Thanksgiving Day

Artist: Charles Collins

Here's something about gratitude that is pr0found - not sentimental:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

-- Melody Beattie

Making "sense of the past" is the best of these, in my mind. And yes, for that, I am truly grateful.
