Chapter 11, Page 18, Book 18

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today I’m thankful for food

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above gold, it would be a merrier world.

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Having just had our family Thanksgiving Feast yesterday, I can say that food is something to be grateful for.  Everyone brought a dish to share and the table was piled high.  We celebrated the bounty of the year as we gathered together to ask the Lords blessings.  

We do enjoy an abundance of food.  Everyone in my family has more than enough.  And like the Pilgrims that had the first Thanksgiving, we are very thankful for what we have.

Good food is a celebration of life.

Sophia Loren

Food is the substance of our lives.  We couldn’t live very long at all without it.  Some foods are better for us than others, but a well balanced diet is essential to keeping healthy and strong.

On my thankful list for today is:

6532. for cartoons, especially Mickey Mouse, it’s his birthday
6533. for family gatherings, they warm my heart
6534. for new adventures every day

Oh yes, I am thinking that your gang has a blast when they gather. It is always tougher to get folks together once the families start to grow and each member has their own obligations to wife, husband and in-laws. So the base family has to work around it. I know we did, and had only two sons.
BUT when it is worked out what a blessing to see families grown making histories and memories of their own.
Love the pictures and YES the food looks delicious@!!!!!
Headed out to our Sunday morn breakfast, then church.

What a fine looking spread of food! I'm sure no one left that table still hungry! I did see that Mickey Mouse was celebrating his 90th birthday today! What an accomplishment for sure!
