As we sat drinking our coffee this morning, I listened to the familliar voice of one of our resident cardinals outside the kitchen window. He was telling the other birds that I had refilled the feeder, after letting it sit empty for 2 days. (bad, bad Jules!!). As soon as he put out the call, several purple martins and chickadees came to enjoy the bounty. I could watch them all morning, but alas, I myself have to prepare to go and enjoy a feast of my own.
Honeykins and I will make our annnual pilgrimage to Kentucky to visit family and over-indulge on a true southern thanksgiving, complete with deep fried turkey, cornbread dressing and gravy.
I will be giving thanks for many things, among them the fact that I have a wonderful family and many cherished friends. Blessed with good health and life’s comforts, I send out thoughts and good qi to those not so fortunate. Let the people you care for know that you love them. Do something special for someone who may not have the good fortune that you have. Share happiness on this day. Share Love.
