Two pies are cooling, and the potatoes are on the stove, getting ready to boil. Fernando Ortego’s “Hymns” CD is playing in the background and little Trixie is snoring away upstairs. (Seriously, do they make nose strips for dogs??)

I have much to be thankful for, and it always good and wise to take time out and recongnize all that God has given me, for it is all gifts, none of which I deserve. Circumstances in my life may change from year to year, or they may not — God is still the same. God is the source of comfort; joy; peace; all the things that REALLY matter. How wonderful is that???

I wish each of you a joyous Thanksgiving, as you look around the table and see people that you love and hold dear; all those wonderous people with their quirks or their non-quirks; as you scoop the mashed potatoes on your plate, thankful that you have the food to satisfy your hunger (and probably oversatisfy); for phone calls and emails from those that can’t be near you today, thankful for the sound of their voice, and how blessed are we for that technology.

Love you all and am thankful for your friendship, in whatever form that may be. 🙂
