Happy Thanksgiving Generals!!

I want to take a moment to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.  This year we will be hosting 17 people.  Three of those people coming to our home are members of a Fulbright Scholar’s family from Bahrain.  They have never been part of a Thanksgiving feast so I am sure it will be an interesting experience!

The simple nature of Thanksgiving makes it my favorite time of the year.  Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem, Give Thanks, captures the reasons why.

Give Thanks

for each new morning
with its light
for rest and shelter
of the night
for health and food
for friends and love
for everything
thy goodness sends

Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels to you and yours!
