THANKS giving

What a blessed Thanksgiving weekend we had. There is nothing more wonderful & more important to me than to have all of my precious family together under one roof. Every single one was here for dinner - happy, noisy, boiterous chaos.

For a table centre, I stuck a candle in a wee pumpkin and had everyone add what they were thankful for. It was quite an extensive list. There was all of our family on it & the dogs of course, a donkey & cat & a couple of Scotty's friends, and sports & rain & trees & colour & sunshine & maple syrup & hair & life & the number 3. It generated a fair bit of discussion. It was little 5 year old Lauren who remarked that who really needed to be on it was God. We not only needed to be thankful TO Him, but FOR Him.
Out of the mouths of babes.
