Thanksgiving 2014

For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you are like me, you have many reasons to be grateful and give thanks this year. Please join me in taking a moment on this day set aside to do so to reflect on how truly fortunate we are and give thanks.

May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy your day and the food, friends, family, furry and otherwise, that make it special.

Because I’m going to be even busier than usual with kitchen chores this year, I’m reposting one of my favorite Thanksgiving  posts, from 2012 (I hope it’s not the scary cat photo!):



…and in addition to all the other blessings

you have conferred on my reflective frame

I wish to thank you, Lord,

for the companionship of steadfast comrades

whose wit and wisdom and strength

help steer me through these tempestuous seas


of flattery and lies churned to fury by the ill will of demagogues. Amen.


A special thanks to all who visit here. I wish you all a peaceful, happy Thanksgiving – because there is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
