Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving really is a beautiful holiday.
One where for once we don’t think about giving or receiving gifts or spending copious amounts of money on stuff.
Where family gathers around the beloved dinner table, sharing their signature recipes.
Life is celebrated with glorious smiles.
The fruits of the year rest on thankful tongues.
