O, Beautiful…

for spacious skies…

for amber waves of grain…

for purple mountain majesties, above the fruited plain…

America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with Brotherhood…

From sea to shining sea…

— K. L. Bates


Wishing you all a joyous Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, and good cheer!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Linda.Have a great time with your lovely family.

    I was all set for a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving too until I saw on TV what’s happening in India. I have no joy now. But life goes on and am praying for all Indians and others there. Kids are excited today, so I will be cooking! πŸ™‚

    Hi Asha, I know it’s been a difficult time to feel like celebrating in the midst of such awful things… I’m glad to see you here as always πŸ™‚
