Thanks Given

Thanksgiving 2010

I hope all who partake enjoyed a happy, healthy Thanksgiving. We shared a quiet intimate dinner at home; just the four of us. This is no easy task with all of the hustle and bustle in each of our daily lives', so we are truly grateful to have been able to carve out this time for reflecting and reconnecting.

Thanksgiving is one of those complicated celebrations for me, as I'm not too keen on its painful historical past. I do however, remain meditatively mindful of the lives, culture and history lost when we gather to savor our own sweet, but fleeting time together.

Peace, gratitude and grace

And Peace and Grace to you. I like that pumpkin 'dish' on your table.

This is beautiful! I love the image, especially with the little hand in the shot... It feels like a great place for a little hand (thus a little person) to feel loved and nurtured...Can't explain it!

I appreciate your perspective on the holiday. I don't tend to like holidays at. all. The pressure of getting it right, doing things the same (same food, same rotation of locations...some would call that tradition, lol)...This almost feels to me like the most in-authentic time of of the year, *but* I can handle appreciating the chance to spend time together that we otherwise don't. I think this will be the lens I will look through from now on and see how it goes :)
