Thanksgiving Eve ~ 2017



"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into 
enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."  ~~Melody Beattie 


Tomorrow we will celebrate with friends, 
but on this Thanksgiving Eve,
I invite you to share a quiet moment
to remember all for which you are grateful.
The following is a look back at a simple evening
spent here at home, just the two of us.

My  Favorite Season
It's rich tapestry of colors and textures 
warm both my heart and soul.
It's a season of thanksgiving.
I'm grateful for each of you,
my readers.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
