In the United States, today is Thanksgiving. Because we are taking a more honest look nowadays at exactly what happened in this country when the Pilgrims came over, the holiday has lost some of its luster. And rightly so. However, even though the scales might have fallen from our eyes, a day of gratitude where we celebrate the harvest with family and friends can only be a good thing.
And speaking of gratitude…yesterday, our neighbor, a young woman, came over bearing these little gems from the hens she keeps in her backyard.
What wonderful variety and color! I tried to pay her for the eggs, but she wouldn’t take any money.
This brings us to another g word—generosity. When the two words—gratitude and generosity—are twined together, the world is definitely a better place.
So on this holiday, I am grateful for the generosity of my neighbor, who gave me these eggs without expecting anything in return.
And while I am on the subject of gratitude, I also want to express thanks for my many blogging friends near and far. You all make my world a brighter place, that’s for sure.
Many, many thanks!
