Thanksgiving 2007

I read a good piece by Joseph Epstein today in the Wall Street Journal. He quoted the poet W.H. Auden, "let all your thinks be thanks." What a terrific thought to plant into the minds of readers today.

And, I like this that I found while looking for a good Thanksgiving quote:
"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." - Theodore Roosevelt.

Seems many credit JFK for it, but TR was the original. In more ways than one.

I wish everyone many Thanksgiving blessings to count and a bountiful feast. Enjoy our truly American holiday.
