Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!

"Lord, behold our family here assembled.
We thank you for this place in which we dwell, for the love that unites us,for the peace accorded to this day,
for the hope with which we expect the morrow;
for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth. Amen"
_ Robert Lewis Stevenson

Wishing everyone who celebrates, a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!
I am so thankful for your friendship, and for all your good thoughts and wishes!

Hi Pat!

I'm doing some blog "housekeeping" because I'm so
far behind with blogs. I find the ones I "follow" get lost
in the shuffle, so I'm moving yours to my sidebar and
taking off the "follow". Hope you don't mind.
