Sunday Thoughts ~ Thanksgiving

In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to each other’s homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings… 

for the food on their tables…

and the babies in their arms.” ~ Cynthia Rylant, In November

“All across America, we gather this week with the people we love to give thanks to God for the blessings in our lives.” ~ George W. Bush



Dear friends, wherever Thanksgiving Day may find you, I wish you and yours love and great joy.

Be safe in your travels, hug those you love extra tight and may the day bring you beautiful memories.



Happy Thanksgiving!





The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.” ~ William Blake

Happy Thanksgiving, Sandra. We’ll spend ours with Mr. P.’s side of the family, but I’ll be holding my side in dear thought. I hope yours is full of blessings.


Wishing you a beautiful Thanksgiving. Thanks for all the lovely joy you bring us in each post.


Your quote from November–I looked it up and really want a copy–is so very satisfying in a time when we could easily let disturbing events in the world make us forget all the good things in our lives.

All of the pictures are lovely but oh that silver soup tureen and the golden gourds by it!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I do so love this American tradition, we do not have it here in the UK, but I think it is particularly healthy to be reminded and to stop and think in this fast-paced life we lead about all that we DO have to be thankful for. Hope your day is all you hope for and more.
