Thankful

 “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them” John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American family and friends. As long as we remember to say please, thank you and appreciate all that is good in our lives it sure does make a difference in this fast paced modern world we live in. 

Thanksgiving has always been my favourite holiday, it can be a beautiful day, quiet and simple and uncomplicated as simply taking time to be thankful for all that is good.

Plymouth  was our home for many years. The things I love about the region include being able to smell pine and salty beaches at the same time, fresh seafood, sandy beaches, quiet forests with unexpected encounters with nature at play, the many little local artists and markets and shopkeepers, going to school and hanging out with kids with names that connected us to history.   The Plymouth Plantation is a fantastic adventure to visit to get a feel of life for the pioneers and appreciate their accomplishments.
 
This photo was taken on one of the beaches at Plymouth not far from the famous rock.

I guess Thanksgiving will also become a favorite holiday for me if we had that in our part of the globe.

Beautiful Thanksgiving thoughts~

I love the coast and mountains in the NE States. Plymouth is somewhere we thought was lovely when we've been - including the plantation.

There could not be a more lovely and appropriate place to celebrate Thanksgiving (even if it is by picture and memories).
