not pie or turkey or football or shopping...it's about thankfulness...at surviving the year, for enough to eat, for health and family, for anything in your life that evokes that sigh of relief or overwhelming gratefulness. my list of thankful things is long, some are serious and important and others not at all. cannot imagine how difficult life was in 1620, how awful that voyage must have been...no place for the squeamish or laid back types. it was all about survival, freedom, a journey's end, a new beginning....and of course, quilting! happy thanksgiving!
