Thanksgiving Blessings

Embarkation of the Pilgrims by Robert W. Weir
U.S. Capital Rotunda 1837

With out a doubt, Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite holidays. It is one that is not filled with hopes of gifts or outdoor barbeques. It is a quiet holiday that is spent in the splendor of friends and family. It is a gathering to make memories and share stories of the past. The Thanksgiving meal may be grand or very simple. It may contain a turkey or tofu. It really does not matter as long as the thoughts and blessings of what we have are thick in our memories. So, to everyone this year I offer my Thanksgiving Blessings.
