

Each time I pass that little framed picture, I do breathe a prayer of thanks. It feels oh, so good, to be aware of my blessings and to thank God for them.

How wonderful that we have a national holiday that encourages each of us to do this.

And so it is that today I want to express my thanks for my dear husband and daughter, all my family and all my friends, and for the constant flow of blessings that comes into my life because of them.

And I give thanks for you, my readers. I give thanks for my blogging buddies. Thanks for the friendships forming in the blogosphere because of our mutual interests.

May we all give thanks for our blessings. May we all have a Happy Thanksgiving! God bless us, everyone.


Thanksgiving last year--in the kitchen, well after dinner: start of the scarf-down of our homemade pies. (We made pumpkin, apple, and cherry pies!)
