"Thankfulness is the soil in which joy thrives."
I confess, these last couple of years I found it hard work to be joyful. But the above quote gives a simple formula. We have much for which to be thankful. Lots of Love to all our family and friends! May God bless you and your family today.
Now, please use your imagination (on our new computer, I haven't figured out how to downsize pictures, lol) -- on the wall in our hallway we have constructed a Thanksgiving Tree. It's become our November tradition every year. We crumpled up brown packaging paper and molded it into a tree trunk and branches, adding colored handprints, each printed with something for which we are grateful.
