Thanksgiving

"I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am increasingly distrustful of the material accretions that more and more seem to encumber me, and mindful of the rich blessings of fellowship with people such as you. So far, even where I have found people to be wrong-headed or disagreeable, I have been able to come away from each encounter with some new piece of an idea or perspective and I have been richer for the experience.

Thank you for sharing the experience of your life with me, and for sharing mine.

What a beautiful greeting, Always Question. I come here a day late! But Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

AQ, I certainly hope I fit into such a category. I know you do in my book.

As usual, I'm days late and a more than a few dimes short! This is ever so lovely, AQ!! And I agree with you on those one doesn't particularly enjoy -- I've rarely met anyone from whom I couldn't learn something. Hope your Thanksgiving was as blessed with great food & good company as mine! Hugssssssss, my friend!
