The Gift That Keeps Giving
This week we enter into the month of Thanksgiving--things like holiday prep, family, turkey (or tofurkey!) will take on increasing space in our thoughts and days, and we’ll be reminded once more that whatever is going on in our lives, somewhere, somehow, we’ve got a seat at a table of bounty where the centerpiece is a cornucopia, filled to the brim and spilling over, with blessings.
For each of us the seat, the table, and the horn of plenty may look different, but the response is the same: gratitude. And the best part? Gratitude is itself a gift, crowning its giver with grace and oh so much well-being.
We invite you to enter into this month with us with a heart open to giving thanks, and receiving the gifts that gratitude so lavishly bestows. Share your stories of thanksgiving, tell us what you’re grateful for and how it enriches your life, and know that we are grateful for you!

My cousin, who is like a brother, was deployed in September to Afghanistan for at least a year. His request at Labor Day was for Thanksgiving dinner. Many of our traditions are wrapped up in this dinner. Nanna would host until her passing at age 90 and the same items were on the menu every year. The traditional turkey, potato filling, mashed potatoes, candied sweet potatoes, peas, corn and homemade waffles all smothered in gravy. Then there are the chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin pie and apple pie. Comforting to know the tradition is there and carried on every year. Not many variations. So this Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the tradition, for the family that appreciates and embraces the tradition and for the comfort of the tradition my cousin felt to share with us before his deployment.
