The Giving of Thanks

For, after all, put it as we may to ourselves, we are all of us from birth to death guests at a table which we did not spread. The sun, the earth, love, friends, our very breath are parts of the banquet. ~ Rebecca Harding Thomas

There are so very many things to be thankful for today that I don’t even know where to begin. I am spending the day surrounded by part of my family, yet missing the other part so very much. I have the amazing good fortune of friends near and far, friends of the heart that wrap each other in warm thoughts no matter the distance between us.

It’s been quite a year, and I am grateful for so many parts of it.

I hope this day gives you many opportunities for the giving of thanks, in whispers and quiet moments, in the hustle and bustle of friends and family.

May the banquet table of your heart always be overflowing.

Happy Thanksgiving!
