A children’s chorus gathers to wish you Thanksgiving blessings. Click just below to hear this rendition, less than 2 minutes long.
Thank you, dear reader, for gathering around our virtual table here every week. I’m so grateful that we have this connection.
If you have joined me after November 2013, you may not have read one of my earlier posts celebrating the Thanksgiving season. Here is the link to Thanks Giving Collection II.
Enjoy this special holiday with family and friends
and count your many blessings!
Happy Thanksgiving, Marian. Your blog is a blessing and I look forward to each new post.
That’s reassuring, Lynn. I learn so much about trivets and other antiques on yours. A trivet or two may be involved in your Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. Yes?
Happy Thanksgiving, Marian, to you and your family!
Neither of our families will lack for food. I have seen some luscious samples on you Facebook page. We are having each-one-bring-one (or2) at our daughter’s house. 🙂
Delightful Thanksgiving song Marian thank you! Those fresh and joyful faces! Some of them are wearing a particular kind of garb – Amish? Mennonite?
Happy Thanksgiving to you, family and friends!
Thank you, Susan. If your are referring to the video, the children are dressed up in costumes partly replicated from the colonial period in American history. Amish folk and Mennonite women wore prayer caps and simple dresses. Some still do.
All the best to you and your family this season as you approach summer in South Africa.
Warmest wishes for a lovely Thanksgiving, Marian! 💕❤️
Dear writer in arms – thank you for posting here! That’s my poor attempt at a pun recalling warm memories of our 6-month memoir course. Mine is taking much longer. How about you?
I am most grateful for your blog and for knowing you, Marian. Wishing you and your family many Thanksgiving blessings.❤️
Thank you, dear Kathy. You know the feeling is mutual of course. Blessings as we bring our stories to completion next year. Yes!
I’ll raise my glass to that, Marian!😊
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, MarIan. ❤
Thank you, Fatima. I suppose you’ll pause in your travels for a nice meal. The scenery I see our your Facebook page is spectacular.
Forsythia? Thankful for Easter breakfast?
The Easter meal was chosen for the prayer pose, hands folded. Usually we sing the Doxology with eyes wide open and often with hands clasped around the table. I expect we’ll do the same this Thanksgiving.
Beautifully sweet – just like you! Happy Grateful Thanksgiving to you, my blogging friend. xo
I count you among my favorite blogging friends too. Your blog is so rich with imagination, an encouragement to me always. Wight on!
Is the photo of the children at the Thanksgiving table one of yours?? Love that too. Have a wonderful day. I was just thinking the other day of friendships in this day: I count you as a friend, but yet our paths have not yet crossed. I’m so happy this morning as my kids head home and I’m the “over the river and through the woods” grandmother, baking gluten free pumpkin pie (first time ever, watch for the blog recipe) this morning! Blessings to you and yours.
Yes, it is, Melodie. It is an Easter setting, but I chose it because grandsons Patrick and Curtis and daughter-in-law Sarah had their hands folded. The photo was snapped about ten years ago. The boys turned 14 this fall. By the way, Ian, Curtis’ brother does well with gluten-free/casein-free foods, like your pumpkin pie recipe.
Safety to your kids heading “over the river and through the woods” to the welcoming homeplace, so cozy.
I count among my blessings too our friendship. Somehow I think we will meet some day in a non-virtual way. Wouldn’t that be great!
Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving, Marian. We have so much to be thankful for, don’t we? xo
Yes, indeed, Jill. I appreciate our sharing words in your space and mine these last few years. Enjoy the day, the season. And do pause to celebrate the many successes you have experienced this year. Yay!
Marian — The happiest of Thanksgivings to you and yours. I am grateful to be in your sphere of influence.
What a nice things to say, “your sphere of influence.” I guess our spheres overlap, siSTAR!
Thank you Marian.
You have much to celebrate this year including safety during the fires and smoke you had to endure this summer.
I’m thankful too we have this connection and our time together with gentle Ben. Blessings!
Enjoy your thanksgiving celebrations with your family! I am truly thankful that we found each other through the world of blogging. Sending hugs!!
Hugs back to you, Darlene. 🙂
Without the internet we would probably never had met. The digital world has no geographical boundaries. Yay!
So true. I loved the video as well. I remember singing this song as a child. Thanks for sharing it.
👍. I wonder if you sang it dressed iup in a costume at school. Or at church. Although Canadians have a different history, there may have been dress up involved. I believe “We Gather Together” has Dutch origins. 😍
Our Canadian Thanksgiving is a month earlier, Marian. Loved. the children’s choir, should teach that song to my grandchildre !
That’s true, Elfrieda. Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October. By the way, “We Gather Together” is a song in many Protestant hymnbooks. I believe we sang it in school too. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Happy Thanksgiving to ya’ll !!
What a delight to find you here, sister Kathy! Happy Thanksgiving as you gather around the table with the Washington family. 🙂
The warmest of Thanksgiving wishes to you, Cliff, and your family. So glad we’re virtual friends!
Thanksgiving blessings to you and Bob. So glad too we have a virtual friendship which may become a face to face encounter some day. 🙂
Sending warm wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving to you and your family Marian…Love the picture it is beautiful 🙂
Welcome, Carol who always has a scrumptious recipe from her Thai kitchen. I’m glad you enjoyed the photo from long ago. The grandsons are half grown now and eating twice as much as they did then.
Thank you, Marian…I expect they do… I know I can’t keep up with the amount of food mine pack away in one sitting…Enjoy Thanksgiving x
Happy thanks giving to you and your family my sweet friend . I love our chats together , pot of tea , best china , maybe a Welsh cake or two .
I found you and your blog way back from our mutual wonderful friend Laurie…I’m forever in her debt 👋👋I think that’s a and wave …I hope it is 😊
Thanks for the hearty wishes and for the reminder that we met through Laurie. Some of my best online friends are Welsh. Do you know Sir David of the Barsetshire Diaries? Like you he is very expressive and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
If you ever cross the Pond, you and hubby are welcome in our guest room. Doesn’t Florida sound nice in the winter?
And yes, best china, pot ‘o tea and tasty cake. Ah! <3
The video was beautiful Marian. I wish you and your a beautiful Thanksgiving. 🙂 🙂
Thank you, thank you, dear Debby. We are now eating leftovers – so good the second time around. Blessing always! 🙂
Yum! I love leftovers! 🙂
Appreciating life every day makes it better.
I am happy you cheer up mine with your lovely nature snaps. Through you I get to see Sweden. Thanks, Lady Fi!
Thank you, Marion. I wish I could hear those children’s voices in a pleasant way, but I remember so many wonderful children’s choirs and concerts. My oldest son has a beautiful voice–a big baritone.
May I take a wild guess? I imagine your son’s voice has a timbre much like Vic’s. Either way, you must rejoice when you hear his big baritone booming.
