We Gather Together!


But seriously, folks, this is the beginning of the season we love so much, because it involves being with our loved ones (and eating!). It is a wonderful time of the year.

In keeping with the season, it is time to look introspectively and count our many blessings. In a state of less than perfect economy (I’m trying to be gentle!), we still have so very much in comparison to many in the world.

Let’s take time during our Thanksgiving celebrations to say aloud something(s) that we are grateful for. I personally am thankful for my home, loving family, wonderful friends, food (I know–again!), a fantastic dog, and my health.

I will be with my husbands family in Pensacola, Florida this year. We are traveling tomorrow; it is about an 8 hour drive. I am bringing hot and cold packs for my back and neck, and pillows!

Please keep the season in your heart, and share it with others!

Peace to all,

  1. Hello Joan Ellen, Thinking of you during this special season. I was filled with joy to have my two sons home for Thanksgiving. We had a feast. One helped me get it on the table. I cooked their favorites.One son cleaned the leaves off my roof. The other blew leaves out of my flower bed.


  2. I could not have said it better my self. I love this time of year. Everyone is so happy and we get to spend a lot of time together it is just great.
