Thanksgiving Thoughts and Wishes
For husband and home, family and friends, city and country, for dog and books and art and music, for woods, orchards and wilderness, lakes and hills, for road trips and new places and coming home again, for work and rest and talk and silence, for apple blossoms and bottle gentians, for dragonflies and spiders, horses and chickens, for bread and cheese and apples and chocolate, cinnamon and curry and maple syrup, for sunshine, rain, fog, clouds and starry nights, soft lights at dusk, warm blankets at night, for falling asleep and dreaming and waking to another day, for memory and anticipation, joy and acceptance, for men and women of goodwill with loving hearts and open minds, for holidays that give me time to reflect on what’s important—Thank you, thank you, thank you!
To my readers, I wish you love and laughter, gratitude, joy and peace. And if you are traveling, safe travels!

Happy Thanksgiving, PJ!
Happy Thanksgiving to you! What a beautiful list of things for which to be thankful.
Lovely thoughts. And the cadence is perfect.
What beautiful images! You have so much to be thankful for in your neck of the woods.
We do, indeed. We are downright spoiled.
Hey! I just asked in Kathy's blog where your bookstore is, but I found you! :) Now I have another blog to read daily....your thoughts today are beautiful! I always enjoy your insight at "Opening the Door" so am glad to be here.
I'm also an avid reader - to own a bookstore would be like heaven!
Hi, Cindy. Wish you could be here with us today especially--book signing, reception, punch and cookies, village tree lighting. On a day-to-day basis, the "heaven" of having a bookstore presents a lot of challenges, but I find it worthwhile and went into it for the long haul, now in my 17th year. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
This was a lovely Thanksgiving post, Pamela. Hope you had a wonderful day.
Thank you, Kathy. It was a lovely day for us, as I hope yours was for you.
I'm thankful for you and your store. Have very safe travels to the sunny Southwest.
Dawn, what a sweet surprise to have a new comment on a ten-year-old post and to realize it is from a REAL PERSON and not a spam-bot! For your readership and bookstore custom and everything you do on your own -- truck safety, music, dog love -- I thank you and wish you a beautiful holiday!
