Happy Thanksgiving!


I awoke
this morning
with devout
thanksgiving for
my friends, the
old and the new.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am so thankful for all of you. Whether you're a longtime visitor (coming up on seven years!) or new to this little blog of mine, I am very grateful for your friendship, love and support. I wish you a lovely day with your family and friends.

Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest-home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
Henry Alford
"Come, Ye Thankful People, Come," 1844

    1. Thanks so much, Diane. We had a lovely, lovely visit with our daughter and her boyfriend in Dallas. Lots of sight-seeing and delicious meals. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, which made today's snowy morning and COLD temps a bit more unbearable than usual.
