It is now the end of November and Thanksgiving is just a few days a way. I am in California in the Shasta mountains, visiting my husbands family. I was hoping that I was getting away from the rain......what was I thinking after all it is fall. It is nice to spend the holidays with family eating, visiting, shopping, & playing games.
I wanted to share a poem my mother in law wrote in the 1990's. She is Dutch. Her sister Mineca shared this with us while we visited the farm (small vineyard).
"An apple pie when it looks nice would make one long ... to have a slice.
If the taste should prove it so, I fear one slice would hardly do.
And so to prevent me asking twice, would pray give me a good big slice".

During this time let us be thankful for all things .... big & small and keep in our prayers those who are less fortunate. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
