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

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
Oprah Winfrey
