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
Grace was recited at the Thanksgiving table, but left out what filled my heart most yesterday….the family members who travelled to be at our table, including the one who could not make it, but would have if he were not so far away. Thank goodness for video chats!
I am just a few weeks short of a year anniversary of this blog! I am very thankful for the readers I have and thankful for their inspiring blogs as well. I think I will save those reveries for New Years Eve! The next few weeks will most likely be a blur of trying to do too much in seemingly too few days, so I am grateful for a happy and good day with family yesterday. Try to keep the thankfulness present in each day!
That’s the challenge, isn’t it?…….to remain present enough each day to maintain the awareness of all those gifts.
It sounds like you had a full table – and it doesn’t get much better than that – video chats and all.
What a lovely grace!! And beautiful centerpiece!! Glad you were at least able to connect visually with your family member who couldn’t join you! And early congratulations on your blogaversary Isn’t it amazing how fast that first year goes?
It was SPLENDID in all ways – we loved being with you and loved seeing out Matt on the computer and we can hope and pray for MORE days when we are blessed to be together.
GOOD MORNING! SO nice to meet you! And no, I have not been to CLAYFARM but I must! I am a new Etsy seller and like other on-line goodies such as PINTEREST, I am addicted! AHHH!
Thank you so much for your visit and sweet comment! Now, go out and enjoy the LIFE AND LOVE we have been so graciously accorded! Anita
