… seeing the gifts. . .

What a blessing it is that we have this day
to stop & think of all the blessings that we have.

Sometimes these blessings are simple gifts 
that we can too easily take for granted.

I find myself surrounded
with blessings
. . . & those wonderful simple gifts.

Included in my simple gifts . . .
. . . the sound of Dad in the kitchen getting the turkey 'dressed'
. . . that I get to prepare all the rest of the fixin's while he will be taking a nap. . .
& a bit later we will sit together, hold hands, thank the Lord together,
. . . & simply. . . that we have this time together.

I am truly blessed.

I pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, & that the blessings & simple gifts that are yours come to your mind & heart throughout the beginning of this busy holiday season.

(. . . by the way, I count you as a blessing too!)

. . . & if you can take a minute or two. . .
here's one of my favorite songs. . . perfect for today 
(done so beautifully by Yo Yo Ma, & Allison Krause)
