Thanksgiving Approaches

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Besides family fun and a helping of tradition, it is the bridge to winter and the Christmas holiday.

What stands out in the way of art and literature to you when you think of Thanksgiving, autumn or fall? Let’s pretend it isn’t the food for one moment. I know you’re stuck on the apple or pumpkin pie, maybe with a slice of cheddar cheese or topped with whipped cream respectively.

Consider what speaks to you in the sentiment of Thanksgiving and share, a song, a poem, a story or novel. Perhaps a great person or moment in history stands out as a special remembrance of people and times in our history to be thankful for.

I thank you for sharing.

    When pumpkin pie is staring at me from my plate that’s all I can think about. Seriously though, Thanksgiving for me has always been special because when my Mom was alive that was the one day she wanted her entire family together. And, the youngest in the family would always say grace and offer thanks. It was the one day she and I would cook the entire day together and after the meal when everyone went home we would just sit and talk for hours. I so miss all of that now and as tears approach while writing this I have to say they are tears of joy for those memories.

    Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
