Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and count ones blessings.
Each year when our family gathers (and it grows each year!),
my heart is full of emotions remembering those who have passed on and those who are here.
Family and friends are so precious!

Each Sunday when I am at church, I open up the hymn book and read the words of
one of my favorite hymns "For the Beauty of the Earth". 
It just rings true to all that I feel.

For The Beauty Of The Earth Hymn


For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasures pure and undefiled,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

For each perfect gift of thine,
To our race so freely given,
Graces human and divine,
Flowers of earth and buds of heaven,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise...


With a full heart, I am wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
Remember to count your many blessings and name them one by one!
