Our Last Thanksgiving quote before the big day!

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

John F. Kennedy

My Idea of the Perfect Thanksgiving Dinner!

Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie.
Jim Davis

He who is not thankfull

It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for. He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire. Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient. But a thankful heart hath a continual feast." 

W.J. Cameron 

A nice reminder for those who feel this way!

Today's Thanksgiving Quote

 Thank you consists of just eight letters that form two of the most meaningful words in the English vocabulary... 
 Deborah Norville

If we said them throughout the year as often as we say them this week... the world would be a better place.

Looking back on Thanksgiving

I was just thinking back to all of the family members who have had a spot at our table over the years. It would be so nice to be able to gather every single one of them around the table again this year!!

Ah! on Thanksgiving day....
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich pumpkin pie?

John Greenleaf Whittier
