Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ~E.P. Powell



Today we'll be spending our meal together as a small family: DH, DD, Dd, Dc and I but we will be seeing all of the in-laws later in the afternoon.

In the meantime, let me be thankful:
  • For my family, especially my mother (wish you were here!)
  • For my friends, including all of you in blogger-land
  • For my material blessings -- a home, clothing, food and luxuries like BOOKS!
  • For my health
  • For my fortune in living here in the United States

  • What are you thankful for?

    Family, friends, the love in my life, our relatively worry-free existence.

    Sorry I haven't been around much... things have been a bit on the insane side.

    Sending you and yours warmth and love on Thanksgiving, Marianne!
