“Thanksgiving is a joyous invitation to shower the world with love and gratitude.” ~Amy Leigh Mercree
Happy Thanksgiving friends,
I hope that today, whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, you find yourself surrounded by family, friends and love.
I am thankful that each day you come to Pinecones & Acorns to read a recipe, share a story or just “hang out.” And I am forever grateful for your kindness on good and bad days, for your notes of encouragement and support not only for me but for the other readers of the blog and that you feel comfortable here to share your ups and downs.
We’ve been though a lot together over these last 12 years and in case I have not expressed it enough I wanted to say thank you for being a friend that feels like family.
I leave you with this Thanksgiving prayer,
We asked for strength, and you gave us difficulties to make us strong.
We asked for wisdom, and you gave us problems to solve.
We asked for prosperity, and you gave us purpose and brains to use.
We asked for courage, and you gave us fears to overcome.
We asked for patience, and you gave us situations where we were forced to wait.
We asked for love, and you gave us troubled people to help.
We asked for justice, and you called us to be just and to lead with integrity.
Lord, we have received nothing that we asked for or wanted.
And yet, we received everything that we needed.
For this, we give thanks. Amen. ~Dr. Colleen Hanycz
