Happy Thanksgiving……

I saw this mural in Ipswich, Massachusetts a few years ago…It tells the story of the first Thanksgiving.      In front of the  mural stands my niece, daughter and mini niece…a very happy memory. 13603834_10154207083495396_5242055752857820943_oI Lived in the States from 1966 til 1993 when I enjoyed many a happy Thanksgiving celebration.      I always look upon this holiday with great affection.

I came across this example of Mother Nature’s magnificent bounty when visiting a friend in Haye on Wye.        20-11-15 - 1 (1120)We are reminded today to be thankful for each moment and grateful for all our blessings.

I have just had a beautiful time away for which I am so grateful.    To spend time with good friends is one of life’s greatest joys.

May everyone be surrounded with magical hummingbirds this day.   – watercolour

    I remember this great photo from a previous post, and really love the way your loved ones look like they are part of the first Thanksgiving. Wonderful post, Janet, celebrating the joys of gracious living. Really like the apple photo too. My best wishes to you, dear friend–

      Good morning dear Jet. I have been thinking about you a great deal and am so happy to see you here. I imagine that this Thanksgiving is a very special one for you….I have just returned from a lovely time in Wales and Somerset filled with good friends and much laughter. What more could anyone wish for. I will be catching up with blogs in the next day or so….Janet 🙂

    Thank you, Janet. Just happens that late last night Diana and I lay in bed in the darkness, talking about how grateful we are for having each other in our lives–and our children and grandchildren, and the fulfilling and comfortable life we live, and all the kindness and bounty around us. Happy hummingbirds to you too, friend, and thank you for all the joys and uplifting ideas you spread through the world.

      Thank you David. Gratitude is such an important part of our lives. Enjoy – All things being equal I will post my blog tomorrow about Meir and children’s art. His card is in the post. Janet 🙂
