Good Morning Gentle Readers,
As all y'all already know, Thanksgiving is TWC's favorite holiday. That's why I think I can get into the thankful meme that's going around Facebook, and to a lesser extent over at Google Plus. Heck, it might be tweetin' too, but I don't know.
The thankful theme/meme has manifestated itself in several different ways, ranging from simple, to corny, to funny, to moving. I think I like Tamale Girl's friend Kim has an interesting approach.....
November's challenge: find one thing each day during the month that you are grateful for, and take a photograph that represents that item in some way. It doesn't have to be an exact representation, but something that reminds you or triggers that thought. Have fun with it!
Day Four: TWC is grateful for this sunset seen from my bedroom.....
Harriet Beecher Stowe had this to say about the High Holy Day of Thanksgiving.....
The king and high priest of all the festivals was the autumn Thanksgiving. When the apples were all gathered and the cider was all made, and the yellow pumpkins were rolled in from many a hill in billows of gold, and the corn was husked, and the labors of the season were done, and the warm, late days of Indian Summer came in, dreamy, and calm, and still, with just enough frost to crisp the ground of a morning, but with warm traces of benignant, sunny hours at noon, there came over the community a sort of genial repose of spirit - a sense of something accomplished.
