A Week Of Thankfulness: Day Four

Yes, I am thankful for this heaping helping of holiday deliciousness. 

But when I look at the scene of my Thanksgiving dinner, I see many more reasons to be grateful:

For my family, who worked together with me to prepare the feast. 
For the financial blessings that put this food on our table.
For this yearly reminder to give thanks.
For the original Thanksgiving feast that celebrated the genuine - albeit short-lived - brotherhood between the Native Americans and the first English settlers.
For this plate, a wedding gift and a celebration of a marriage that has stood the test of time.
For my mother-in-law's silverware, and all the gifts and sacrifices made by the family who came before me.
For a glass of bubbly cider, a simple and inexpensive but luxurious pleasure.
For that spunky little child-made pine cone turkey, reminding me of the happy days of my daughters' childhoods.

I am thankful for all the details of my life - the tiny threads that create the tapestry of my days, and make each moment truly memorable.

Also, I am thankful for second helpings.
