A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Give Thanks

Wow! Christmas music is being played already. I'm having Thanksgiving at my house next week and I just put out the rust-colored candles that smell like pumpkin and the fall leaves decorating the mantle and table. What in the world!

It's too bad that, in today's fast-paced society, we don't even have time to celebrate each individual holiday. How in the world can I savor the flavor of turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, etc., if I'm looking at Christmas lights and listening to Christmas music?

Thanksgiving is all about "THANKS". It's about thanking the Lord for the bountiful blessings He's given to us. Even though many of us are unemployed, we are among the top 2% of the world in wealth. And, yes, unemployment has touched one of our very own. Nevertheless, thanks is in order. We are having a turkey and all the trimmings. I wish you all the same simple "luxury".

Pilgrims, you started something and we aim to pass it on. Teach your children and grandchildren what Thanksgiving is really about. "Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go..."

Pleasant dreams of riding in a horse-drawn sleigh through the fields of snow; of cornstalks in brown fields; of turkey and a big holiday feast; of little ones running around the house; of pumpkin pie that'll knock your socks off...

Happy Thanksgiving, albeit a little early. That's how things go these days!
