Peace & Plenty -A Blessed Thanksgiving

how very blessed we are on this good earth.
in the beauty of it all, Her forgiveness when we are not good to it, the bounty of it when we are. the fields and flowers and the animals that grace our lives. Finding peace in the quiet of the first snow, woodsmoke rising from every chimney
in our little valley...
a flickering candle in every window
and the warmth of my family that smiles at me from around our table.

For dear friends near and far
and for those men & women in service to our country
away from their own families,
who watch over us and keep us safe.
for all this I am most grateful & thankful.
I wish for all of you the blessings of the most precious of all good things,
I wish you
love & peace.
with love on this day,
Christine

Dear Christe',
We were certainly living in two different worlds on Thanksgiving Day. Our temp went up to 72, here in Wilmington, DE. Very warm, but beautiful. Your photo is lovely. I'm off to Philadelphia today, with Carole and our hubbies. I hope I get some nice pictures for my blog. Happy day.
