Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Pears & Company

I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day!  I know not everyone around the world celebrates Thanksgiving with us here in the United States, but I'm certain that everyone has something to be thankful for no matter how large or small it may be.

I'm thankful that I will be spending Thanksgiving with my folks nearby and that my brother and his family will be there too.  We are all pitching in and bringing food - I'm bringing the turkey and dressing so I'll be up early in the morning to get it in the oven.  I've already made a couple of pies to take too.  What are you doing for Thanksgiving?  Cooking anything special? What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving! 

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 (1803-1882)

 Psalm 145:7 (NIV)
They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
