Thanksgiving is truly my favorite holiday. There is no other holiday where we can dedicate some time to be thankful for our friends, our family and all our riches....even if our riches are that we are rich in spirit.
Of course, I also love giving thanks symbolized by "the feast". I know everyone has their favorites and their own traditions.....whether its the stuffing, the pumpkin pie, the cranberry relish or all of it together. Even though the menu doesn't change much from year to year, I look forward to it all the same.
I love the parade and the welcoming of the Christmas season and of course Santa Claus. I love having another day of football, because its the perfect time to .....dare I say, knit!
So I want to take this moment to say THANK YOU to all my wonderful friends, my supportive family, my dedicated readers and the many many knitters who have purchased my designs for making every day, in every way, better and better.
Lastly, I want to share a poem that I have always loved about family, friends & those that touch our lives.
We are a part of a tree.
Which began as a seed
And grew tall and strong
There are many branches,
Each receiving strength from the roots
There are many leaves
Each full and green .... offering shade
Some day we will blossom
Each in our own time
In our own way
And though the wind may shake us
We will remain a part of the tree
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
