Emily reminds me to be thankful for all the simple joys this fall...crunching leaves, the crisp air with the scents of autumn, walking and enjoying autumn colors and nature all around. I can clearly see how thankful she is for her sunbeam, especially after another round of storms and windy weather. She also likes looking at my treasured photos with me, usually sitting on my photo albumns to make sure I don't miss anything. This treasured photo is of my kids, much younger then, when they all had to be Indians (actually only my son was an Indian for a school play, but the girls couldn't be left out for Thanksgiving photo!) This photo is a simple joy that makes me smile...Emily too. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
