We Gather Together

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway,
Thanksgiving comes again!

Our dinner was on Thanksgiving Eve, and we could not have been more grateful. The little girls made place cards out of leaves that they had collected in the backyard. Rachel used her china that was a birthday gift; each plate is unique and was painted by a different friend. Our dinner of combined efforts was wonderful. Oh my goodness you could feel the love in Rachel and Brent's home!

I am thankful for, first and foremost, my family. The world may be full of problems, but today we are grateful for our table comforts and all the simple pleasures in life.
