Thanksgiving 2018

I have pies made, along with a fresh cranberry salad, which are to be my contribution for a Thanksgiving gathering we are attending with local family and friends.  I want to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving.  It has always been our family's favorite holiday.  There is only good food, friendship and low expectations.  Thanksgiving avoids all of the commercialism and hype that often accompanies Christmas.

"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

"The heart that gives thanks is a happy one.
for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time.  The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for.  And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become.  We don't give thanks because we're happy.  We are happy because we give thanks." -Douglas Wood

"Thou that hast given so much to me, give me one thing more.....a grateful heart."
- George Herbert

Enjoy the holiday.  I'll be back on Monday.
