Imagine being a pilgrim or Indian about 300 years ago and how you might have communicated with others. Fast forward to today. Now we can go to many, many places all over the world to communicate, 'visit,' and explore, without ever leaving our computer chair. The pilgrims and Indians could never have imagined any of this.

Here in this country, we set aside one special day to be thankful for our abundance and blessings. This year one of the things that stands out is knowing an extended community here on the Internet via blogs.

I'm very grateful for all the places to discover, to be able to find such beautiful art in a variety of forms, and to 'meet' the diverse artists from so many artistic fields. I'm grateful that you are here today visiting this blog. Thanks for enriching my life by sharing it via art.

I appreciate the encouraging comments and helpful suggestions that many of you post here, and wish for all of you God's bounteous blessings on your life and your creativity. Happy Thanksgiving. (And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Carl, on Thanksgiving day.)

I, too, feel so "blessed and enriched" by this wonderful blogging community to which we belong. It adds so much to our busy lives to just sit and "visit" with one another occasionally, share our artistic efforts and just to know we have a world of friends out there.

Blessings to you and yours as we stop to give thanks. Stay safe, stay warm and know that you are a friend, Susan

I wish you and yours a wonderful celebration for Thanksgiving - your Waldorf Salad sounds fabulous. Over here a Waldorf salad is more savoury with chicken strips, peaches and walnuts on a bed of green salad and a delicious dressing. Trolled through earlier posts I had missed and loved all the Italian postcards.

Thynaks, Susan and Rhonda, and have a wondeful Thanksgiving. Joan, I think Grandma called the Waldorf salad a Waldorf "APPLE" salad. I've got it almost put togeher. Yours sounds delish too.
