Thanksgiving 2013

Once again in the USA, we pause on the fourth Thursday of November to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. Families and friends gather, parades and football games preempt normal daytime television, large amounts of food are prepared and consumed, drowsiness ensues – and Turkeys throughout the land are relieved they’re not part of the feast.

“About 12 pounds, why do you ask?”   A female wild turkey watches me warily at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs

But seriously, this year especially I’m grateful for so many wonderful things in my life.  I hope all of you are as blessed as I am or even more so.   Spend a few moments contemplating the good things in your own life.  Pause and savor them.  Be thankful.  Cherish your family and friends.

And then – strive even harder to be one of the things that your family and friends are so grateful for.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go spend time with your family and friends!

  1. Beautiful! Thank you so much for not ending the post with a photo of a turkey on a … platter. I’d so much rather see them alive and happy. 🙂 Great shots (and words)! Thanks for sharing.
