Now Thank We
A recent Facebook post included a quote attributed to Henry David Thoreau: "I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual...." On this Thanksgiving, I am devoting quiet time to reflecting on all that I am blessed to have. We live in a world of constantly wanting more, but on this day, I am content with who I am and what I have. Like Thoreau, my thanksgiving is perpetual. Today, I think of my loving husband Larry, my family and my friends, my work and my recreation, my writing and my reading, my warm home and my full refrigerator. I have everything I need and more than I could want. As we gather around the table today, may our prayer be that our thanksgiving be perpetual.
