Just want to say a very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! When we share resources, knowledge and a meal together, as on the first Thanksgiving, may we remember that we are all part of the human family, brothers and sisters to each other. As I reflect on this I remember my childhood – my mom shared her love of plants with the neighbors. She would start clippings from her house plants and, once rooted, share them with friends and neighbors for holidays. One neighboring family would bring over a plate of homemade cookies baked by their grandma. It’s often the little things such as these that create bonds of friendship and brotherly love. This Thanksgiving, may we join together to give thanks to the Lord and Father of us all for His providence, love and care for each of us. We can celebrate our differences as we learn from each other, enriching all our lives, and honoring the God Who gave us the various gifts. I hope you have a wonderful, blessed time celebrating with your family and friends this Thanksgiving.
P.S.- Remember to take time to read with the little ones during the holiday weekend. Cherished childhood memories are made of moments like these. : )
