Gatherings 2021

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.”- Psalm 107:1

Happy Thanksgiving friends.

Last year Bob and I spent Thanksgiving together at home with no other family because of the pandemic.  I am so thankful we can gather together again.   I want you to know how thankful I am for you.  I am humbled by the many friends on FB that join my other readers that share my garden and blog.  My gratefulness and thankfulness overflows. Join me in the Dining Room.   Welcome!

We have a very open floorplan and the Dining Room is on the left when entering our home.  I have set a Thanksgiving table.

The beautiful placemats are a gift from a friend several years ago.

For my centerpiece, I have tried to draw out colors from the plates, even the apple.  Thanksgiving is a time to look at the beauty around us and to GIVE THANKS.

I have had these beautiful salad plates from Williams Sonoma for several years.  “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.”

“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness.  It’s the spark that lights a fire of JOY in your soul.” – Amy Collette

When guests are seated, I remove the pedestal holding this candle so guests can see one another.

Seek the wisdom of the ages, but look at the world with the eyes of a child. – author unknown

Lord, let me never forget the importance of gratitude.  Teach me to be grateful when my heart is full and when it breaks.  Hep me dance with JOY for the blessings around me.  Day and night I give thanks to you, Oh Lord, for this incredibly beautiful gift called Life.

Thank you friends for gathering with me.
