Thank you for the food we eat, thank you for the world so sweet, thank you for the birds that sing, thank you God for everything♥

Lord, behold our family here assembled. We thank thee for this place in which we dwell, for the love that unites us, for the peace accorded to us this day, for the health, for the food, and the bright skies that make our lives delightful, for our friends in all parts of the earth.
Give us courage, gaiety, and the quiet mind. Spare to us our friends, soften us to our enemies. Bless us, if may be, in all our innocent endeavours. If may not, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come.May we be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath, and in all changes of fortune loyal and loving to one another.
As the clay to the potter, as the windmill to the wind, as the children of their sire, we beseech of Thee this help and mercy for Christs sake. Amen.

~~Robert Louis Stevenson

Update from our beautiful family member Sarah  (as posted by her on Facebook)
This year sheds a whole new light on what it means to be thankful. I am so thankful for the love and support I have received from my family and friends. Nothing compares to the feeling I get when I read a comment, get a phone call or am visited by someone... There has been so much light that has come out of a dark time. Thank you to everyone!!!!

I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving Day has a fabulous meal and special times shared
with loved ones♥♥

Remember every day is one to give thanks♥

You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance."
- Kahlil Gibran,
The Prophet

O Thou Who has given us so much, mercifully grant us one more thing: a grateful heart.
~George Herbert

For each new morning with its light
For rest and shelter of the night
For health and food, for love and friends
For everything thy Goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

November loves the pilgrim soul in you and longs to erase the fretting from your frazzled face.  With the holidays fast approaching, have you ever grumbled your way this month's gifts of grace?  Family, feasting, and fussing might be en route, but comfort charms, a winter's tale or two, sumptuous pajama suppers and splendor in the glass.  The stunning ordinary in the simply overlooked.  Let that cup runneth over with sensuous self-preservation.
From the Book
Romancing the Ordinary
by Sarah Ban Breathnach

best of all
is to preserve everthing in a pure , still heart,
and let there be for every pulse a thanksgiving,
and for every breath a song.
