a most perfect example...

when i think of the first thanksgiving, i think of a moment in time in which a group of settlers felt so blessed to have made it through the first winter in a new world and to have been able to successfully sow their own crops and hunt, that they just wanted to celebrate, rejoice, and give thanks to God for blessing them with the fruits of their labors!!!

these men, women, and children made it through the proverbial "storm".

(not all made it. probably more didn't than did... so,to say that times were tough would have been an understatement. for those who did survive, it had to have been such a joyful, thankful, blessed occasion.)

thank God!!! it still happens, my friends!!!

people make it through their "storms" everyday:)

i'm one of them, aren't you???

the following is a most perfect example
of the true meaning of thanksgiving...
see if you agree:)


much love and God's blessings,
dani xx

Happy thanksgiving Dani!

What a wonderful video by Mr.Nielson, thank you for posting it. Very appropriate for Thanksgiving, I agree.

We don't celebrate it here, but my American friend has kindly invited our family over for a homecooked Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. She'll be making pumpkin pie too, which I've never had before!
