“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

Friedrich Gottlob Koenig (German, Inventor best-known for his high-speed printing press, which he built together with watchmaker Andreas Friedrich Bauer. 1774-1833)

TIME:  9:01 PM
PLACE:  Home
SUBJECT:  Thankful feather

StellaDella and I made this feather for a school project earlier this month.  Each 1st grader decorated a large construction paper feather with their family; all of the feathers were displayed as part of a large turkey outside of their classroom. 

My sister hosted Thanksgiving at her house this afternoon.  My responsibility consisted of making the dressing and green beans (fresh ones, with onions and bacon – yum!).  I am thankful for the food we ate, the wine we drank and the family we celebrated the holiday with.
