Happy Thanksgiving

                                   (Photo is of  Lake Dillon in Dillon, Colorado, by Susan Wicker)

Today, Thanksgiving Day, we give thanks for all good things.

For family and friends who are so dear to our hearts.

For new babies, perfect and fresh from the hands of God. For their sweet lips and fingers and toes and their eyes when they meet ours.

For delicious turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and  all the other trimmings. Of course, for apple and pumpkin pies, too, and for great abundance.

We give  thanks for the beauty of the earth. For blue skies and clouds, sun and evergreen trees, lakes and brooks and streams.

We give thanks for being part of this great planet.

We give thanks for the gifts of technology and the ability to blog all over the United States and  in countries all over the world.

Today, we give thanks for the amazing gift of life.

To God, our Creator, we give the greatest thanks of all.

Special Thanksgiving blessings to all Followers, Commenters, and visitors to this blog.

Love you all and I'm so happy you are part of my life.

 WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST PART OF YOUR DAY SO FAR?

The best part will be when I get to go home from school. Even better, we have a three day weekend. Wishing you and yours a blessed day of thanksgiving. Tammy

I love your photograph - I feel thankful for that. Very nice things to be thankful for. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

I am grateful we made it home driving home in the pouring rain for 8 hours.
