Greatest Blessings...

The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils,

light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand,

the path of God just before you. --Robert Louis Stevenson.

I've come to realize over the years,

that the every day things

are our greatest blessings:

the food on the table,

our country, our homes

our family and friends,

our health and well-being,

the very air we breathe and

the sunshine that warms the earth.

And it's these things that we

should be the most grateful for

as we celebrate Thanksgiving;

for they give us comfort and strength,

filling our hearts with gladness

and making each day meaningful.

And it's my Thanksgiving wish

that as my family and friends

gather to celebrate Thanksgiving

that they will remember to be thankful

for the simple blessings

they receive every day.

Wishing you a beautiful

and blessed Thanksgiving!
