Happy Thanksgiving!

We Thank Thee
By: Ralph Waldo Emerson
For flowers that bloom about our feet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For tender grass so fresh, so sweet,
Father, we thank Thee.
For the song of bird and hum of bee,
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.









(For the beautiful floral arrangement, complete with fresh sprigs of Rosemary for Remembrance, my sisters and I thank a dear family friend.  Such a thoughtful and caring expression of love.  Thank you, D.K.)

I know this has been a difficult Thanksgiving for your family. You were in my thoughts and prayers today.

Very pretty. I just love seeing flower arrangements done in unique ways. I hope you and family had a good Thanksgiving, though one chair was empty, the memories would be sweet.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! We have just finished up three days worth of Thanksgiving celebrations, and I can now say that we have moved into Christmas season.
