Reflections on Thanksgiving

Yesterday our family had a very peaceful Thanksgiving.  Hours of preparation can make us exhausted, but when we are all together at the dinner table on Thanksgiving we have so much to be thankful for.  Families gather and just  being able to be together is sometimes a miracle in itself.  This year our family was especially thankful for the expertise of doctors and surgeons.  God has plans for all of us, and this past year He has blessed our family abundantly with many gifts. I think this poem sums up everything:

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 (1803-1882)

Here is a recipe for one of my favorite day after Thanksgiving lunches. I think you will chuckle when you read it!

1  large slice of turkey
cranberry sauce

Place turkey on plate. Top with cranberry sauce, stuffing and gravy, in that order.  Heat in microwave till piping hot.  Enjoy!!!!
