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 (1803-1882)
As with all holidays, we look forward to many traditions. At Thanksgiving, we set the table the evening before. When my girls were in pre-school and Kindergarten they came home with these adorable pine-cone turkeys and paper Pilgrims they made. Since that time, (my girls are in high school now!), we have placed them as the centerpiece on our Thanksgiving table. I love them now as much as I did when they first brought them home. Today we made our traditional sweet potato, pumpkin and apple pies. (Okay, I have to confess, I ate a very small piece of the sweet potato pie already.) I hope tomorrow finds you surrounded by friends and loved ones. We have so much to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
