The Spirit of Thanksgiving


 “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. I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.”    

Ralph Waldo Emerson

May you and  yours have a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving!
