Happy Thanksgiving....

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," 
that would suffice...Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace,
 the celebration of work and the simple life... a true folk-festival 
that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty 
of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year - 
and the deep,  deep connection of all these things with God..

Today we return home to Florida, home to Brutus.  This has been a 
very good stay in Mexico and what made a good stay even better was
having my sister and nephew with us. For me it will always be one of the best
times ever in Mexico.  We did so many thing and we just bonded even more.

Thanksgiving is such a big celebration here in the USA.  It's one of the holidays where 
hundreds of thousands of travellers make their way back to home.  Everyone looks forward 
to being home with family and loved ones, and enjoying a very traditional Thanksgiving meal
 during this time of giving thanks.  Traditional Thanksgiving Meal.  Interesting tid bit, 
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare.  They are consumed in twelve
 minutes.  Half-times take twelve minutes.  This is not coincidence.

For us it's has already been a good Thanksgiving.  Though it would have been 
the best to be with the entire family, I will take what has been given as a special gift 
and for that I am grateful.  Will soon see Brutus and that will complete our day.
For now wishing you all a good day and don't forget, "as we express our gratitude, 
we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them"  
Happy Thanksgiving to all.  Be safe, enjoy and yes put on those few extra pounds...

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, 
much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes
 from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds...
