...the pilgrims managed to set aside a day of giving thanks.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion into clarity. ... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Wishing all of my family and friends a wonderful Thanksgiving. Travel safe, be warm, share in the delight of the day. May you and yours be Blessed with the joy of being expected. Happy Thanksgiving.
On a side note; There will only be two of us at this holiday table this year as our children will be visiting with their in-laws. As it so happens our wedding anniversary falls on this day of thanks and so as we started out as two, we will celebrate our 38th year of marriage as two and toast each other to many, many more filled with love, laughter, patience, friendship, smiles, tears and immeasurable joy.
